Wow! Made these for dinner after my 15 yr old's football game. I prepped the patties earlier in the day so they could set in the fridge while I went to the game (and so my people were not aware of what I was "hiding" in the burgers). I added shredded zucchini (salted to pull out water) and a bit of balsamic vinegar. I had no problem with the patties holding together, I think because I chilled them for a few hours before shaping the patties. I sprayed a pan with canola oil and cooked on medium for about 4 min per side. You should realize that I live in a house with 4 males who love their beef burgers. My 12 yr old no longer will eat beef burgers, my VERY picky dad said they were decent (from him, that is a HUGE compliment!), my husband called his sister to tell her about them and posted notes on his Facebook. The best part is my 15 yr old, who I have to wrestle with to eat anything that is good for him, ate 2 of them! I didn't tell him what he was eating until he was finished his 1st and was telling me he liked the "flame-broiled" taste, which he thought was just a different cooking method. He just curled his nose and then asked for a 2nd. If you want to keep the Beefy texture do not process the beans as noted in some of the comments. These are a bit mushy if you reheat in the microwave, but do well reheating on the stove.
