A good start...I added some minced fresh garlic (instead of garlic salt), lime juice, and chopped fresh cilantro, sprinkled with regular salt and pepper and cut back on the cumin a bit...served in toasted pitas with lettuce, tomato, guacamole, and chili sauce instead of ketchup. You might try adding a bit more flour or cornmeal if the mixture seems too wet (my modifications added some liquid). I also used an indoor Foreman grill.

Don't make this if you want a burger experience. The burger did not stick together and made a mess on the grill. I ended up making bean burritos out of this recipe.

Very tasty. Probably the best homemade black bean burger recipe I've ever eaten. However, I think it is the corn meal, but something amplifies the power of the bean on ones digestive system and everyone was suffering all night with its effects. OK for family, don't torture guests!

I added one egg to this recipe so that it would stick together better. I have tried several black bean burger recipes and this was the best I have found!

Great recipe! These tasted excellent, stayed together when grilling. I also froze some of the leftover grilled burgers with a seal a meal. We had the burgers in a bun with onion, lettuce and condiments. I would highly recommend this recipe....heart healthy too!

I fried these on a non-stick griddle, and didn't have any problems with them falling apart. I will probably add more garlic when I make them again. They're delicious!

I've had black bean burgers in the past and this recipe was the best!! I made the burgers for fourth of July and they were a hit! However to keep the burgers from falling through the grill I used a grilling mat with holes in it over the grill!! The burgers turned out great!!!

Using my propane grill, I made a pile of these Black Bean Burgers, and they were a huge hit! Gone forever are the days of the simple ground beef patty. I served them with out buns and sides of beans, broccoli, and avocado for a low card feast.
