Baked Bean Burgers for Vegan Tuesday

This is my new burger invention--burgers made from canned vegetarian/vegan baked beans. I was really in the mood for burgers for dinner, but I didn't feel like waiting to cook some dried beans from scratch. So, I opened a can of baked beans, added some salt and pepper, a small handful of oatmeal, and a small handful of sunflower seeds. I mixed that up, and added just enough flour to bind. I put the mix in the fridge for about 20 minutes to make forming the patties easier. This much mix will make 4 very large patties, or 6-8 smaller patties. Form the burgers and bake them in a preheated 325F oven until firm and lightly browned--for me it was about 25 minutes. Top with vegan cheese, or leave plain. To serve the burgers I channeled Bobby Flay and topped them with lettuce, hot mustard, tomatoes, red onion, and a big stack of potato chips.

These are really yummy, and since they taste very baked bean-y, I think even non-vegans would enjoy them.
