Well hello there, you beautiful son of a b. I need to apologize for this post going up about 8 or so hours later than it usually does. The blog needed some updating and with updates comes issues. And learning a new skill. Which I suck at. I can work a skillet, but not a skill. You probably won’t even notice this update, but it’s pretty neat. Just trust me, ok!?! This relationship is all about trust. I mean, you are welcoming me into your kitchen, and all.

Sooooo I feel like I enjoyed the long weekend a little TOO much. It was 4 billion degrees out and one day it was incredibly smoky and hazy from the fires in Oregon and California, so going outside just wasn’t happening. So instead, I ate. I got all sorts of candied peanuts while in Boise and I need to get those b*tches out of my house. They are so damn addicting! I can’t stop. My husband even had the genius idea of putting them into our coconut milk ice cream while we watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2. When he said that, I fell in love with him even more. Everyone has a love language and I guess mine is candied peanuts in chocolate caramel coconut milk ice cream language. I should write a new Love Language book and spread my knowledge to the world.

Speaking of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, I’m obsessed. I thought the first movie was the best ever but the second one topped it. Especially since the intro is baby groot dancing. From now on, if I’m ever in a bad mood, I plan to watch that movie to simply giggle over baby groot. I want him as my pet. No, scratch that, I want him as my best friend. He’s such a gem. Whoever thought him up and created that adorable creature deserves a metal. They probably speak a beautiful love language.

You know what I’m quite devastated about? Chris Pratt and Anna Faris being broken up. Cassy and I chatted all about how much we love them as a couple on my most recent podcast and everyone made sure to let me know that they are donezo. Why can’t any adorable famous couple make it?! Funny people should always be able to make it work. But no. Their PraFaris life is done. RIP Chranna.

You wanna see my dog Jackson in his element, being all adorable and ish?! Watch him here. I recently filmed this video with the awesome people at Well + Good and it was the best two days of his life. At one point, I did have to pour water on him and stick him under the air conditioning vent in my car to keep him from passing out, but other than that part, best two days of his life. I could watch this video 4 billion times just to watch him roll around with a GoPro strapped to his back. That guy.

Ok, I need to excuse myself. I just saw a commercial for the movie IT and I’m scarred. Why do scary movies have to be a thing!? I’m going to have nightmares for weeks now.

Chimichurri Loaded Sliders

  • Author: juli
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 8 sliders 1x


  • 1 large sweet potato, cut in 1/2 inch rounds (you will want 8 rounds)
  • melted ghee
  • salt, to taste

For the chimichurri mayo:

  • 1 packed cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 packed cup fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 white onion, minced
  • juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/3 cup mayo

For the sliders:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the toppings:

  • mayo
  • butter lettuce
  • red onion, sliced
  • sweet peppers, sliced
  • jalapenos, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place sweet potato rounds on top and brush ghee on both sides. Sprinkle with salt. Place in oven to bake for 18-20 minutes, flipping half way through to cook evenly on both sides.
  2. While the sweet potatoes bake, make the chimichurri: place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Place in a bowl and whisk together chimichurri and 1/3 cup mayo until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredient for the sliders and make into 8 balls. Flatten out slightly and press thumb into the middle of each slider. This will keep the slider from rising while cooking.
  4. Heat up and grease grill or grill pan to medium heat. Cook sliders for 5-6 minutes per side.
  5. Place a bit of mayo on top of each sweet potato round, then butter lettuce, a slider, the chimichurri mayo, sweet peppers and jalapeno! That’s it! Eat up, you cutie pie!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. These look great! I have a question about butter lettuce…I have never heard of it or seen it until recently. I just saw Tessemae’s brand in my local store, and then you have started talking about it. What’s the deal? Do the roots help it stay fresh longer? What other kind of lettuce can you compare the taste to? Thank you!!!

  2. Just wanted you to know that i watch both your instagram and read your blog! I was checking here yesterday for a recipe then I caught your story, and I wanted you to know some of us are still old school and go back to the website. Also I noticed that on the recipe there is now a shopping list! Not sure if there is more updates but I did notice that 🙂

    1. thanks maria!! love when people come here because those are the people i make sure to always respond to! thanks for being old school!! and thanks for noticing the little details. still updating some things!

  3. Hey Juli,

    Could that little man of yours BE any cuter…OMG. Thanks for sharing this and showing him off as he does his daily thing!!! Hugs to him and you also of course!!!

  4. Question: does the chimichurri mayo keep for a few days? Maybe if I keep the chimichurri separate from the mayo and mix before serving? Thanks in advance!

  5. Oh. My. Goodness. I made these yesterday. I have to admit I considered skipping the sweet potatoes, but I had a few to use up, and I am SO glad I got to taste the recipe just as you intended it. The sweet potato was the perfect compliment to all the other flavors – SO GOOD! I will make this recipe again and again and again (I didn’t hide the leftovers well enough, and my two teenage sons put them in their lunches for school today. Grr.) I honestly think I would be in food heaven eating any of the components of this recipe separately, but together they make me do my food happy dance. 🙂

  6. Another great recipe! I ended up making full sized burgers (because it just felt easier after a long day) but it was still a great recipe!

    My boyfriend, not as adventurous as I in trying new things LOVED the chimicurri mayo! And cleared his plate so I say huge success.

    This morning I used the leftover sweet potato and chimicurri with an egg on top and it was awesome!

    Thanks for all the great recipes 🙂

  7. I stashed this recipe away until now. Boy I wish I had tried it sooner. Wow! It’s seriously one of the best new recipes I’ve tried in years! That sauce…OMG. So many possibilities on other recipes. Every flavor in this was amazing – thank you! You really have a great sense of spices and flavor combinations. Overall I only changed a few things – smoked paprika instead of regular, slightly thinner sweet potatoes, and provolone daiya instead of mayo under the slider. My meat turned out slightly tough – I’m still learning how to cook with grass-fed beef. Any tips?
