Mixing up the meat and seasonings the night before will allow for the flavors in this recipe to fully develop. Cover the formed patties and place them in the refrigerator to chill overnight. When it’s time for breakfast, continue with step 3 (cooking the patties) so they’re hot and ready to add spice to your morning meal!
