How To Cook Frozen Burgers

1. How to Cook Frozen Burger on Stovetop


  • 2 frozen burger patties
  • 1 Tbsp Butter/oil
  • Salt & pepper


  • Place a cast-iron pan on medium heat on the stove, add the butter, and let it melt.
  • Now, arrange the frozen burger patties in a single layer in the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
  • Cook for 6 minutes undisturbed over medium heat.
  • Now, flip the patties and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat. At every 2 minutes interval, flip the patties.
  • You will know they are done when the juices run clear, and the patties have a crisp brownish exterior.
  • Remove into a dish, stuff it in burger buns along with other ingredients, and serve. 

Notes: If you prefer a moist burger patty, cover the pan while cooking. For the final 2 minutes, increase the heat to high and sear each side for a minute to get the browned partially crisp exterior. 

2. How to Cook Frozen Burger in an Air Fryer


  • 1 frozen beef patty
  • Oil spray
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 cheese slice
  • 2 burger buns (for assembly)
  • Lettuce leaves, pickles, tomato slices, onion slices, & sauce (for assembly)


  • Spray oil on both sides of the frozen beef patty. Also, sprinkle some salt & black pepper and place it on the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 13 minutes at 370° F. At 7 minutes intervals, flip the patty using tongs.
  • Now, place the cheese slice on top of the patty. Also, place 2 burger buns (flat-side down) on the air fryer basket in a single layer leaving an inch gap between them.
  • Air fry for 1 minute till the cheese melts and the buns are warm.
  • Remove into a dish, assemble, and serve!  

Notes: You don’t need to thaw the patty or preheat the air fryer.

3. How to Cook Frozen Burger in the Oven


  • 2 frozen burger patties
  • Oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 cheddar cheese slices


  • Begin by preheating the oven at 425° F.
  • Meanwhile, line a baking tray with foil and place a wire rack on top. Then, brush oil on the frozen patties, season with salt & pepper, and put them on the wire rack.
  • Slide the tray in the middle rack. Bake for 20-22 minutes at 425° F while flipping the patties after 10 minutes.
  • Shift the tray to the upper rack and broil for 3 minutes per side.
  • Lay a cheese slice on top of each burger patty, replace the tray on the middle rack and let the cheese melt on the oven’s residual heat.
  • Lastly, assemble the patty in burger buns along with fresh veggies and sauce.

Notes: Broiling gives the patty an enhanced taste. If your oven doesn’t have a broiler, increase the heat to 500° F and cook for 6 minutes (3 mins per side).
