Quick Black Bean Burgers

Try this vegetarian style burger for a quick meal change in your family dinner plans.

1 can (15 oz size) black beans, drained
1 egg, whisked well
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup onion, finely diced
1/4 cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
dash black pepper

Put the black beans in a large bowl and mash with a fork or a pastry cutter until mostly smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.
Form the mixture into patties.
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
When hot, carefully add the bean burgers to the skillet; let cook until well browned, then flip and cook other side until well browned.  Get a good crispy finish.
Serve as you would any burger, with all the condiments you like.
