Spicy Black Bean Breakfast Burger

Spicy Black Bean Breakfast Burger | protein packed quick and easy healthy breakfast made in minutes! Get a protein-packed breakfast in minutes with this Spicy Black Bean Breakfast Burger.  Perfect for when you want something quick, healthy and delicious!  

Lately, I have been feeling more tired than usual and end up hungry in the late mornings. With intense morning workouts and spending long days caring for the kids, I am thinking it might be time to change up my breakfast routine and get a little more protein. My usual breakfast consists of oatmeal with cocoa powder, flax seed meal and a banana.

While I occasionally deviate to something with a little more protein,  like Greek yogurt with berries or a smoothie, it always comes back to carb-heavy oatmeal.  It’s quick to make, and I really like a hot breakfast.  Thankfully this Spicy Black Bean Breakfast Burger has become the protein-packed solution to my breakfast woes.

This Spicy Black Bean Breakfast Burger is a healthy, meatless breakfast burger made with cheese, scrambled eggs (or egg whites) and a MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burger.  It is quick and easy, packed with protein from the veggie burger, eggs and cheese… and it’s delicious!  The flavorful seasoning is nicely balanced – spicy without being too hot, and it is perfect with the scrambled eggs and cheese.  Sometimes I add salsa or use up whatever veggies we have on hand in the egg scramble.  Other times I mix it up with another MorningStar Farms veggie burger flavor.  Any of the varieties of burgers from MorningStar Farms work in this recipe, but the Spicy Black Bean is my favorite.

We always have MorningStar Farms veggie burgers on hand for a quick, healthy lunch or dinner, or to bring to barbecues. They are a good source of meatless protein and easy to cook on the grill, microwave or stove top.  The burgers come in 12 different flavors, so there is a lot of variety to choose from.  The Mediterranean Chickpea Burger tossed with some spinach, tomatoes, red onions and cheese is fabulous as a burger, a salad or a wrap.  The Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burger is another one of my go-to burgers for the grill.
