Pre cooked Cheeseburgers

A large tray will hold about 8 pre made burgers*


  1. Cook burgers on the grill, or stove. I grilled to allow grease to drain off during cooking. I cooked mine to 140 °F and let rest to 145 °F for a rare burger.
  2. Dab burgers with paper towels to remove excess grease and myoglobin, you can also rinse in hot water to remove extra grease. Let rest on paper towels to remove extra grease.
  3. Place on a parchment lined tray.
  4. Pre Freeze
  5. Freeze Dry
  6. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help) 

Condiments directions

Cheese: rehydrate shredded cheese in a bowl using a can of beer. This process is slow and will take time. May need to sit overnight.

Avocado: I rehydrate with lemon water to keep from going brown

Cycle Time 

My cycle time in a mixed load of raw and cooked hamburgers was just over 30  1⁄2 hours.


I tried water, beer, pickle juice, and beef stock to rehydrate, letting the burgers sit covered in liquid until rehydrated.


These burgers were already cooked, so all you have to do is heat up on the grill or stove.


* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray

Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
