Burgers on the grill will forever be one of my favorite dinners, especially in the summer!  But pair a burger with a sweet potato bun and now you’re talking.  I will dare say… a sweet potato bun now trumps a gluten free bun in my book.  They just elevate the flavor of the burger so much.  I decided to top these sliders with some homemade guacamole (no surprise there) but feel free to add some caramelized onions, mushrooms, whatever your jam is.  These are super fun to make and eat!
