YMMV.
I still fry bacon. I put the bacon in a cold pan and put it on low heat. It takes quite a while, but works well. Never think that you know everything about cooking--or anything else. Someone always knows more than you do.

Personally, I have always found Jennio products to be of the lowest quality. I would ony buy ground turkey from a store who grinds their own turkey.

Frying frozen burgers can be dangerous and result in serious burns from burgers exploding once both sides have been seared and water trapped inside. You may want to thaw first to allow water to escape.

Do they have any added sugar in them? Sugar burns easily, blackens.

I use fresh ground turkey to make burger patties out of and like them better than any prepackaged patties I've tried including Jennie O.

The texture and flavor is better and I can make them as thin or thick as I like and they brown not blacken.

Same here. I bought frozen Boca turkey burgers that said, "Now extra juicy!" on the box, which apparently the marketers put on there as some kind of sick joke. Cooked them according to the directions, and they were the driest, chewiest turkey burgers I've ever eaten in my life. Wonder what they were like before "Now extra juicy".

I will use only fresh ground turkey from now on.

I have no idea who writes those directions. They've got to be people who can't successfully fry an egg or cook spaghetti. You know how to cook, so forget the nonsense printed on the package.

In another thread mentioned using Smart & Final 1/4 lb burger patties They come frozen so I micro a few secs before frying.
The meat ( beef) is delicious.
A person should NEVER put a frozen item directly on or inside a stove to cook.

I had these burgers before. Preferred the seasoned version. I too tried the instructions and ended up with a splatter mess on the stove. Next time I used a pan cover that fit the skillet and it made a big difference. I no longer go by the time on the bag. Next time try using the thinnest amount of vegetable oil just to coat the pan. Place the patty in the skillet and cover then turn heat to medium. Thankfully my pot lid is glass so I can physically see the burger without lifting. You can also go by the smell to lift to check the underside. Once it looks done on the underside, flip and cover again. Don’t let it sit as long as the first side.

I thaw ground turkey before I fry it. For me, 2:30 on one side and 1:30 - 2:00 minutes on the other does it at Medium Heat.
