In Camp

Smash beans into a paste with a spoon. Combine potato flakes, milk powder, and soup mix. Mix with bean paste and water. Shape dough into eight balls and flatten each into a one-inch-thick patty. Pour sesame seeds in a shallow plate; press each patty firmly into the seeds to coat both sides. Heat oil in a skillet and cook patties about three minutes per side, until golden brown.
