Okay, I got this recipe from Fiber One...

1 cup Fiber one original brand cereal
1 can (15 or 16 oz) spicy chili beans in sauce, undrained
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup chopped green onions (4 medium)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/4 cups washed fresh baby spinach leaves
5 slices tomato
5 whole wheat burger buns, split

1- Place cereal in resealable food storage plastic bag, seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).

2- In medium bowl, mash beans with fork until no whole beans remain. Add crushed cereal, oats, onions, and egg, mix well. Shape mixture into 5 patties, each about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

3- Spray 12 inch skillet with cooking spray. Add patties, cook over medium heat about 10 minutes, turning once, until brown.

4- For each sandwich, place 1/4 cup spinach leaves and 1 tomato slice on bottom half of bun, turning once, until brown.
