I made some adjustments based on the reviews I read but really liked this recipe. I used half a red onion as that is what I had on hand as well as some canned jalapenos rather than fresh. I also added 1 Tbsp cayenne, chili powder and oregano as well as some cilantro paste (about 2 tsp). I put everything including the spices, onion/garlic mixture, potatoes and black beans into a large bowl and used a immersion blender to combine. Despite some reviews, I only used 1 egg and 1/2 cup of panko and felt that the texture was very good and not dry like other black bean burgers I've made. I used a little less than a half cup of mix per cake and still came out with 12 rather than 8 which is fine as I'll freeze for lunches etc. I used my broiler as the recipe stated. The cook times seemed accurate though I recommend using the full 10 minutes for the first side to make sure everything sets before flipping. They weren't as crispy as I thought they were going to be but I like that they don't use a lot of oil to cook. Also, just as a tip, I used a small food processor to grate/shred the sweet potato as well as chop up the onion which was very helpful in making this a quicker meal. I used plain greek yogurt with lime juice and zest rather than the above sour cream mix since I spiced up my burgers. Thanks for the recipe and helpful reviews!
