Sweet Potato White Bean Burgers

So a close friend, a few months ago, told me about sweet potato burgers she had made with her roommate. Over the weeks to follow, I started researching veggie burgers that utilized sweet potato. After a few not so successful attempts, I am ready to pass along my version of a sweet potato burger.
