Red Bean Gouda Burger with Carrot Fries

red bean burger_1170x617

We adapted our Black Bean Burgers to make this Red Bean Gouda Burger - when the burgers are cooking, roast carrot fries on the same pan.

We like to mix up our fries and chips on burger night from sweet potato fries, to blue potato fries, to beet chips and now carrot fries. Try them all.

Notes: Make extra and freeze for later. Once cooled, burgers can be frozen in a single layer.
