    Used kidney beans in place of black beans. Brushed the tops with olive oil before going into the oven for extra crispiness. No need for salt with the feta cheese.

    Literally the best. Baking the beans is so key.

    These came out great! Instead of all bell pepper I also used .5 cup green pepper and .25 fresh jalapeño and I added some Tony’s seasoning probably could have added a little more. consistency was great would definitely make again!

    Very yummy. I added Parmesan cheese and some additional spices like adobo though because it needed more flavor.

    This was a great recipe and the serving portions was spot on!

    It turned out okay, though I did swap out the cheese for oat flour and added spicy chili sauce. I served with fresh salsa. Additionally, rather than patties I baked it in a 8x8 baking dish. This will allow me to cut into squares and freeze for single servings later.

    It turned out really well. I would probably add more spices next time to help give it a kick. Definitely held together.

    These burgers were good but they turned out a little crumbly for e and broke apart when I turned them.

    These are amazing—and I’m a bean burger guy. Pretty easy to make. The feta makes it pop and works so well. I made a bunch, baked them, then froze. Much better than store bought veggie or bean burgers. Update: the frozen ones worked great. I just put them on parchment paper on a baking sheet and baked at 400 for 10-15 min.

    I've attempted many vegetarian burgers. this one wins for ease and taste! I love this recipe. At first it was too wet, so i added extra bread crumbs. problem solved. They grilled well with the foil. i will make these again this weekend!

    Very tasty and loved the heartiness and texture the burger gave. Even my meat loving Texas raised husband and super picky 9 year old approved! We will definitely be adding this to our recipe book! We did use a banana pepper instead of bell peppers, and I started with dried beans because that was what I had in the pantry.
