Garlic Scape Bacon & Swiss Burger on Sweet Potato "Bun"

Garlic scapes are the new crispy onion rings!! I love frying them and putting them on top of everything, especially burgers! They have a mild garlic flavor and when lightly fried in butter and seasoned with sea salt, they remind me so much of crispy onion rings which makes for the perfect topping to any dish.
