Amy’s Beet Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries

Let me start by saying, I am not a big fan of beets. But I have to say, after cooking a few recipes with beets, I don’t think I can say that I do not like beets anymore. I guess when they are cooked right, I do like them Sam I Am! This recipe came from a good friend. We tried them and loved them! We think you will, too! (Oh, they are even better leftover the next day for lunch!)
