Progresso Breadcrumbs

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) great northern beans
  • 1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 2 medium green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup Progresso™ plain bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 slices (1 ounce each) Monterey Jack cheese
  • 5 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1/3 cup guacamole
  • 5 tablespoons Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa

Steps

  • 1
    Place beans in food processor or blender. Cover and process until slightly mashed. In medium bowl, mix beans, chiles, onions, bread crumbs and egg. Shape into 5 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick. Coat each patty with cornmeal.
  • 2
    In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook patties in oil about 10 minutes, turning at least once, until crisp and thoroughly cooked on both sides.
  • 3
    Top patties with cheese. Cover and cook 1 minute or until cheese just begins to melt.
  • 4
    Top bottom halves of buns with lettuce, patties, guacamole and salsa. Cover with tops of buns.

  • When working with sticky mixtures such as these bean patties, wetting your hands with water or spraying them with cooking spray helps prevent a mess.
  • Such a quick and easy meal! Add a fresh fruit salad and some ice cream bars for dessert.
