Get these in your face, NOW!
This was a result of trying to find a way to get rid of some tins of beans which I have been trying to get out of the cupboards since JANUARY after I realised the boy detests Red Kidney Beans and I’m not overly keen on them either.
INGREDIENTS: Makes 8. I know the picture shows 6 but they were unreasonably huge! I misjudged.
1 x 400g tin of red kidney beans, rinsed.
1 x 400g tin of baked beans, rinsed.
3 small sweet potatoes diced.
Onion, frozen is fine.
3 slices of bread worth of breadcrumbs (I toasted ‘freezer bread’ for this and then put it a slice a time through my food processor).
Garlic granules, onion powder, paprika.
About 300ml stock.
I’m not going to tell how I actually made it, I’m going to tell you how it should have been made.
Make up the stock and add the onion, sweet potato and drained beans to a big pan and boil till soft in the pan.
You may have used just enough stock to basically turn it into a semi solid mush, this is good.
Drain the mixture of excess water.
Grate the mozzarella (if you can, I gave up and just tore it into little pieces) and add that, the vegetable/bean mix and breadcrumbs into a mixing bowl.
Leave to cool until you can safely touch it and mould into patties.
Place on a tray, cover in cling film, and then place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, ideally longer.
Bake in the oven for around 35 minutes on a high heat it you like them crispy like me, flipping half way through.
Yes. I had two burgers. I was hungry. I didn’t have any sides if that somehow makes it better.
