Black Bean Cheeseburgers

Is anyone else struggling to get back on the healthy eating wagon after all the indulgent holiday treats? I actually did pretty well with sticking to healthy choices until I made my annual batch of vanilla bean caramels, and couldn’t stop snacking on them. With the new year, though, I am recommitting myself to healthy eating, and these black bean cheeseburgers are a great place to start. They’re super quick and easy to make, ready in about twenty minutes, and so delicious the whole family will love them!

You’ll start by adding some refried black beans, egg, bread crumbs, seasonings, and shredded cheese to a bowl, and mixing to combine.

Adding cheese is the best part! I suppose if you wanted them to be a little healthier, you could leave out the cheese, but I love cheese too much to ever leave it out. 🙂
