Black Bean Burgers, Coming Right Up!

This might look like a lot of ingredients, but most of this stuff you probably already have in your pantry. You can always leave something out if you don't have it (except the black beans, of course!) This is a great, healthy summer meal...enjoy!

2 15 oz. cans of black beans (well drained)
2 egg whites
2 t. minced onions
2 t. dried Italian seasoning
1 t. salt
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. black pepper
1 t. dried roasted red pepper
1 t. baking powder
2 slices of bread
1/4 cup of corn (optional)

Blend one can of black beans and the remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add last can of black beans. Blend just a little. Form 6 patties. Spray patties with oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 6 minutes on each side, spraying each side with oil before you flip. You can cook these patties the same way in a frying pan. If you have left over patties, you can freeze them and bake/fry later. Brad and I love to top our burgers with a fried egg, avocado, and cheddar cheese. Yum!
