There were a HUGE hit with my family. Even with my picky 14 year old! They were glad there were extras so they can have them for lunch tomorrow.
They did take quite a bit of prep, but all the steps were worth it. (It will probably go faster next time I make them.)
I made them exactly as the recipe called for, except that I used cornbread stuffing since that is what I had.
This one is a KEEPER!!!
the burgers were great but the recipe was a little too complicated for my tastes
hey...lol...you stole my family recipe!! I always have soaked cooked beans on hand. Soak them in slowcooker and then just turn on in am. Everything goes in food processer at night. I don't usually "bread" them with cornmeal though. Just flour or breadcrumbs.
Also I spice it myself with ordinary "panko" type bread crumbs. Oh anything handy. lol
Panko bread crumbs are just stale white bread grated on box grater large holes. I am a miser and learned that one long ago.
Four stars cause of changes. But hey folks it's easier than it looks
They were really tasty. My carnivorous boyfriend declared that this recipe was a keeper. They were time consuming, but as long as you know what you're in for, it's not too bad. The recipe is a bit big and not easily scaled down, but thankfully nothing has to be exact.
I really enjoyed this recipe. It does take a quite a bit of work so if you're lazy in the kitchen..move on, lol. It does make a lot however so all that work pays off when you easily pull out leftovers from the freezer! I only made a couple changes, I doubled the garlic powder and hot sauce, and instead of corn meal I used bread crumbs I made from some old rye bread, also I fried in peanut oil (vegetable oil is not good for you!) The whole fam really enjoyed these, husband was pleasantly surprised, 10 yr old asked for seconds and 7 yr old was happy that no animals were harmed in the making of these burgers!! I will def make these again and might increase the spices a little more. Thank you Eveningstar24!!! **** Update: Just made these again from the leftovers in the freezer. We put them whole wheat wraps with lettuce, onion, cheese and the authentic thousand island dressing from this site, Best ever! We have dubbed them Big Mac Bean Wraps. Introduced this to some newcomers and it was a huge hit with them as well. Am now making more as my left overs are gone. I'm actually making a double batch because it's so handy in the freezer! I store it in an old sour cream 16oz containers and each one is enough to make burgers for 5. Might try a bbq sauce ensemble next...
I thought these were awful--and waaaay too hard to make.
I made this, but subbed black beans for northern beans and cumin for liquid smoke. So, the flavor was different, I will speak for the consistency. It was good and both of my picky eaters aged 2 and 4 enjoyed it. If you are concerned about sodium, I would sub your own spices for the seasoned stuffing mix and be sure to rinse the beans before you let them drain to get rid of any extra starch. Your stomach will thank you later. I have seen other recipes where they didn't process or blend the beans, and they just fell apart.
Inexpensive and relatively easy for how much it makes. The flavor was mild but not plain -- just right with some ketchup and tomatoes on top! I made Belle's Hamburger Buns to go with these, but the burgers are so filling we could have eaten them on their own without the buns.
