    Place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 inches from the heat for 5 minutes. Turn and broil 5 to 7 minutes more or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in side of patty registers 160 degrees F.

    Make Ahead Tip
    • Prepare burgers but do not broil. Wrap individually in freezer paper or foil; place in airtight freezer container or plastic freezer bag. Seal, label, and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw overnight before cooking as above. Prepare sauce; cover and chill up to 24 hours.
