These roasted sweet potatoes are stuffed with all the cheeseburger flavor: browned beef, melty cheese, tons of toppings and my signature house sauce.

If you’ve been around here for the last decade (um, what?!), then you might remember that when I was pregnant with Max, I developed a major distaste for sweet potatoes. 

Thankfully, the distaste has dwindled over the years and let’s just say it may very well be due to THIS recipe.

Yes. This recipe is in it to win it.

Slow roasted sweet potatoes.

Cheeseburger filling with my house sauce, all the melted sharp cheddar and all the toppings. 

I almost called them smashburger sweet potatoes, but there isn’t anything smashed about them. Except that they are SMASHING. 

Why don’t we use that word more often? I adore it.

But anyhoo – all my favorite burger toppings right here, pilled high on the cheesebugher sweet potato.


We all love this! Eddie just about lost his mind when first tried these.

These are so delicious for many reasons.

First, I make my “cheeseburger beef.” I do this with anything cheeseburger-y that I make (tacos, pizza, salad) and it simply means that I stir ketchup and mustard into the ground beef (or turkey) once it is browned. 

This is KEY. Even if someone is a mustard loather, they should not be able to detect the mustard. This is more about making that classic cheeseburger flavor, almost the big mac-ish flavor that really tells you it is a BURGER.

So, now that we’ve got that out of the way… 

Another reason that these are fab is because of the slow roasted sweet potatoes. Super caramelly, soft sweet potato tastes delicious on its own – not to mention when it’s stuffed with other fantastic flavors. 

Once the potatoes roast, I slice them open and top them with the cheeseburger beef. 

Next, I drizzle some house sauce all over the potatoes because this adds another layer of flavor. Don’t add a lot – just a drizzle!

Then, it’s time for some cheese. Sprinkle it all over, then send these babies back into the oven for a quick melt. 

Finally, it’s toppings time. We like shredded lettuce, tomatoes, pickled onions, pickles and more house sauce. 

And dig in! 

These are PHENOMENAL. They have so much flavor. They are incredibly satisfying. Also, they are easy to make!!

Another great thing is that they are perfect for meal prep. You can roast the potatoes, make the beef and even grate the cheese and chop the toppings ahead of time. On a busy weeknight, grab everything out of the fridge and assemble. Heat in the oven until hot and melty and BOOM. Dinner is done.

Also, ideal for lunch, I may add.

Woohoo! I love a dinner that gets me excited.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub the sweet potatoes and poke them each with a fork a few times. Spray or brush with olive oil and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Roast the potatoes for 45 to 55 minutes, until super tender inside. Let cool until easy to touch.
  • While the potatoes roast, heat the beef in a skillet over medium heat. Season all over with salt and pepper.
  • Cook until browned, breaking it apart into small crumbles. Stir in the ketchup and mustard until combined. Turn off the heat and add in a sprinkle of cheese - just an ounce or two. Let the beef cool slightly.
  • When the potatoes are ready, slice them down the center. You can use a fork to gently mash some of the potato inside if you wish. Top each potato with a few spoonfuls of the ground beef (or as much as you want!) and the shredded cheese. Drizzle with the house sauce.
  • Stick the potatoes back in the oven so the cheese can melt, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top with all the toppings! More house sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles and pickled onions. YUM.

  • Whisk all ingredients together until smooth and combined. You can make this a day or so ahead of time!
