Paleo Patty Melt & Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I haven't had bread in over 3 months, and decided I would give one of Elana's Pantry paleo friendly recipes a whirl to make into a patty melt with the grass fed burger meat & raw grass fed chive cheddar cheese w/ Baked Sweet Potato Fries.

Step 1: Make the bread ahead of time.  I followed the recipe exactly as directed, but ended up having to cook my bread an additional 10-15 min over the recommended 30 min.  Here is a link to the recipe if you are inclined to try it.

Step 2: Cook 1 slice of pasture raised bacon at 400F for 20 min & Set Aside for Patty Melt

Step 3: Chef up Sweet Potato Fries in Oven

1 Organic Sweet Potato - Sliced as shown in photo below
1/4t Fresh Ground Black Pepper (optional)
1/2t Celtic Sea Salt
1 Sprig Fresh Rosemary
1/4t Ground Chipotle Pepper (optional)
1/2t Cracked Red Pepper (optional)
1T Melted Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil


  • Preheat oven to 425F
  • Toss all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl - ensure all ingredients are coated as photo shows below.

  • Place on baking dish and cook for 30-40 min.  
  • Check on Fries 15 min into cooking and flip to other side
  • Remove from oven and Serve once both sides of the sweet potato fries have some crunch to them as shown in photo below.
Step 4: Cook Grass Fed Burger Patty

1/4 Grass Fed Burger - Made into 1inch thick patty
1t Italian Seasonings
1/4t Celtic Sea Salt
1/4t Black Pepper
1/4t Coconut Oil
Raw Grass Fed Chive Cheddar Cheese (optional)

  • Once burger is made into patty coat each side with italian seasonings, black pepper & sea salt
  • Put cast iron griddle over medium heat & add 1/4t coconut oil - once melted it is ready to add patty
  • Add patty cook over medium heat for 5 min & flip and cook for another 5 min

  • Cut 2 thin slices of your Paleo Bread & 1oz of your grass fed cheese of choice(optional)
  • Put 1/2t grass fed ghee onto griddle
  • Turn heat down to low - Place a piece of bread down on the butter - add cheese, bacon broken up, burger, cheese & bread to form your sandwich - Be careful not to burn the bread 
  • Cook each side for a few min until lightly toasted and cheese is melted as shown in photo below.
  • Enjoy!
