Fiery Jalapeno Buffalo Burgers with Sweet Potato Buns

YUM!! The sweetness of the sweet potato pancake aka "bun" compliments the spiciness of this burger nicely!




yields 4 burgers 

1 jalapeno pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
1 teaspoon onion powder ( I used a bit more!)
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 lb ground bison


Dice and/or chop the pepper and grill it separately first ( take out all seeds and white ribs first unless you like an extra spicy burger) 

In a separate mixing bowl combine the meat, roasted pepper, and add the spices until well integrated.

Form into four 4-ounce patties and grill the burgers for 4-5 mins per side or until they are done to your liking. 

SWEET Potato Pancake AKA "BUN" (for a low-carb option you can also use carrots instead of sweet potatoes) 




Yield- 4-5 large pancakes

3 eggs
2 teaspoons coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups shredded sweet potatoes ( use a food processor!)
coconut oil for pan frying 


In a medium sized bowl beat the eggs with the coconut four, cinnamon, ground ginger and sea salt. Mix in the shredded sweet potatoes until well combined....

Add some coconut oil to a large skillet over medium heat
spoon the mixture into the skillet in cakes that are 4-6 inches in diameter and cook approximately 2-3 minutes per side- flipping as you would a normal pancake. 


  1. I want to turn sweet potato shepherd's pie into a burger! Either with this sweet potato bun option OR a sweet potato sauce.

  2. I used the bun recipe to make a pizza crust and it was amazing! I subbed garlic powder and cayenne for the cinnamon and ginger, and using one of those pizza pans with the holes in it, it worked like a dream. I've also made breakfast 'English muffins' with the bun recipe using egg rings to make them the right shape. Thank you for this recipe!
