Optional Add-ins

  • Preheat a cast-iron skillet, griddle, or stainless-steel frying pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is warm, heat the butter or cooking oil in the pan.
  • Cook the burgers for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, until they’re cooked to your desired internal temperature is reached. Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Serve burgers with your favorite gluten-free buns and toppings! Enjoy
