Cheesy Black Bean Burger

Makes 8 Servings


A tasty hamburger with 7 grams of fiber? You bet! Once you try these burgers you may not go back to a traditional all-beef burger again. Top with sliced avocado, tomato, and cucumber for even more veggies!

One 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed 

1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean or higher) 

1 large egg, beaten

1 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese 

1/3 cup seasoned dried bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

8 hamburger buns 

  1. Preheat the grill to high then lower to medium heat.

  2. Place the black beans in a large bowl and mash with the back of a large spoon until smooth but still a bit chunky. Add the beef, egg, cheese, bread crumbs, and garlic powder and mix until well combined.

  3. Divide the beef mixture and shape into 8 patties. Place the patties on the grill and cook until no longer pink inside and an instant-read thermometer registers at least 160°F, about 4 minutes per side.

  4. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite toppings and condiments.
