Macadamia Crusted Black Bean Burgers

Runner Up, 1996 Bays English Muffin Contest


by Virginia Moon



For crust: Combine muffin cubes and chopped macadamia nuts in food processor. Process with on/off pulses until mixture is in crumbs. Spread crumb mixture in a plate and set aside.

For burgers: Mash beans in a large bowl. Stir in flour, mustard, tomato paste, salt, garlic, cumin, oats, rice and green onion; combine thoroughly. Form into 4 patties to fit muffins. Place patties in crumb mixture, turning to coat. Brush excess back onto plate. Grill or pan-fry burgers 3 to 5 minutes per side over medium-high heat until deep golden brown.

Arrange 2 muffin halves on plate for each serving. Spread muffins with pineapple mayonnaise. Top with shredded lettuce and bean burger. Cover with remaining muffin half.
