One of the things I still find myself missing after switching to a primarily vegetarian diet is cheese burgers. I LOVE cheese burgers. I’ve tried a lot of meatless/plant-based alternatives like the Beyond and Impossible burgers hoping to satiate that craving, but they all fell short. Instead of trying to mimic the taste of a real burger, I wanted to try to make something different, but equally as delicious.

Instructions
  1. Pour Black Beans into a bowl and mash them. I used the bottom of a glass for mashing.
  2. Beat the egg, then pour into the mashed black beans.
  3. Add panko bread crumbs, salsa, garlic, and cheese to the black beans. Mix well.
  4. Make 4 patties.
  5. If pan frying, heat 2 tbsps of oil over medium heat. Cook patties on each side for about 3-5 minutes or until internal temperature reads 160.
  6. If air frying, set your air fryer to 370 degrees. Cook on each side for 6 minutes. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in 2 batches.
  7. Serve on Brioche Buns (or whatever buns you prefer).
Recipe Notes

 We topped ours with guacamole, sliced tomato, and onion. Get creative with the toppings and enjoy!
