Firecracker Burger

Even those that don't love spice have a good chance of loving this burger! You can tone down the spice with Koops' Yellow Mustard, cheese, or even a little mayo (if you are into that). My mother and father-in-law loved this burger and are not fans of spicy food! If you are scared that this will be too spicy for you, start out by putting less of the hot sauce in the recipe your first time. The next time you make it, you can always add more if it wasn't too hot for you!

  • Baking sheet
  • Knife
  • Skillet
  • Measuring spoons



  • Preheat oven on 425 degrees.
  • Cut sweet potatoes into ½ in chunks and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place in oven and roast for 20 minutes. When the timer is up, check sweet potatoes and if they are not cooked the way through, continue cooking until they are.
  • While potatoes are cooking, place ground meat in bowl with salt and Firecracker Hot Sauce. Wait to mix until sweet potatoes are added so that you don't overwork the ground meat.
  • Let cool for a few minutes, enough to be able to handle them without burning yourself.
  • Measure 1 cup of sweet potatoes and mash with a fork. Add them to the bowl with ground meat and mix ingredients together. Save extra sweet potatoes to serve as a side dish or throw into other meals.
  • Patty out your burgers.
  • Cook on skillet, in oven, or on grill
  • Serve with SunGarden Broccoli and Clover Sprout Blend on top along with your favorite condiments!


  1. If you have spice sensitive people that will be enjoying the meal with you, you can add less hot sauce to the burger and save some for putting on top.
  2. You can mellow out the heat in the burger by adding cheese on top.
  3. Add chopped greens, such as kale or spinach, to the burger recipe for even more nutrients!
