How to store
These Sweet Potato Burger Patties are one of my favorite meals. You can make them ahead of time.
Prepare the raw mixture for the patties and store it in a large bowl covered with plastic foil in the fridge for up to 1-2 days. You can shape the burger patties right before baking or store them already shaped.
Store cooked patties in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. They are good even cold. You can reheat them in the oven or put them on a medium heated pan for several minutes on each side.
