Happy Friday everyone…I can’t even begin to tell you what a long week this has been for us. Between crisis, sports, work…Oi… This is exactly WHY I’m a bit fanatical about having something like freezer meals in the freezer at all times and have some great frozen hamburger patty recipes.
You just never know when an emergency will strike or you get stuck in traffic or whatever. These pre cooked burgers to freeze are so easy and can be heated up in a matter of minutes on those crazy days!
I know that you know I make my own homemade Hamburger Patties to freeze for later, BUT did you know that sometimes I ALSO make homemade Pre Cooked Burgers to freeze for later? Yep, just like what you can buy in the grocery store…only fresher!
Homemade Pre Cooked Burgers to Freeze
Now sometimes these things seem like such a no brainer, right?! But then we forget to DO it. Making homemade Pre cooked Burgers to freeze for later is a SUPER time saver and oh so deelish. Another benefit, anyone in the house can pop one of these in the microwave at anytime and have a great meal… and you don’t even need to be there to supervise! Yay!
How do you freeze cooked hamburger patties?
I’ve been buying in bulk for many years from Zaycon Foods (update~sadly Zaycon has gone out of business) because it is so very inexpensive and such good quality!
Cut some up just to freeze in large chunks or use the whole thing to make Hamburger Patties. Use some super sharp knives to make this process a breeze!
Use part of your meat to make Hamburger Patties (you can season them or not to your liking)
Now cook until well done. You can either fry them or bake them in the oven (that’s what I do..less mess and can cook more at a time) Here’s how I cook burgers in the oven.
I maaaay have overcooked these a tiny bit…but they are still super good and since I will just zap them in the microwave quickly, they won’t get more cooked. Just heated.
Let them cool a little then place into a freezer bag for later! You can’t let meat sit out too long after cooking so that’s why there is steam in the bag.
There you have it, homemade pre cooked burger patties for any time. Great meal ideas for kids that are on the go too! Just pop into the microwave from frozen for about 1 1/2 min..depending on your microwave. Don’t over cook since these are cooked well.
