Cooking fresh patties

  1. Heat up a cast iron skillet over medium heat and once hot add the patties. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottoms are brown and the top of the patty is becoming a light beige color. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes until the juices run clear. Remove from pan and serve.

Cooking frozen patties

  1. Place patties into a cold cast iron skillet and put on the lid. Turn the burner on to medium and cook for 3-7 minutes (depending on your burner). Once you hear a lot of sputtering you can remove the lid and check the patties. Flip the patties once the bottoms are browned and the tops are turning beige in color. Cook on the other side for 1-3 minutes until the  juices are running clear. Remove from pan and serve.
