  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook, undisturbed, until bottom forms a browned crust and most of oil is absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes. Flip patties and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan, swirling to coat bottom. Cook, undisturbed, until browned on other side and heated through, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve on buns with accompaniments.

Cook's Notes

The patties can be prepared through step 1 a day ahead, placed on a parchment-lined baking sheet, covered, and kept in the refrigerator.

Variations

For smaller appetites, form the bean mixture into six patties.
