Baking is our preferred method of cooking frozen patties.
Preheat oven to 425, splash a bit of oil on both sides of the patty and bake 10-15 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Let burgers rest 5 minutes before serving.

Pickled onions make everything taste better
Veggie nachos: crumble patty on top of tortilla chips, add plenty of cheese and bake. Top with pico de gallo, guacamole, lime, cilantro, pickled onions or jalapenos, etc.
