Recipe FAQs

How long does it take to cook sweet potatoes?

It takes about 45 minutes in the oven to cook sweet potatoes, without cutting them. Place potatoes in the oven at 400F for 45 minutes. Check with a fork to make sure they are soft.

Can I replace the white beans to black beans?

Both are great options for  fiber and potassium. White beans tend to provide more calcium compared to black beans. You can switch white beans to black beans, or other way around in most recipes, this one included. Keep in mind the color of the patties will change a little.

Can I make sweet potato patties ahead?

Yes, you can make patties ahead of time. You can prepare them up until you cook them. Keep the patties in the fridge until ready to cook and serve.

    We do lots of bean patty burgers and this is a great way to change up our veggie sandwich game. The sweet potatoes really add another level of flavor here and the seasonings are great. Will be making again
