How to Make Dana's Super Yummy Spicy Beany and Beef Burger

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse your beans in a mesh strainer with running cold water. Rinse well until the water runs clear. Place your rinsed beans in a large bowl and mash them up with a potato masher. You will have some chunks which is fine.
  2. Crumble your lean beef, (can also use turkey or chicken), add your seasonings. Next either use a spoon or your hands, and mix the burger well. Place about a spoon full of the burger mix in a hamburger press or shape with your hands.
  3. Take 2 slices of the lowest sodium cheese you can find). I used monteray jack. Fold in half and fold in half again to create 2 small squares and place in the center of your burger, top with more burger and seal the seams well. Repeat with the rest of your burger mix.
  4. You can grill them on an outside or inside grill or broil them in the oven. Top with more cheese, this time I used swiss, place in a wholewheat roll, and add your favorite toppings. The spices are super in this and we didn't want to cover up those flavors so we used just a little brown mustard. Enjoy.
  5. I made 6 burgers with this recipe. You can make them smaller or larger. The choice is yours.
  6. Notes: The ground flax seed is a very good source of Omega-3s. I use it on and in just about everything from my salads, soups, stews, eggs, sauces, and ground meats.
