I found a veggie burger recipe that I really like, and I'd like to make a bunch and freeze them so that I can just pop 'em on the grill. Here is the recipe:
2 15 ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup salsa
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic salt
Place beans in food processor; process until fairly smooth. Add flour, cornmeal, salsa, cumin and garlic salt. Process until well combined.
Spoon mixture into 6 balls on a large plate and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours before cooking.
Heat barbecue grill or ridged grill pan over medium heat. Coat grill or pan lightly with oil. Form each ball into a 4-inch patty about 1/2-inch thick. Place the patties on the grill or in pan and cook until browned and heated through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Soooo... for freezing them... Can I just freeze them "raw"? Would that just increase the cooking time on the grill slightly? I was thinking that I would freeze them in patties on a cookie sheet, then, once frozen, stack them for storage. Does that make sense? Any tips for frozen burger storage?
