1.

HAMBURGER PATTIES:

Bake or steam the patties according to the package directions. Overcooking the patties will cause them to be dry. (Prepare the patties in batches to maintain quality.)

2.

Drain the liquid from the pan.
If holding the patties for assembly, cover the pan until ready for service. If aluminum foil or plastic wrap is used, cut holes in it to allow steam to escape. Place the pan in warmer until ready for service.

3.

Heat the bacon according to package directions.
