Cindy sent me this idea and I took it and ran! It just sounded SO good!
Experimenting 3 times, I’ve finally settled on this combination of ingredients and technique. The result is a tasty, meaty, light burger!
Of course no one else in my family will ever know how good they are. I had the Little Guy MILDLY interested in them, but he decided on a hot dog instead as did the husband.
Oh well. I loved them and now I have leftovers at my disposal. :)
- 1 15oz can of Black Beans drained and rinsed
- 8oz 99% lean ground turkey
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats (40g)
- 1 small green bell pepper diced
- 1 batch of Taco Seasoning (click here for recipe)
Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Combine with your hands, working to squish some of the beans, but also keeping some whole.
Form into 5 patties. The mix will be sticky, spray the plate with non-stick cooking spray so they are easy to remove from the plate.
Grill about 5 minutes a side over medium flame.
I served mine with a grilled slice of vidalia onion, 2 slices of grilled zucchini, and tomato on a sandwich thin. It was awesome!
