Reuben Burger

Linda Griffith


This recipe is for a bean burger that is loaded with fiber and Protein. It tastes much better than it sounds. I have been buying them for years in the Bocca brand but had never made them before. They are much healthier than our ground beef ones.

How to Make Reuben Burger

  2. Warm buns in a 300 degree oven for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile heat oil in a large skillet; add patties and cook, turning only once until a crispy brown crust forms on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Top burgers with cheese slices, cover and turn heat to low until cheese melts. Spread into of each roll with the sauce. Set burger on bun bottoms and top with sauerkraut. Place on the top and enjoy.
