Spicy Chili Bean Burgers

Spicy Chili Bean Burgers

Come and get 'em! Veggie burgers packed with fiber-rich cereal are ready in less than 30 minutes.
You might think veggie burgers don't have flavor just like I did, but I decided to give them a try and I am so glad that I did, we like them, and are going to try vegetarian foods a couple times a week.


Prep Time
25 Minutes
Total Time
25 Minutes
Makes 5 sandwiches

1 cup Fiber One® original bran cereal(any good bran will do)
1 can (15 or 16 oz) spicy chili beans in sauce, undrained
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup chopped green onions (4 medium)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/4 cups washed fresh baby spinach leaves
5 slices tomato
5 whole wheat burger buns, split

Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
In medium bowl, mash beans with fork until no whole beans remain. Add crushed cereal, oats, onions and egg; mix well. Shape mixture into 5 patties, each about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add patties; cook over medium heat about 10 minutes, turning once, until brown.
For each sandwich, place 1/4 cup spinach leaves and 1 tomato slice on bottom half of bun; top with bean burger and top half of bun.
