Cook patties over medium-high heat on a lightly oiled grill.  Cook for 5-7 minutes per side, testing doneness with a digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty — burgers are completely cooked when thermometer reads 160°F (71°C).  If you prefer them a little pink on the inside, take them off the heat at 160°F (60°C).
