  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; pan-fry patties until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

If for some reason the batter is a soupy texture, add more bread crumbs or cornmeal, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a thicker batter forms.

I thought these were wonderful! The plantain adds a bit of sweet to it which I really enjoyed. I have to admit that I had to make some changes: I didn't have any mushrooms so I used black beans as a substitute. I also added some cumin because I love it! Great recipe thanks! Read More

Didn't meet my family's or my expectations. I know it's a veggie burger but it was a little too different in both taste and texture. To help the texture I recommend finely chopping the mushrooms and olives separately and then mixing them into the other items that have been blended/processed. Adding an egg should help everything stick together. Then for the taste when working with plantains ripeness is a concern as their taste changes a lot the riper they get. In my personal experience the greener plantains will add something similar to a pickle taste which could work for a burger if you like pickles. I don't know how to give it a meatier taste. Read More

This was a nice change from usual veggie burgers. They are a bit sweet so I topped these with some buffalo sauce. I think next time I might add a few black beans and some cayenne or chipotle to the mix Read More
