Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F & line a baking sheet with parchment/foil and grease it.
  • Clean and then slice the sweet potato into ¼ inch rounds.  Lay rounds on baking sheet, season with salt and pepper to taste.  Bake for 15ish minutes until the rounds are fork tender but not mushy.
  • While the sweet potato rounds are baking, combine ground lamb, ½ yellow onion, one tablespoon avocado oil, ½ tsp dill, ½ tsp oregano, ½ tsp salt and minced garlic. Form into eight equal size patties. 
  • Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil on medium on a skillet. Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side until cooked all the way through and center of patties reach 165F. 
  • Assemble sliders by starting with one sweet potato round on the bottom, smear with ½ ounce goat cheese (about a tablespoon), add lamb patty, smear with one tablespoon cranberry sauce, and top with another sweet potato round. Repeat until you have eight sliders. 

Notes

*when grocery shopping pick a super fat cylindrical sweet potato that could make nice buns for the sliders!
