Description

Flavor bursting. Your favorite sandwich made veggie!

Ingredients

  • 2-½ Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided
  • 1 whole Red Onion, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Cannellini Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Basil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ teaspoons Smoked Paprika
  • ½ teaspoons Onion Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • 1  Large Egg White
  • ½ cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Softened Butter For Spreading
  • Whole Grain Bread Slices
  • 6 ounces, weight Freshly Grated Monterey Jack Cheese

Preparation

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and onions with a pinch of salt. Stir to coat, then cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until caramelized. While onions are cooking, make the burgers.

In a large bowl, mash beans with a potato masher or fork. I like to mash them halfway, leaving some whole. Add in basil, garlic, paprika, onion powder, salt and pepper, mixing to combine. In a smaller bowl, lightly beat egg and egg white, and add in 1 tablespoon olive oil and panko, stirring to mix. Add the egg mixture to the beans, and mix thoroughly to combine, bringing it together with your hands if needed. Separate the beans into 4-6 equal sections and form patties. I think the key to a great patty melt is making them according to the size of your bread slices, so the amount of patties you get may vary.

Heat the same large skillet over medium-high heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil (or as much as you need). Add burgers and cook on each side until golden, about 5-6 minutes. Remove burgers with a spatula and set on a plate.

To make the patty melts, butter one side of bread, placing it in the skillet butter-side down. Add a few handfuls of grated cheese, then place a burger on top. Top that with some onions and more cheese, then one more side of buttered bread, with the buttered side facing up. Cook on medium-low heat (slowly!) until the cheese begins to melt and glue the sandwich together, then flip and cook until the bread is golden and toasty. Eat!

Loved this recipe:) The only problem I had was that my ‘burger’ was on the dry side. I think because I made them to big and thick so they took awhile to heat through and by the time the cheese was melted the burger was crumbly. Next time I would make them just a bit smaller. I also added more salt, pepper and a pinch (or two) of cayanne to bump up the flavor. The carmelized onions were awesome and added such a great flavor kick. I didnt put in on bread, we just ate the patty. Everything else I followed from the recipe. Along with a greek salad (tomatoes,cucumber,onion,feta,kalamata olives,olive oil, and fresh lemon) this was a great light meal. Thanks for posting:)
