PB & J Bacon Sweet Potato Toast Burger

  • Author: Kelsey


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 4 heaping teaspoons peanut butter
  • 4 heaping teaspoons jelly (your favorite kind – i love smuckers “simply fruit”)
  • 2 large sweet potatoes


  • Divide ground beef into 4 balls and form them into the shape of your sweet potato toast slices (but a bit larger as they will shrink when cooked).  Season lightly on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Place a pan over medium high heat and once it is hot, cook bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan and set asie.
  • Keep the pan on medium high heat with bacon grease in it and cook beef patties for about 2 minutes per side or until desired doneness is achieved (this depends a lot on your pan, stove, how thick your patties are and how you like them cooked!).
  • Make your sweet potato toast (directions below) and slather 1 heaping teaspoon of peanut butter (or however much you like) on one piece and 1 heaping teaspoon of jelly on another piece.  
  • Place burger patty on the peanut butter side, followed by a slice of cooked bacon (cut in half), then the jelly side. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Makes 4 burgers!

How to make Sweet Potato Toast:

  • Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Add to the toaster like you would bread and toast on high. Toast them 2-3 times through until there is browning on both sides and it is cooked through.
