  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Bake sweet potato in the preheated oven until cooked through and soft in the center, 40 to 45 minutes. Let potato cool completely.
  3. 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.
  4. Arrange patties onto prepared baking sheet. Brush each patty with olive oil.
  5. 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.

The recipe came out great on the first try. I used the pickled jalapenio slices instead of fresh which worked great. Next time I will add some cumin and use only 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs.
