I love the versatility hamburgers hold. Coming up with new ways to make them; ingredients to use; different ethnic influences.....
I have made chicken burgers, turkey burgers, portabella burgers and so on. I tend to stay away from red meat so "regular" hamburgers don’t usually make the cut.
While reading Lindsey's blog I came across a post she did on bean burgers.
I made a few changes from the recipe she used to the ingredients I had at home and to what I like.
I love Guacamole so I took Lindsey's idea of puttign it on this burger
2 C. Beans (I used 1 cup black and 1 cup red)
*Note: I used dry beans and soaked them, I you use canned make sure to rinse well to cut back on sodium)
1/2 C. Oats
1/4C. Pumpkin seeds
1/2C. grated carrots
1/2C. chopped Mushrooms (I use fresh)
1/2C. chopped Onion
2Tbsp. Jalapeño (fresh)
2 Egg whites
2. oz Goat cheese
1/2tsp cayenne pepper
1. Place Oats and Pumpkin seeds into food processor and roughly chop
2. Add all other ingredients into processor EXCEPT: goat chesse, 1C. beans and egg whites.
3.Transfer to a bowl and all other ingrdients
4. Mix. You may need to get your hands dirty for this one loll
5. Make into patties (I got 6 patties out of this recipe)
6. Place in freezer for 30min.
I used parchment paper to seperate the patties
Once they are set you can cook. I used my skillet (med top med high heat)
Make sure to put oil in your pan while it heats up so your burgers dont stick
Cook for about 5 min on one side then flip. I cover the burgers after I flip them to help cook evenly
Now you are ready to eat!!!!!!
I used whole wheat buns and topped with my Grandpa’s homemade spicy mustard, ketchup and some guacamole.As seen on my WIAW8 blog
My all time favorite burger I have made at home was a chicken burger stuffed with gorgonzola and topped with roasted red pepper. mmmm I may have to make that soon!
What is your favorite Burger to make at home?
Ciao and Burger love
