I seriously enjoyed these bean and spinach burgers. The cheddar adds a delicious cheesiness and all that spinach means you’re getting lots of goodness as well. I’ve had these as burger patties in a roll for dinner, and served with salad for lunch and they are excellent both ways.

I definitely recommend not skipping popping them in the fridge for a bit before cooking, it really helps ensure they stay together nicely. There’s nothing worse than trying to flip a burger patty and have the whole thing fall apart on you! I mean, they still taste delicious but it does make it slightly messier in your burger bun!
