Cayenne Seasoned Black Bean Burgers

The healthiest burgers to put on the grill this Father’s Day is Black Bean Burgers! But the transition isn’t always easy for those die-hard meat eaters. I find it is best to have both meatless and meat patties ready to go, and this way everyone is happy at your barbecue. But to be quite honest, I don’t know why the wait to switch to meatless!
