Beef and Black Bean Burgers

These little burgers were SO yummy! This is a great recipe to make your beef stretch. And the black beans add some extra fiber.

I actually made my little burgers with elk meat, but of course beef would be equally great(or more great depending on your taste:)). I have a freezer full of buffalo, elk and I use wild game in most of my recipes. I do occasionally buy beef if I am cooking for someone other than my family. My husband is a hunter, so we are always well supplied with red meat.

I thought I took several pictures of these little burgers, but only had a couple. I was in a hurry to get these to the family and the battery on my camera was almost dead. We will be eating these again soon, so I'll try again:) Sorry this one is SO blurry!

Beef and Black Bean Burgers


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed, drained and slightly mashed
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated onion

  • Your favorite burger toppings

Directions: Mix first 6 ingredients together. Form into patties and grill. Place the patties on the buns and top with your favorite burger toppings. Makes ~5-6 servings
