Minnesota Cooking Burger - Freezer to Plate in 30 Minutes

Updated on February 26, 2016

Petite Fours We Call Them


Frozen Beef Patties to Patty Melt Sandwich

I bought some hamburger in 8 pound tubes and sliced off the burger in 1/2 inch slices. They cook down, so each burger is a quarter pound to a third pound after cooked. I frozen them in patty shapes in a plastic freezer bag with waxed paper between each patty.

So. I went to my freezer and removed two patties from a bag. I then turned my oven on at 350 degrees. I used a piece of aluminum foil and placed a bit of brown gravy, garlic powder and Ultimate Steak Seasoning on the foil. I then placed the two burger patties on top on the foil on top of the gravy/garlic/seasoning mix.

The Instructions

I placed them in my oven at 350 for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, I flipped the burgers over. I then, set the timer for 5 more minutes. I took the burgers out of the oven and placed a piece of sliced American cheese on one of the patties. I started the toaster oven and got ready to put the burger together. I used a couple small pats of butter on the bread. Normally it would melt with the heat of the toast, but it's cold in my kitchen today with the winter wind blowing and my kitchen is cold, so the butter is slightly hard.

I took the burger with the cheese and placed it on the slice of bread. I put Ranch dressing on the top of the cheese, and put the other piece of toast on top.

I like to cut my sandwiches into four pieces. Petite fours, my mom called them. She also told me later that she only did it because I was a little kid, but I still cut my sandwiches this way to this day.



  • 1 patty hamburger
  • 2 tablespoons Ranch Dressing
  • 1 slice American Cheese
  • 2 pieces toast
  • 4 patties butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown gravy mix
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ultimate Steak Seasoning
