  1. Put the drained beans in a food processor, and pulse the machine on and off several times until coarsely chopped. Add the onion, anchovies, and mustard, and season well with salt and pepper. Pulse a few times more. You want the mixture to be well combined, but not pur�ed. Now add the eggs, and pulse again until blended. Add 2-3 tbsp flour to bind the burgers, and pulse until incorporated.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, spoon out a portion of the bean mixture (there is enough to make 6 burgers) and, using well-floured hands, form into a patty just before adding to the pan. Working in batches, cook 2 or 3 patties at a time for 4-6 minutes, turning only once, until firm and golden. Add more oil to the pan as needed. Set aside and keep the burgers warm as you cook the remaining patties.
  3. Serve each burger inside a bun with crisp lettuce and tomato ketchup.
