Turkey and Black Bean Burgers


Who doesn’t like a good burger and who says that a good burger can’t be made out of turkey?  This was a very easy and yet very delicious recipe that you can make ahead of time and then cook up when you are ready to serve.  The burger is so tasty that my husband and I ate them without bread, since we are on a low carb diet, but I served my daughter in a delicious Sara Lee Artesano bun.


I chose to cook these on the stove top and not the BBQ because I love the crust that it makes and more so the crust when the cheese gets crispy from dripping down the burger. Turkey meat is actually not that expensive so you can make these burgers for about 8 people for about $20 (meat, cheese and buns).  Since only 3 of us ate, I still have 5 burger left for tomorrow.
