Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Bake sweet potato in the preheated oven until cooked through and soft in the center, 40 to 45 minutes. Let potato cool completely.

  • Peel the potato and mash flesh in a large bowl with black beans. Mix egg, green onions, and garlic into the potato mixture. Add bread crumbs and mix until the mixture sticks together; season with jalapeno pepper, salt, and black pepper. Roll the mixture into 24 small balls and flatten into 2 1/2-inch patties.

  • Arrange patties onto prepared baking sheet. Brush each patty with olive oil.

  • Bake patties in preheated oven until browned on top, 10 to 12 minutes. Turn patties with a thin spatula, brush again with olive oil, and continue baking until slightly crisp along the edges, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve on buns.
