How Do You Cook Impossible Burgers On The Grill?

  1. Prep Your Grill: Before starting, ensure your grill is preheated to medium-high heat. The coals should be hot and glowing if you use a charcoal grill. Using a gas grill, the burners should be set to medium-high heat. 
  2. Prep the Impossible Burgers: Open the package and place them on a plate or cutting board. Lightly brush each side of the burgers with a bit of oil (we recommend olive oil) to prevent them from sticking to the grill. 
  3. Place the Burgers on the Grill: Once the grill is preheated, place the burgers on the grill. Grill for about 4 minutes on each side. 
  4. Check the Internal Temperature: Using an instant-read thermometer, check the internal temperature of the burgers. The burgers are done when the internal temperature reaches 165°F. 
  5. Serve: Once the burgers are cooked, remove them from the grill and rest for a few minutes. Serve the burgers on buns with your favorite toppings. Enjoy.
