Tasty Tuesday ~ Turkey and Black Bean Burgers

We had these tasty burgers the other night, and my kids said they were there favorite ever. They even said, "Thank you for not trying to make something healthy!!....:) ha, ha, ha... the joke is on them. I made the full recipe but it made enough patties to freeze and save for another meal. I served them with sweet potato fries and some grilled zucchini and we enjoyed ourselves a delightful meal.

Ultimate Turkey & Black Bean Burgers

16 ounces cremini mushrooms
1 clove garlic
1/4 yellow onion
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup refried black beans
2 pounds turkey
1 teaspoon sea salt
fresh ground pepper

Place mushrooms, garlic, and onion in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is finely ground. In a large skillet, melt the butter and cook the mushroom mixture until very soft, about 5-7 minutes over medium heat. Transfer the mixture into a large bowl, add the refried black beans, ground turkey, salt, and pepper, and mix all together until very well combined.

Split the mixture into 6 even portions. Roll into balls and flatten into thick burgers. Cook in a skillet or on a barbecue grill until cooked through. Serve on ciabatta buns with your favorite fixin’s. My favorites? Avocado, fresh pico de gallo, a touch of grated cheddar jack cheese, lots of mayo, a kiss of mustard.
