Instructions
Prepare the "Buns"
  1. Preheat your oven broiler.
  2. Slice sweet potato into 8, 1/4" thick rounds and place evenly on a lightly greased baking pan, do not overlap. Place under broiler 2 rack-rungs from the top and cook for 6-7 minutes, or until browned, not burned.
  3. Remove and flip to alternative side, return to oven and cook another 4-5 minutes until soft throughout and browned. Set aside when finished cooking.
Prepare the Burgers
  1. Preheat a large round pan over medium heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the seasonings evenly with the ground beef/meat. Form into 8 flat, even-sized balls and flatten into burgers.
  3. Chop the onion and pepper into slices and mince the garlic; set aside.
  4. Place burgers into the hot pan and allow to cook for 2 minutes. Cover and continue cooking another 5 minutes or until you cannot see any pink on the up side. Flip burgers and cook another 3-5 minutes to desired doneness. When burgers are finished, transfer to a plate and cover.
  5. Add the onion and pepper to the hot pan directly into the juice from the burgers. Cook for about 5 minutes or until they reach desired doneness. Stir in the garlic and add the burgers back into the pan to reheat.
  6. Build your burgers with one sweet potato slice on the bottom, adding the sauteed veggies, tomato, burger, and hummus/mustard (or other desired toppings). Enjoy!
