Hungry for a paleo burger? Try these savory and quick appetizers, which can give you a satisfying burger experience without all of the unnecessary carbs.

While I typically recommend limiting starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, they’re lower on the glycemic index than their white counterpart and higher in fiber as well! In moderation, they can be a great treat which can help you stick to a paleo diet!


  • 1 sweet potato, sliced into 1 inch thick rounds
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • Pico de gallo (diced white onions, diced tomato and cilantro)


Preheat oven to 375F. Add sliced sweet potato to a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until soft. In a bowl, mix together beef, egg, salt, and onion powder. Form small beef patties and heat in a skillet until brown on both sides. Add to your sweet potato slices then top with avocado and pico de gallo.
