Beet burgers

Makes 6-8 servings
4 medium sized beets
2 sprigs of basil, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
salt and black pepper, to taste
1/4 to 2/3 cup flour
olive oil
mozzarella cheese
burger buns
1.  Trim beet tops and root.  Shred the beet in a food processor; transfer to a bowl.  Add basil, onions, eggs, salt and pepper; mix.
2.  Mix in just enough flour to make the mixture stick together.  Form into 4-inch patties about 1/2 inch thick.  (Don't make them too thick or the centers won't cook well.)
3.  Heat 1/4 inch of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Fry patties 2-3 minutes on one side, until crispy.  Turn, place a slice of mozzarella on top and fry 2-3 minutes more, until crispy.
4.  Place hot on bun; serve immediately.
