And that girls and boys is how glorious things like these are born!
For the "toast/bun":
1. I took my sweet potato serving that was part of my meal plan (6 oz in this case) and I peeled and then thinly sliced lengthwise the FATTEST sweet potato I could find. Think "bun" and you need the surface big enough after it's done in the air fryer to at least to have small "slider" size burgers. Or, a few "finger" sandwiches like I have in the pictures above. You will want them sliced thin, maybe a 1/4 in. thick at most.
2. I then LIGHTLY sprayed them with my avocado oil spray and sprinkled McCormick Grills Chipotle Garlic seasoning on them, along with some coarsely ground sea salt.
3. I cook them in the air fryer, checking often. I flip them halfway through. For my air fryer, this is a total of fewer than 20 minutes, and I cook them on the setting for fresh fries.
For the Sweet Potato Tortilla/Taco Shell
1. I took a sweet potato that I had baked previously, so it was cooked and soft already and weighed out my serving size (6 oz in this case).
2. I took a piece of waxed paper and cut it out just smaller than the basket in my air fryer so that the air could circulate. I piled the soft, cooked sweet potato on the waxed paper and spread it out nice and thin, in a large circle like a tortilla.
3. I then LIGHTLY sprayed the top side with my avocado oil spray and sprinkled McCormick Grills Chipotle Garlic seasoning on it, along with some coarsely ground sea salt.
4. I cooked it in the air fryer, checking often. I flipped it halfway through and when I flipped it I also removed the wax paper. I had it on the paper only because I worried that it would just "goo" through the basket until it was somewhat cooked. For my air fryer, this is a total of fewer than 20 minutes, and I cooked it on the setting for fresh fries.
While the sweet potato cooks I take the serving size of avocado I can have for that meal, and I mash it. (In this case, it was 3 oz)
It will be my "mayonnaise" for my burger or chicken salad sandwich or the "soft and gooeyness" of my taco, to replace cheese and sour cream.
I dice cherry tomatoes, chop lettuce and red onion as well as jalapenos for my toppings of tacos or burgers and use this as the salad mix for my chicken salad.
I take 1- lb of lean meat --- 98% lean--- and prepare the meat the way you'd like. Burger patties, taco meat, diced chicken for a chicken sandwich, whatever. Get creative.
In this pic, I used ground elk for the burger and the taco, which is a fave of mine. For the sandwich, I used chicken breast. Pick from these or ground turkey, whichever you prefer.
Then, I get together my topping for the taco, burger or chicken sandwich, top it, or mix it and ENJOY it.
