Packs of frozen patties are of a consistent thickness and usually much thinner than homemade ones.

The tendency for fat thick burgers nowadays means that should you start cooking them without defrosting - the insides will not reach temperature before the outside is done. So it all really depends on the thickness of your patti.

Should you make them fairly even across and on the thinner side - I would say no, don't bother. But otherwise...

Your method of cooking (as in temperature used and pan) would also play a factor.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

In the United States, we have a choice of ground beef with different amounts of fat. It ranges from 72 to 95 percent lean.

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

By the way, I found out you should not mash up, ball up, form up hamburger too much. It changes the texture when pan fried.

To prevent the thing you are cooking from sticking when first put into the hot pan. You needn't put a full bottle/half a stick of the oil/fat you are using - just enough to grease the base of the pan.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
