Review: Alexia’s Sweet Potato Rolls with Apple Maple Turkey Sliders & Giveaway

by Erin

I know I have been slacking on the Superbowl recipe sharing this week so I am here to make it up to you with some awesome sliders and a giveaway (at the end of this post)!

Potato rolls and bread have always been a favorite of mine, so when I found out Alexia had sweet potato rolls I jumped on the opportunity to review them. And decided to make sliders out of one of my favorite burger recipes.

Alexia Sweet Potato Rolls

Normally I would serve these with sweet potato fries, but decided to change it up with the sweet potato buns and then served with some of Alexia’s Oven Reds instead. I think these buns were made for these sliders, and may not return to regular buns. The turkey sliders are mixed with applesauce, maple syrup, and crumbled bacon, and then topped off with a maple-dijon sauce that I made with Greek yogurt (instead of mayo in the original recipe I posted). The sweet potato roll is like a happy little hug around all that flavor, but still holds it own. If there hadn’t been the exact amount of sliders per roll, I may have eaten a roll by itself! Which means I now have to go out and buy more so I can do just that.

Apple Maple Turkey Sliders

One year ago: Superbowl XLVI Recipe Roundup

Two years ago: Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies


Makes 8 sliders


1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt ( I used 0% Chobani)

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp real maple syrup, divided

1-1/4 pounds ground turkey breast

1/4 cup cooked, crumbled bacon

1/2 cup chunky applesauce

1 tsp poultry seasoning

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1 bag (8 rolls) frozen Alexia Sweet Potato Rolls

Desired slider toppings


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake buns as directed on the package.
  2. Meanwhile, set up grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking (I used a stovetop cast iron grill pan).
  3. For Maple-Dijon Sauce: In a small bowl, stir to combine Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, and 1/4 cup maple syrup; set aside.
  4. For Turkey Burgers: In a medium bowl, mix together ground turkey, bacon, applesauce, poultry seasoning, 2 Tbsp maple syrup, and salt & pepper. Wet hands to prevent sticking and shape into 8 small patties.
  5. Place burgers on hot grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until done. Serve on sliced sweet potato buns with condiments and a dollop of maple-Dijon sauce.

I would love to try Alexia’s Hashed Browns. I frequently cook potatoes, and I try to mix it up so it doesn’t get boring, but hash browns have always seemed like too much work. Having a good pre-made option would be great!
