Weight Watchers Black Bean Burger Recipe Make-Ahead and Freeze

I am still at it – still following Weight Watchers. I am down 20 lbs. but wouldn’t mind losing about 20 more. As you may know, the more you lose the harder it gets. It really is a change for life that requires making and eating healthy recipes most days of the week.

This is my first attempt at making my own black bean burgers. Come to find out, it’s pretty darn easy. If you like make-ahead meals, this one is make-ahead by default. The burgers are easier to handle when frozen for a couple of hours, so for best results, freeze and eat as needed per the instructions. When you think about it, it’s the same with store-bought veggie burgers – they are kept frozen until you are ready to cook them.

How did they taste? I loved them! After freezing, these are easy to handle and cook up nice and easy in a frying pan on the stove.  I am sure you could grill them indoors or out for a nice char grilled flavor.

Notes - I had my burger on 1/2 of Joseph’s Flat Bread for 1 PointsPlus and a slice of Weight Watchers reduced fat singles American Cheese for 1 PointsPlus. The total for the meal shown above is 6 PointsPlus.

    Actually, these look better than most of the purchased veggie burgers that I have see! Maybe you could add a dash of Liquid Smoke to give them a meaty flavor too?
