Recipe by Bergy

I love to have a different veggie every once in a while and this one does it for me. Keep it bland or spicy (I love spicy), it's up to you. Hope you enjoy it!

These are FABULOUS Bergy! OMG!! I used 1 can of Cannellini beans, which was a little less than 2 cups, so I used about 2/3 of an egg, and I ended up needing about 2/3 cup of bread crumbs, but that could just be from some of the moisture left on the beans, as I didnt drain completely dry. I used fresh parsley and took your advice and used 2 tablespoons of hot sauce, since we love things kicked up a bit!! :) These taste absolutely scrumptious! We will be making these time and time again... My fiance was raving about them! :) Thanks for the recipe Bergy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups drained cooked white beans (you may use other canned beans, Save a few tbsp of liquid when you drain the beans) or 2 cups canned white beans (you may use other canned beans, Save a few tbsp of liquid when you drain the beans)
  • 12 cup onion, minced fine
  • 14 cup fresh parsley, minced or 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • salt
  • pepper
  • hot sauce (I like about 2 tbsp to zip them up) (optional)
  • 14 cup coarse cornmeal or 14 cup fresh breadcrumb
  • peanut oil


  1. Heat oven to 200°F.
  2. Mash the beans, but do not puree, have a few lumps in here, add a bit of bean water if necessary to even out.
  3. Combine the beans, onion, parsley, egg salt& pepper.
  4. Add crumbs (I like the crumbs best) or cornmeal by the tbsp until you have a batter that you can handle by hand. Shape into hamburger shaped patties and fry in lightly sprayed oil coated pan, 3-5 minutes each side or until browned on each side. Keep warm in the 200°F oven until all are cooked or you could serve at room temperature.
