Loaded Burgers & Yam fries


This is a great easy weekend recipe. We’ve been using wood chips in our grill instead of charcoal and it makes everything taste so good!


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 strips all-natural bacon, cooked
  • green leaf lettuce to make the “bun”
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 1/4 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 yams, cut into wedge shapes
  • 4 fried eggs (1 for each burger–as runny as you like them)
  • 1 tsp rosemary, minced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Condiments (I used my mustard aoli which is just 3 egg yolks, 2 tbsp mustard, 1 tbsp minced pickles…whisk it all)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil and roll the yam wedges in the oil with salt, pepper, and rosemary. These will bake for about 30 minutes or until browned. While they bake, fire up the grill and mix meat with salt and pepper and any other seasonings you like, and make patties. 1 lb should make about 4 good sized burgers. Cook the burgers on an uncovered grill until cooked throughout- probably about 7-10 minutes on either side, depending on heat of the grill. I like mine pink on the inside but you can cook them as long as you like. Prepare your lettuce as “buns.” When burgers are done, place them on a lettuce bun and add all the toppings (bacon, onion, mustard aoli, fried egg and avocado) and then place the other side of lettuce on top. Serve with the yam fries with some more mustard aoili. 🙂
