Malibu Burgers are easy to prepare, too. Only prepare one burger at a time in the microwave. To microwave it, just place the frozen burger on a microwave safe plate. Microwave the covered burger for 1 minute 45 seconds to 2 minutes. Halfway through cooking your burger, turn it over. It's that simple! If you like a crispier burger, you can spend 10 minutes cooking it in a skillet. Spray both sides of the frozen burger with oil or non-stick cooking spray. Use a non-stick skillet, or a trusty, well-seasoned iron skillet, and cook the burger over medium heat. Halfway through cooking the burger, flip it over to the other side. That's it!
