Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, either in a food processor or with a
potato masher. The cooked beans should be mashed, not pureed, and the
mixture should form into balls easily. If the mixture is too wet, add a
little more breadcrumbs or flour. Form the mixture into eight burgers and
place them on a lightly greased baking tray. Bake at 350’F. for 45 minutes,
turning them over after 30 minutes. Place the burgers inside buns (“Eating
In” also includes a recipe for whole-wheat buns) and top with fried onions,
lettuce, tomato, pickles, or whatever your taste dictates. Each burger
