Paleo Burger and Sweet Potato Fries

I know I have said it before.... but there is NOTHING like a good burger!!! I made extra for lunches, too. We are in busy prep mode for the holidays, so quick dinners and lunches are a key for staying on track and maintaining good Paleo options in the house!
I have this nifty little slicer that gives my sweet potatoes a scalloped edge; so they look like fancy fries! I sliced one medium sweet potato, and tossed it with about a tsp of olive oil, sprinkled with a little sea salt, black pepper, and paprika... then baked at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Okay, now for the burgers...
I used ground pork (about 2 lbs)
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried minced onion
1 tsp italian seasoning
2 tsp flax seed oil
2 tsp toasted flax seeds

Form burgers, I use the palm of my hand as a guide for size, (slightly bigger) and grill to desired doneness! Use romaine lettuce leaves to wrap the burgers and stone ground mustard as a condiment, as well as some sliced tomatoes. Serve with a side salad, too. I doubled the recipe so that we would have extra for lunches. It really hit the spot! Hope you enjoy!

This looks entirely too good. I am going to have to ask that you cease from posting these yummy pictures. My keyboard has shorted out!
