Recipe Tips

  • Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the patties. You should aim for an internal temperature of 72°C (160°F).
  • You can easily double or triple the ingredients if you need to feed more people.
  • The thickness of the burgers will impact the cooking time. So, if your patties are thin, consider reducing the cooking time.
  • The nutritional information below does not consider any extras that you serve with the patties, for example, the bread bun.
