Ingredients

Directions

  • Shape the bean mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  • Preheat a grill pan or large skillet over medium heat. Add patties to pan or skillet. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through, turning patties once.
  • Serve burgers on buns with mayonnaise, and, if desired, spinach, tomato, and/or red onion.
  • *TIP: To make 1/4 cup soft bread crumbs, place 1/2 slice of whole wheat bread in a blender or food processor and blend or process into coarse crumbs.
