Do you ever try a new recipe and just fall in love? That is what we did with this recipe.  We had them for dinner last week then I made them for lunch one day and I am making them again this week.  :)

I changed the original recipe a bit.

  • 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed and mashed with a fork
  • 3 TBS Dehydrated Organic Onion
  • a healthy shake or two of garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBS chili powder
  • 1 TBS cumin
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs

By reading many of the comments on All Recipes I was able to determine that for one many people were finding the mixture to be too wet or not sticking together.  For this reason I opted to use several dry  ingredients.  I added a second egg per another commenters suggestion and I opted to go with oats instead of bread crumbs, since oats is what I would use for a meatloaf.

I added all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and mixed it together with my hands as if I was making a meatloaf.  Once I had everything well incorporated I divided the mixture 4 ways.  Then formed each patty just like I would a regular hamburger patty.  I cooked the patties in skillet on medium (you may need to go lower if your stove cooks really hot) with a little organic safflower oil in it.  I cooked 4 minutes on one side then flipped and 4 on the next then flipped followed by 2 minutes and 2 minutes.
I served these nice sized burgers on toasted bread and topped it with a teeny bit of mayo that had been mixed with hot sauce.  We also had orange wedges and baked homemade fries.
I will tell you that the spices on this first run were not enough for us.  We still enjoyed them but thought they needed to be spicier.  So when I made them the second time I used the above ingredients plus a sprinkle of salt, pepper, seasoned salt and a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce…..they were delicious!
These would be great to play around with whatever seasonings you happen to really like!
