I do like the occasional big, beefy backyard burger, and maybe I'm getting weak in my middle age, but sometimes my body just says, "Please, no more beef fat," and I'm compelled to comply. Good thing my black bean burgers are just as satisfying, with a complex flavor and a robust, hearty texture.
Deep fried frizzled onions are the shaved white truffles of us normal folk. Stack these fried onion strings mile high on your average backyard burger and, like magic, you’ve transformed it into the most luxe item you’d find at your average Applebee’s. Scatter onion strings atop canned green beans and you’ve gone from depressing TV dinner side to beloved holiday classic.
