Spicy Turkey Burgers In A Sweet Potato Bun

At Fitter Food burgers make a regular appearance. This is simply because they are so easy to make and they taste amazing. We often just make things up with burgers and it always seems to work. This recipe was put together as we fancied a bit of a kick. Give them a try and be sure to make your own creations too.
