Turkey Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries

It was not my intention to make such unnecessarily large burgers. I could have made 5 or 6 out of this recipe, as opposed to the 4 ginormous ones I created. They didn’t shrink as much as I thought they would. I’d also like to make more patties next time so the recipe can stretch out over more meals. You can also cook them on the grill but ours is so finicky that I didn’t feel like standing next to it all day making sure they didn’t burn to a crisp. The fries were also great the next day when I turned them into “hash browns” with breakfast. Leftovers love all day long.
