Sweet Spud Sliders [makes 34 sliders]
Note: patties can be made and baked in advance, then left in the refrigerator for up to a week to be skillet crisped and served at your convenience.

1 large (2 pound) sweet potato, peeled
1 medium sweet yellow onion, peeled
1 ¼ cups rolled oats
4 cloves garlic, peeled
2 cans (15 ounces each) cannellini beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed
½ cup almond flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
34 slider sized hamburger buns

In a food processor fitted with a grater attachment (or using a handheld box-grater), finely grate sweet potato and onion. Transfer to a large bowl and clean food processor.

In now cleaned food processor, fitted with an S blade, process oats, garlic, cannellini beans, and almond flour until very smooth. Scoop into large bowl with sweet potato mixture, and then add salt and pepper. Using your hands, thoroughly combine. Form mixture into 34 even balls (I used an ice cream scooper), and then flatten until about 1 inch thick patties.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease with olive oil. Bake patties for 20 minutes. Because of quantity, you may need to cook patties in a number of batches.

Preheat ¼ teaspoon olive oil per patty over medium-high heat in a non-stick skillet. Add desired patties to pan and cook for 2 minutes. Gently flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and then repeat for the remaining patties. Serve with slider buns, topped with your favorite condiments & stick a party pick in it!
