1 egg

1/3 cup panko

Finely chopped sautéed kale (or other leafy green)

Cornbread Buns
Box cornbread batter (mix, butter, egg, buttermilk, etc.)

Spicy Mayo
1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 tablespoon hot sauce

1/2 clove garlic, minced

Special Equipment
9 mason jar lid rings (large)


1. Preheat oven to 400˚F/200˚C.

2. Lay out 12 mason jar lid rings upside down on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

3. Spray rings thoroughly with cooking spray.

4. Mix cans of beans, BBQ sauce, seasoned salt, egg, and panko in food processor until it becomes a thick paste.

5. Mix cornbread batter/mix - it should be fairly thick

6. Fill 4 rings with bean mix (they can be compacted to the rim of the ring).

7. Fill 8 rings with cornbread batter. (Do not completely fill. Leave a small amount of room at the top to allow for rise, making sure the spread batter evenly throughout ring.)

8. Bake 20-25 minutes or until cornbread is golden brown and burgers are lightly browned.

9. Mix all ingredients for the spicy mayo and store in a refrigerator until ready to use.

10. Assemble burger including any additional ingredients desired (we used sautéed kale, but also suggest collard greens or spinach).
