Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Generously grease a sheet of aluminum foil with oil.
  2. Bring barley and water to a boil in a saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the barley is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Mash black beans with a fork in a large bowl until thick and pasty. Stir barley, Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, onion, red bell pepper, parsley, eggs, garlic, salt, and black pepper into mashed black beans. Mix enough bread crumbs into bean mixture to form a sticky batter that holds together.
  4. Divide batter into 4 to 6 patties; place on prepared aluminum foil.
  5. Grill patties on the aluminum foil for about 8 minutes on each side.

I thought this was an awesome recipe! I added jalapenos to spice things up a little bit and enjoyed mine with some local BBQ sauce. I read others were having problems with the burgers falling apart so I baked the burgers at 350 until cooked through and than threw them into the fridge until I wanted to heat them up again on the grill!

These were amazing! Even my little boys ate it and asked for more. I omitted mushrooms and peppers so the kids wouldn't complain of CHUNKS and ran the barley through a food processor briefly and pulsed the black beans a few times to give a smoother patty. Though I only had one egg, they held together on oiled foil on the grill with the use of some cooking spray. I threw in some liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce and used a smoked cheddar cheese to bump up the grill flavor. Delicious!

To get burgers to stick together, perhaps don't rinse the black beans and lightly coat patties with flour. Provecho!
