Red Bean Burgers

This recipe was once again a combo of several I have seen around the internet.  I rarely have all the ingredients for one full recipe, or I see something in another recipe that looks good so I tend to patchwork recipes together.  This one was a HIT with the kids.  We all liked it a bunch!

1 can red beans mashed in food processor
1/2 c of minced onions
1/4 c of sunflower seeds buzzed in the food processor
2 T of ketchup
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp  pepper
1 tsp garlic pepper
1 cup oats buzzed in the food processor

Make 6 patties (adding oats if needed for consistency) and place on a cooking stone.  Bake in oven heated to 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Flip burgers over with a spatula and bake for another 10 minutes.

We served them on whole grain bread with all the toppings: onions, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, mayo and lettuce.  It would also be good with a bit spicier base, perhaps adding jalapenos and then adding guacamole on top!


  1. What kind of oats did you use?

    1. I used rolled oats (not instant) :)

  2. sounds delish! what's garlic pepper and where do you get it?
