Drive-In Walnut Burger (Recipe)

by Sandra Lee for the Food Network

1 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup canned garbanzo beans, drained
1/3 cup plain dried bread crumbs
1 tablespoon grill seasoning (recommended: McCormick)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 large egg
4 hamburger buns
Lettuce, tomato, avocado
Honey mustard

Set up grill for direct cooking over high heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking.

In a food processor, combine walnuts, garbanzo beans, bread crumbs, grill seasoning, paprika, pepper flakes, oil and vinegar and pulse until coarsely ground.

In a small bowl whisk egg, add to food processor and pulse for 10 seconds, just enough to incorporate egg. Divide into 4 equal-size parts; roll into balls, and flatten with the palm of your hand into 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Place burgers on oiled grill. Cook 4 minutes per side.

Serve hot on toasted buns with lettuce, tomato, avocado and honey mustard.
