  • Preheat your broiler and set a rack about 6 inches from the heating element
  • Spray a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray
  • Broil the burgers for 5-6 minutes on the first side, then flip and broil for 4-5 minutes on the second side, or until golden and completely cooked through

  • If you want to toast the rolls, you can pop them under the broiler briefly as well before serving
