Recipe Summary

Main Dish
I developed these burgers in a hotel room: they’re quick, easy, and require very few ingredients. (In fact, except for the beans and a seasoning packet, I sourced all the ingredients from the complimentary “breakfast bar.”) I make these burgers any time I need a super-fast meal or I’m really low on ingredients.
