This Paleo Avocado Bacon Sliders recipe will rekindle your love of burgers! Creamy avocado and crisp bacon make them special and flavorful!



  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 lb bacon
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 tbsp ime juice
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Wash the sweet potato and cut into ½ inch slices.

  3. Line two baking sheets with foil or parchment paper, lightly coat one with olive oil or fat of choice and lay out the sweet potato slices. You will need 12 slices. Lay out the bacon on the other sheet.
  4. Bake both for 20−25 minutes. Flip the bacon and sweet potatoes halfway through. While the sweet potatoes and bacon cook prepare the burgers, bell pepper and onions, and smash the avocado.
  5. In a medium bowl combine the ground beef, minced garlic, salt and pepper and form into six patties.
  6. Heat olive oil or fat of choice in a large skillet over medium heat and add the patties. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side.
  7. Heat olive oil or fat of choice in a separate small skillet over medium heat and cook the bell pepper and onions until soft and slightly charred.
  8. In a medium bowl smash together the avocado and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Assemble each slider by topping a sweet potato slice with lettuce, a burger patty, bacon, smashed avocado, bell pepper and onions and another sweet potato slice.

  1. I made this tonight with four slight modifications: removed red bell pepper and bacon, tossed some cut grape tomatoes and artichoke hearts in with the onions, and used pork instead of beef. Absolutely delicious, thank you sharing this recipe!

  2. These are absolutely delicious! We didn’t add lettuce (as to make it even more of a comfort food!) 🙂

  3. I am on day 4 of The Whole30 and craving all the food. Not only is this recipe delicious, but it helped curb my sugar craving (a little).

  4. I traded out ground beef for mixed beef and pork (because beef is really expensive where I live), and grilled the bacon and sweet potatoes in a skillet instead of baking them. Best burger I’ve ever eaten!

  5. I was lazy (and my grocery store didn’t have the grass fed beef I wanted) so I used pre-made grass fed burgers but topped them with carmelized onions and peppers, guac, tomatoes, and the sweet potato ‘bun’. I was even too lazy to make bacon!!!! But they came out great, thank you for the idea!!

  6. These were really great. I was surprised at how well the sweet potatoes worked as buns. They required a little more effort holding the burger together while you bit into it, but boy was that a delicious mess. Plus, I didn’t have to make sweet potato fries separately. They were built in! The sweet potato flavor didn’t interfere with the burger at all. I usually like a potato bread bun, with that hint of sweetness, but the sweet potato had that and more. Thank you again! No more bread-related discomfort associated with burgers!
