STEP 3: Cover bottom of non-stick pan (I used a cast iron skillet) with olive oil. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Make sure the oil has time to heat up before adding the burgers.

STEP 4: Place patties in pan and cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until patties are browned. Inside will still be slightly soft, but still heated throughout.
