My husband is a HUGE fan of this sandwich. My kids are less than tolerant because of the beans – but if your family loves beans – then this one is a home run. The best part is the 1/2 lb of hamburger – that means 2 meals from 1lb of hamburger. You could use the other half for spaghetti or some other casserole on night 2 or 3!
We serve these on sesame seed hamburger buns, or whole grain rolls if you can get them. Todd loves a slice of cheese and sweet potato fries on the side.
I’ve had this recipe over at Food.com for years – but their new website is impossible to use and navigate – so I’m moving my recipes over here and deleting my account over there. On Food.com it has 4-1/4 stars out of 5 based on 4 reviews – so folks like it – and I hope you do too!
