Try using half of a spare whole-grain hamburger bun in place of the bread slice. These burgers also work with any other canned bean variety. Pile it high with red onion, creamy avocado, and a juicy tomato slice.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place bread in a food processor; pulse 5 times. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 2

Combine onion, garlic, juice, cumin, salt, rind, and beans in processor; pulse 4 to 5 times. Add bean mixture, walnuts, hot sauce, and egg to crumbs; stir well. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 3/4-inch-thick patty.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to pan; reduce heat to medium, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned.

Not bad.  They kind of fell apart a little.  What made them better was bacon.  And I cooked them in the bacon fat vs. the oil.  Seriously though, they were good.  I'd make them again.  I'll double the hot sauce next time.
