  1. Combine turkey, black beans, onion, tomato, parsley, egg white, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well combined; form into 4 patties.
  2. Heat a greased skillet over medium heat; cook patties until no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I do not use canned beans as I am trying to stay away from the preservatives and sodium. To cook dried beans, bring dried black beans to a boil and then simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until desired tenderness.
  • They come out great on the George Foreman® grill.

I pair these with Pillsbury's sweet Hawaiian biscuits. They are delicious.

The added moisture from the tomatoes extended the frying time, but it’s well worth it.

OMG, totally delish. Easy to do, nice texture.

We don’t eat red meat or regular burgers so we tend to eat a lot of turkey burgers. I was getting bored of my normal version and tried this. This was fantastic and a very different one than most...
