Thanks for having me on your show Chef Jeff! I wanted anyone watching this video to know that the burger was at least as delicious as it looks. I made the left over mix for my husband and I the next day and it inspired my husband to start making "burgers" out of all kinds of beans and even split peas. All of them have been fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
