I Put My Love on Top Baby

Burger on Salad
I don't think I've ever made them exactly the same but each time I cannot believe just how good black bean burgers taste.  When you get a little crust on the outside, it tastes like a dream meat.  The spice and herbs really pop off in your mouth too.  Plus I like things that you mix in a bowl and use your hands. A pat of butter is essential to coax the magic out of the bean patty.
So instead of the lettuce wrap I just lay them on a giant salad.  This way each hot bite is full of fresh dressed cool crunchy flavor!
For a little extra indulgence and because I had one link left, I chopped and crisped up some mango sausage and melted Swiss cheese on top of the patties.  The simplest meals sometimes can be the most satisfying.
Today's Black Bean Burger:
- 2 cans of black beans drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup of uncooked oatmeal
- 1/4 red onion, chopped
- 2 jalapenos, chopped
- 1/4 cup corn (or whatever leftover vegetable you need to use)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 egg
- handlful of chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon of chipotle sauce
salt and pepper

Mix in a bowl with your hands and form into patties.  Fry on a hot skillet with a pat of butter. until cooked through. 

Sometimes I say I put the burger on the tippy top.
