This might be crazy, but it DOES taste crazy good. I had this idea and had even jotted it down, so I wouldn't forget to try it, and after months of passing the note, I dove in, and thank goodness. This is a super fun appetizer or addition to the finger food table at Thanksgiving dinner.
Essentially, it's a mini, double sandwich- two sweet potato and cranberry sandwich's, sandwiched around a piece of EPIC's Turkey Almond Cranberry jerky bar. Crazy, right? Trust me, it works.
First you will need to make a cranberry sauce (if you already have a batch for something else, perfect, because you only need a few tbsp for this.) I whipped up a batch very quickly by combining 1/2 cup of fresh cranberries and 1/4 cup of water in a pan, and brought to a boil, crushing the berries, adding 1 tbsp coconut sugar, and reducing until a thick relish consistency is reached. This will be tart, but adds a nice dimension.
Now, for the "buns". Preheat your oven to 350. In a food processor, rice 1/3 sweet potato until very finely chopped (about 3 oz).
Next, grease a piece of parchment paper, or heavily grease a baking sheet and flatten mixture, rolling with a glass to make sure you have the same consistency across the entirety of the batter. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through. until baked through.
When this is done, let cool and begin to cut. A pizza slicer will make this very easy.
Cut once down the middle horizontally, then cut 2 times vertically, giving you 6 pieces.
Spread a tablespoon of the relish on one side, take the plain side and lay on top, then cut these in half vertical and horizontal, making 12 smaller "sandwiches"
Cut an Epic Turkey Cranberry Bar into 6 pieces, and add a sandwich above and below it, securing with a toothpick.
I promise these might quickly become your favorite new snack. It's a little savory, a little sweet, and a really fun way to make primal food, holiday friendly.
