Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, combine bulgur and 1 cup boiling water. Cover tightly and let sit until bulgur is tender, 30 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing to remove liquid, then return bulgur to bowl. In a food processor, pulse pinto beans until coarsely chopped. Add beans to bulgur, along with Swiss cheese, carrots, scallion, and egg. Season with salt and pepper; mix well.

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium. Add 1/2 cup bean mixture and press lightly with a spatula to flatten. Make 3 more patties, working in batches if necessary (add more oil for second batch), and cook until browned and cooked through, 3 minutes per side. Serve burgers on buns with sprouts and avocado slices.

What do you suggest for any alternative for the Swiss cheese? Vegan Chz will not work as a binder!! The egg is fine. Thanx in advance for, any/all suggestions!raf

These were different and quite tasty. Got good reviews by my family. For some reason, though, they did not bind together, and I ended up with a skillet full of mush. After browning them on the stove, I had to re-form them into patties and bake them in the oven for a few minutes. Not sure what I did wrong?!?!

I make these all the time for Sunday dinner and they're always a hit. I use quinoa because I can never find bulgar.
