Using a food processor, combine 1 can of black beans, parsley, cilantro and egg until blended. Take the mixture from the food processor bowl and add to a large mixing bowl. Add the second can of black beans. Add finely diced onion and garlic, then add the bread crumbs. Mix by hand until properly incorporated, the mixture should look coarse. Season to taste.
Divide the batch into four portions and shape into burger patties.
Grill the burger patties on each side for 5-8 minutes or until desired doneness. Place two slices of Cooper® Sharp Black Pepper cheese on each of the patties in an “X” pattern. Allow to melt.
If serving with optional burger toppings, spread mayo on bottom portion of whole-grain bun. Layer lettuce and tomato. Place Cooper® cheese-covered burgers on top, then cap off with the top of the bun.
