Foam when frying patties....

why is it that when making fried patties in a pan, there is a lot of foam?

It's water in the meat boiling off.

water does make for a little "foam" - proteins from the meat form bubbles.
but that pan looks a bit more than normal to me.

I'm wondering if there's some starch/grain component that is coming out and creating more than usual frothing . . .

egg whites / aka albumin is essentially all protein - so any liquid (like from onions) could be diluting the egg, running out of the patties and creating the frothing.


if it tastes good - just don't eat the pan, focus the patties!

What kind of fat are you using to fry the patties in?
