This is a great meatless recipe which can also be made entirely from food storage items!
2 cans beans (I used 1 can black beans and 1 can kidney beans)
1/8 C water
1/2 C Bisquick
1/8 C dried minced onion
salt and pepper
2T olive oil
2 C brown gravy, prepared from mix
1. Rinse and drain the beans. Use a food processor or blender to cut up
the beans (add the water first). I like to stop while there are still
some larger pieces, to give it a bit more texture.
2. Transfer beans to a large bowl and mix in Bisquick and onion. Season
to taste. Shape mixture into 6 oval patties. Wrap each individually in
plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
3. Heat oil in a large skillet pan over medium heat. Coat each chilled
bean patty in a thin layer of Bisquick. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each
side. Pour brown gravy over patties, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans (we used dehydrated mashed
potatoes and canned green beans, which we heated up while the patties
We liked the texture of the patties (the first time I tried, they
completely fell apart), but thought we should season the beans more.
I'll have to update this when we figure out a better spice blend.
