Black Bean Burgers and Homemade Refried Black Beans from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond

I appreciate the fact that Ree did these burgers on her show. I'm vegetarian and these looked incredible. I will definitely make them and I wanted to post the recipe on my blog for others to have.
This recipe makes one large or tow small burgers.

2 C  canned Black Beans, drained and mashed with a fork. I'll post her recipe for homemade refried Black Beans at the end. You can use them in this recipe or canned Black Beans.
1 C Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1.4 C  grated Onion
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1 Egg
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.
Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil for frying.


In a mixing bowl:
Beans
Breadcrumbs
Onion
Chili Powder
Egg
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Form the mixture into 1 large, or 2 small patties.
Preheat a grill pan on medium high heat.
Brush it with oil and cook the burger for 4 minutes on each side.

Homemade Refried Black Beans:

1 pound of Dried Black Beans, soaked overnight in cold water.
4 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 large onion, diced
1/2 tsp Cumin
Salt and Pepper, to taste.
1 TBS Butter

Drain the beans and add them to a stock pot.
Cover with two inches of water.
Add:
Garlic
Onion
Cumin
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Simmer until the beans are tender and the liquid has turned into a thick sauce, about 11/2 - 2 hours.
Melt Butter in a skillet and add the beans.
Mash them, leaving some texture and cook on medium heat for 3 - 4 minutes.
Use these beans in the bean burger recipe or canned black beans and follow the directions for the burgers.

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
