Ingredients

For Sweet Tomato Dip

  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

 

For Tangy Peach Dip

  • 1 can (15 ounces) peaches in juice, drained
  • 2 teaspoons mustard, yellow or brown
  • 2 teaspoons honey

For Apricot Mayo

  • 1 can (8 ounces) apricot halves, in light syrup
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, light or regular
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the Burgers

  • 1 can (15 ounces) sweet potatoes (or yams) in syrup drained
  • 1 tablespoon canned tomato paste
  • 1 pound ground turkey or lean beef
  • Spray vegetable oil
  • 1 roll (7.5 ounces) refrigerated, lower-fat buttermilk biscuits, baked to package directions

Directions

To make either of the dips or the mayo:  Purée the canned ingredients in a food processor, blender or immersion blender and mix in remaining ingredients; set aside.

To make burgers:  Mash sweet potatoes and tomato paste in medium mixing bowl with a fork.  Mix in the ground turkey or beef until thoroughly blended.  Portion in 1/4-cup portions and form into 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick burgers, about 3-inches across.

Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and spray with oil.  Cook burgers covered until no longer pink inside, about 4 minutes per side. The internal temperature of the patties should be 165°F.

To serve: Split biscuits horizontally and make sandwiches with burgers. Serve dips or mayo for dipping.
