Black bean burger.
This is a first for me.
I had never eaten a bean burger before.
I love a good 'ole hamburger.
I didn't make this to stray away, I simply wanted to try something different.
Pretty good, I must say...
I mashed up the beans and added an onion.
Some bread crumbs, salt, pepper, dried parsley, and a farm fresh egg round out the ingredients.
Make the patties to the desired shape you want.
They do not shrink up like a beef burger does.
I cooked them in some butter for a little extra flavor.
You can doctor them up how ever you want.
Cheese. Mayonnaise. Lettuce. Mustard. Ketchup. Pickles. Tomato.
Black Bean Burger
2 cans black beans, drained
1 onion, diced
1 cup bread crumbs
salt, pepper, and dried parsley to taste
In a bowl add the two cans of drained black beans.
Mash with a fork, leaving some beans visible.
Add the onion, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper and dried parsley.
Stir all together.
Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Form the bean mixture into patties. (The patties will not shrink like beef patties do.)
Fry the patties 5 minutes per side, or until heated through.
Eat plain or on a bun piled high with your favorite condiments.
