Fourth of July Black Bean Burgers

We always have a great time on the 4th of July, but every year we go and buy some sort of fake hot dog, hamburger, or sausage so we can eat with the rest of the family. We are always disappointed and have never enjoyed the taste of the fake stuff. This year with Little T around, I wanted to make something healthier. I modified the Black Bean Burger recipe from Kris Carr’s “Crazy Sexy Diet”, and holy guacamole, it was amazing. Much better than any sort of fake meat. Little T _loved_ them!

The only problem was that Little T wasn’t in the mood to watch me cook. I gave him a carrot and that amused him for a while:

But soon he wanted a lot more attention than I could give him. At least I was able to make a lot of the black bean burgers. Not enough to actually make it to the 4th of July though, so we’re going to have to go through all of that cooking again. Ah well, it will be worth it when I’m watching the fireworks with Little T and enjoying our meal together.
