    We love these burgers. My husband is a meat eater and he loves them. I've even made them for company and every time they request the recipe. I use a food processor to chop everything and add black beans last.

    Loved it as is! Maybe next time I will try it with crushed pineapple mixed in it instead of sliced on top.

    These were WONDERFUL!!! The sauce was unique and the grilled pineapple made them extra special. My boys ate 1-1/2 of them and my hubby 2-1/2!!! Very good!
