  1. Add all patty ingredients to a blender or food processor and mix approximately 40 seconds or until the texture is consistent with no big chunks.
  2. Put filling in a large gallon-size resealable bag. Cut 1″ hole in the corner to create a piping bag.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat with a little oil.
  4. Squeeze mixture out of bag, using a silicon spatula to form a uniform patty.
  5. Cook for about a minute and then flip. Add cheese, if desired, along with a tablespoon of water and cover pan to help the cheese melt. Heat approximately 1 1/2 minutes more.
  6. Construct your burger and enjoy.
