These butter bean burgers make a great and easy alternative to meat in burgers or as part of a bigger meal. I like to serve mine with mashed potatoes and vegetables.
Made these last night; good and easy. I processed the beans along with the garlic and chilli and salt and pepper - then put that in a bowl and mixed in the other ingredients. They cooked up well and held together fine - we ate them with some stir fried silverbeet - 07 Feb 2011
Wow, this was amazing!!! I did change quite a bit of things though... I cannot have gluten, so I omitted the saltine crackers and used crushed GF cornflakes instead. Also, we didn't have any butter beans so I used an equivalent amount of cooked, mashed lentils instead. After trying it both ways (lentils vs. butter beans) everyone liked the lentils much better! I also added a little diced green pepper and that REALLY enhanced the flavor, and I omitted the jalapeno pepper (don't like spice). I make this recipe ALL THE TIME, and we never get tired of it!!!!!!!!!!! - 28 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a fabulous recipe. It can get a little messy when cooking, as it's not "binded" well with crackers, so i now use fresh italian breadcrumbs, instead. You can also dip it in cornmeal if you want a bit of a crunchy outside. It's loaded with protein, and is delicious as a burger on fresh bread! - 25 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
