Sweet Potato Burgers and Home Made Fries

This week's new recipe is the delicious sweet potato burger from How Sweet It Is This yummy vegetarian burger is flavoursome and very fresh tasting! Perfect with homemade fries (recipe below). I really enjoyed making it and am very pleased that I have a second burger in the fridge to have tomorrow!

Speed - **** (burger took as long as fries took to cook)
Taste **** (very yummy!)
Repeat? Yes :)
