    This is a silly question but I am trying to find a way to have this at work. Do you think you could pop it on a foreman grill and eat? I have a little foreman at work that I could cook them on.

  3. Heather says:

    Can these be grilled on the barbecue?

    • Katie says:

      Bean burgers are a little softer than using meat so you would want to pack the patties tightly and make sure you oil the grill well. But it should work. Enjoy!
