How to Grill Frozen Beef Patties

Frozen beef patties are a staple of many kitchens because they're quick and easy to prepare straight out of the freezer. Although you'll find several brands of pre-frozen patties at the supermarket, forming them yourself from fresh ground beef costs less and gives you the option of using leaner meat. Grill frozen patties on your grill or on your stove top using a grill pan.

Step 1

Season the patties, if you wish, by sprinkling them with salt and pepper and your favorite herbs. Use finely ground seasonings and rub them into the patties to help them adhere to the meat's frozen surface.

Step 2

Preheat the grill or grill pan. If you use a charcoal grill, light the coal according to the manufacturer's instructions. The coals are ready to use when they stop flaming and a white ash covers them. Alternatively, heat a gas grill or grill pan to medium, which is about 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 3

Place the frozen patties directly on the grill or grill pan.

Step 4

Cook the patties until the juices that rise to the surface run clear.

Step 5

Turn the patties with a spatula. Continue cooking until a thermometer inserted into thickest part of each patty registers at least 160 degrees.

Step 6

Top the patties with cheese, if you wish, just before you remove them from the grill. The meat’s heat will melt the cheese.

Step 7

Remove the patties from the grill or grill pan and serve alone or on a bun, with your favorite toppings.
