Step 1.

Preheat the Foreman Grill. Start with a clean grill and make sure to have a flat, open area on your counter to place your grill. Plug in the grill. Most Foreman Grills will have a red and green indicator light. When the light turns green, you are all set to start grilling. For grills without an indicator light, I recommend waiting about five minutes before grilling.

Seasoning the Frozen Patties on the Grill

Step 2.

Grab your frozen hamburger patties and slap them on the grill. You should hear a nice sizzle as they hit the surface. Close the lid. After 2 minutes, lift the lid and season the patties with your favorite seasoning and close the lid. (It's best to apply the seasoning after the burgers have defrosted a little to prevent them from falling off.) I'm all about the basic salt and pepper. Feel free to apply your favorite seasonings at this time.

Cooking Time

Step 3.

I currently use the 2 Serving Copper Infused George Foreman Grill. Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the size of your frozen hamburger patties and which George Foreman Grill you are using. I will provide the cook times that work for me. You might have to adjust your cooking times a bit to suit your particular Foreman Grill and the size of your patties. For a typical 4 ounce frozen burger patty, I find that for medium, (pink in center), cook for 6 minutes. For well done, I try to not go past 8 minutes or the burgers will tend to dry out. You will be looking for a temperature of 160 degrees for well done if you have a instant read thermometer. The juices should run clear when the burgers are fully cooked. Remember to allow some time for melting the cheese if you opt for cheese. I usually wait to put the cheese on at the end of the cooking process. I generally unplug the grill while the cheese melts, this gives me time to set up my plate, toppings, and buns.
