~Butter Bean Burgers~


We made these last night and all liked them except Mckenzie. She said they didn't have much flavor but i didn't put the jalapenos in them because i didn't want them to be to hot for the kids. I liked them. They reminded me and dh of salmon patties. I wouldn't start with this if you are just becoming vegetarian but if your used to eating fake meat and stuff then i think you may like them. You can always add your own special touch to them too. :) We will be making them again soon.


* 1 (15 ounce) can butter beans, drained

* 1 small onion, chopped

* 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño pepper

* 6 saltine crackers, crushed

* 1 egg, beaten

* 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

* 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

* salt and pepper to taste

* 1/4 cup vegetable oil


1. In a medium bowl, mash butter beans.

Mix in onion, jalapeño pepper, crushed crackers, egg, cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Divide into 4 equal parts, and shape into patties.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; use more or less oil to reach 1/4 inch in depth.

Fry patties until golden, about 5 minutes on each side.
