Where's The Beef? *Updated*

I recently tried something that I never in a million years thought I would even remotely desire to eat.

A Veggie Burger.

(Can you tell which one is vegetarian and which one is beef venison?)

(Yes, it is the one on the left. The adult hand and the layer of avocado should have given it away.)

I found the recipe through a link on a previous Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Sharon at Because I Must said that these burgers were good as burgers and as crumbles in a salad or taco. So I decided to give it a try.

She was right. The veggie burgers were delicious! Brian and I ate them for two meals in a row.

They are basically just black beans, corn, peppers, onion, garlic, a few spices, bread crumbs and an egg all mixed up, pressed in to patties and baked (or fried). They were very easy to make and they were extremely flavorful. They really reminded me of the Black Beans and Rice dish that we like. This is a recipe that I will definitely use again.

Don't you just love Tempt My Tummy Tuesday?

Way to go!! I remember that recipe and thought, hum... I wanted to make that. I am so glad you did. After reading Sharon's comment, I see you made her happy as well. This is just what I LOVE about Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Thank you so much.

These look so good! I notice corn in both your photos and Sharon's, but I don't see it in the recipe. Did you just mix in some canned or frozen corn before forming the patties?
