The other night is when I said "I've had it" with those preformed frozen 1/3 lb patties you get at supermarkets. I tried at least 4 or 5 brands. Kroger, Bubba, Safeway Select, Butchers Pride, etc. I always remembered to get the freshest bags too, where you could see thru the bag. I looked for bags with the most red looking patties. I cooked them up perfectly with a bit of red showing in the center but couldn't still couldn't really taste it! I might make my own frozen patties tho for convience , using fresh ground beef and squashing them into round patties between pieces of wax paper, and then freezing them. A specialty freezer for flash freezing foods sure would be nice. Way expensive.

I love my little upright freezer that has a flash freeze setting at this time of year.

I think it's likely that the people responding to this thread are more likely to use pre-formed burgers. I bought them a couple times years ago but we prefer to make them ourselves.

Then there are two freaks here. I can't stand the things either. Heck, the only thing I might buy at a Mickey D's is coffee...and then only if it's Newman's Own.

It was just another post about cooking hamburgers. Btw, go no bigger than 2 oz. ball of meat when you squash them down to round patties. I made each pattie bigger at 2.35 oz each...times 4. They tasted beefy cheesy good, but I was gut busted. 2 double cheese burgers. Btw, buy the regular small sized sesame buns.

Hamburgers

Hardee's Mushroom Swiss burger, IMHO, is wonderful, and a standard to which I hold all fast food burgers. The best knockoff of it uses premade patties, Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup, and Swiss cheese. Here's one, though I know the first knockoff I found specifically called for frozen patties, and it was spot-on. http://www.food.com/recipe/hardees-m...s-burger-11789

I would have never thought to marinate a burger, this calls for some experimentation!

I bought pre-formed, frozen, burger patties at Costco. They are a time saver. You can pull out however many patties you want and just throw them on a frying pan. They cost the same as the ground beef and the package said that the only ingredient was beef. We didn't like them, so we haven't bought them since.

Sure, it only takes a minute to form a patty out of ground beef. But, I have to make all the patties when I buy the meat or at least portion the meat into patty sizes and then freeze it. If I don't portion it, then when I want to use it I have to wait for a larger chunk of ground beef to thaw. Often after a big shopping trip, I just don't have the energy or time to start playing with ground beef.

If I could get good quality, pre-formed, frozen, burger patties at the price of ground beef that tasted good, I would buy and use them.
