Black Bean Burgers
Combine the black bean burger ingredients except the breadcrumbs.
Mash the beans with a potato masher or fork until most of the beans are mashed, leaving some whole. Add in the breadcrumbs until the mixture is thick enough to be formed into patties.
Divide the bean mixture in half and shape each half into a patty. Patties can be refrigerated until ready to cook.
To cook the burgers, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat in an oven-safe skillet. Add patties and brown on each side, about 5 minutes.
While patties brown, preheat oven to 350 degrees. After the patties have browned on both sides, put the skillet in the oven to allow the burgers to warm through, about 6 more minutes. Remove from oven and top with cheese.
While the burgers cook, make the fried egg. Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet.
Once butter melts, crack egg into skillet and cook over medium heat until the whites are cooked and set. Repeat with the remaining egg.
To assemble the burgers, place lettuce, fried tortilla strips, burger patty on a bun. Top with salsa and a fried egg. Add sliced jalapeños if using.
