Open Face Bean Patties


I don’t know about you but I absolutely love black bean patties. They last all week long and they are so delicious! Black Bean Patties are good for snacks, lunch, dinner, party favors, and even appetizers.  You can play around with the ingredients and add anying you like. The combination in the picture was a perfect portion size meal and it filled me up! This recipe never gets old. I think you should take out the time to give it a try.
