- Mix the burger patty ingredients thoroughly, by hand is best or in a stand mixer. Form the patties by hand or with a burger press; burger presses form tightly packed uniform patties. As a quick cooking note, if you put the patties in the freezer for 1 hour then cook them, they won’t lose their size and shape easily. Fresh burger patties always shrink and can break apart if you’re not careful with the first two flips.
- Preheat your grill on HIGH then turn the temperature down to MEDIUM. Season the cooking grids and grill directly for 12-15 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 160°F (71°C). Top and enjoy!
