    Mind blown. I just can not believe how delicious hamburgers taste cooked from frozen in the instant pot. I just need a mealthy crisp lid now for the melted cheese.

    This was delicious! I made it for lunch today and my husband told me he could eat this every day. It will probably become one of my go-to recipes this summer. Thanks!

  3. My wife despises onions so we skipped that part. Cooked 6 frozen burgers for 20 minutes and they were raw. We needed 8 more minutes to get them cooked. Any idea why?

    1. Hi Mike,

      My son hates onions too so you are not alone.

      The onions wont make any difference to the cook time because the onion method would take the instant pot to pressure quicker.

      My thought as to why yours were not cooked is that your burgers might have been bigger or if your burgers were thicker it would need a longer cook time. Just like if you cooked chicken breasts a small would not take as long as an XL.

      Our burger size are similar to the small patties you would find in a Big Mac at Mcdonalds.

      If your burgers are much thicker i would recommend 30 minutes rather than 20 mins.

      kind regards


    1. Hi Chuck

      Yes it is recommended. Becasuse it keeps the flavour on the hamburgers and if you just place them on the trivet they can become dry 🙂

  4. what do the onions due as it seems to me they cant soak any of the flavor or aromatics if the patties are wrapped and seasoned?..is it for putting on the burger after cooking?, or would they be mush after pressure cooking?

  5. Can I use parchment paper instead of foil? I’ve seen other recipes for fresh, room temperature burgers that can use parchment. I’m wondering if that’s suitable for frozen patties too?

    1. Hello Sarah

      Yes parchment should fine as long as it stays closed, this is why we use foil as we found it easier to close and stay closed whilst under pressure 🙂

    Loved the frozen burgers. The onions on the bottom not so much. Will make again but without the mushy onions at the bottom in the water. The hamburgers were cooked all the way through. Not sure you can gage the “doneness” in the instant pot, we like them to have some pink in the center and these were cooked all the way through. Juicy as all get out.

    1. Hi Julie,

      We always do all of our recipes on high pressure, if it is any different we always say in the recipe. So just follow the instructions and your burgers should turn out fine 🙂

  7. I started to cook mine on 30 minutes as they are thicker 1/3 burgers as I noted to do in the previous Comments. We skipped the onion because I don’t have the thing to put on top to burgers above. I just got the burn food on the display. I quick released and took them out nothing looks burnt on bottom. Should I had water to the bottom and placed burgers in foil back in?
    I’m brand new to the instant pot.

    1. Hi Alyssa,

      Yes put about 200ml of water into the bottom of the instant pot and add the burgers back in. I am not sure why it said the food would be burnt if it had water in it to start with 🙂

    The hamburgers were so good! I had big hamburgers so I went with 30 minutes cook time. The biggest problem I had was the cheese kept flying off when I put them under the air fryer lol!

    1. Hi Kristi,

      Happy your burgers turned out, for the cheese if you are using slices we put a cocktail stick in it and snap it half way down and the cheese will not fly of 😉 also if you want melted cheese you can put some grated in a pot and when melted pour over the burgers 🙂
