Add some flavor, fiber and nutrition to your burgers by incorporating black beans. Enjoy over a bed of salad greens or sandwich between a whole grain bun with your favorite fixin’s.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 8 Servings
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans (about 1¾ cups beans), rinsed and drained
  • 1 pound ground turkey meat (93 percent lean)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • *Optional ½ cup corn

Add black beans to a large mixing bowl and mash by hand using a potato masher (it’s fine to leave bean chunks throughout). Toss the remaining ingredients into the bowl with the beans and mix thoroughly.

Liberally coat a large skillet with oil spray. Shape mixture into 8 patties and place on the skillet. Mist patty tops with oil spray and sprinkle some kosher salt evenly over the tops. Cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, then gently flip and cook second side for about 4 to 5 minutes (or until the internal temperature reaches 165).

Serve burgers on a whole grain hamburger bun and top with optional lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and a squirt of ketchup and/or mustard.
