At what temperature do you bake it at for the 10 mins?
At what temperature do you bake them.
You never specified if the ingredients were cooked before hand or not. I soaked my beans over night, and during the day, but when the time came to mash them, they were still too firm. I think it would be good to edit this post to specify whether or not your ingredients are raw or cooked, or come from fresh or a can.
I apologize. Definitely from a can. Not cooked beforehand.

I have been meaning to comment again and tell you how much I love these burgers. I’m definitely a meat and potatoes kind of girl, so I was skeptical. But, I love them and so does the whole family. Making them for dinner tonight.
I’m so glad you love these, Brenna! I’m definitely the same way — usually, the more meat, the better (haha.) But I really enjoy them. I think you might like the new version I have, with sweet potatoes. Glad your whole family enjoys these though (Jack is not a big fan)

this is a wonderful bean burger recipe!! My husband likes it too. He wasn’t going to try them at first because he ate the store bought ones and didn’t like them. We ate them with feta cheese and mayo on a sandwich. The dog even had a bite and thought they were delicious!!
I’m so glad you loved it!
Good read. Black bean patty seems like a good alternative for the regular meat patties. Thanks for posting.
I have been trying to get up the nerve to try these for a while. I struggle with the same thing, love of meat and a grocery budget. 🙂 can’t wait to try this recipe.

This sounds great! Hamburger meat is expensive and I have plenty of cans of black beans and wonder what to do with them. I’m pinning this and will give it a try!

Aww! Black bean veggie burgers were the first vegetarian recipe I attempted, so they have a special place in my heart. Plus, the hubby loves them! Glad you enjoyed them too!
