Black Bean Brekkie Sandwich!
Recipe: Black Bean Brekkie Sandwich
Inspired by Homemade Black Bean Burgers on allrecipes.com
For the bean patties:
1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup bread crumbs
For the sandwich:
1 English muffin
2 oz Cheddar cheese (I used Chipotle cheddar from my local co-op. WOW
In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty. Finely chop the onion, garlic, and cilantro. Stir into mashed beans. In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce. Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.
You can bake these in the oven at 375*. Put them on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake 10 minutes per side.
You can also make them on the stovetop. I have a griddle on my stove, and cooked them for roughly 8-10 minutes per side over medium heat.
Melt cheese on top of bean patty. Fry egg to your liking. Top your cheesy bean patty with your egg, put in an English muffin, and devour. Perfect with a cup of coffee!!
Note: If these sound hard, they’re not. I made them in half an hour before I went to work. My first attempt ever at making black bean burgers! Other people on the all.recipes post suggested freezing the patties first to help them stay together more. Try making them the night before!
If you’re just not up for making stuff from scratch, Morningstar makes a decent “mock sausage” patty you could use instead.
