Sliced tomato and sliced onion, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix beef, beans, cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce, the pepper and egg. Shape into 5 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

Tips  

Mixing ground beef with beans is a great way to enjoy the taste of beef and boost your fiber.

Offer up a platter of these tasty burgers at your next backyard barbecue. Add 1/2 cup of potato salad and carrot and celery sticks with fat-free dip for 4 Carbohydrate Choices.

Try using other kinds of beans, such as black, kidney or pinto, instead of the great northern beans.
