This Sweet potato burger is definitely something I’ll make again. The cheddar and jalapeño, cilantro, date and sweet potato was a nice mix of flavors.

with the help of the waxed paper place another patty on top and pinch the edges together so the cheese doesn’t escape during cooking.

You could put some in the freezer for another time. I thought I was going to do that but ended up cooking all of them.

I had the cheese melt out of one and fold in half when I tried to turn it over.

So I took it out and nibbled a little bit from it. Wow, it was good! The cheddar and jalapeño, the cilantro, date and sweet potato what a nice mix of flavors. And when I looked back at the plate it was gone.

Omg! I LOVE that you sandwiched cheese in the middle--best kind of burger, by far. This looks much better than the last cheese-stuffed veggie burger I tried--I wadded up a ball of mozzarella and stuffed it inside and it didn't melt very well. I definitely want to give these a go--red quinoa and everything sounds amazing!
