  2. In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties over medium heat 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°.

"I made this just as recipe asked. Changing nothing and it was just ok. I was very disappointed in the flavor it tastes like a giant meatball patty on bread with pizza and I thought it was a bit to plain and unfavorable. If I made this again I would maybe try adding more garlic and spices to the meat mixture. The toasted bread was fine. Thanks."
