Homemade Black Bean Burger

Guys! I take back every time I’ve ever said anything good about black bean burgers in restaurants. I’m never going out for one again. These are stupid easy to make and they freeze well. This recipe makes four burgers and when I made them, I froze two thinking we’d have them for another dinner. How wrong I was. I made these in a skillet (with a lid) from frozen the following two days for lunch. Go get on these.
