From the Test Kitchen
Place patties on greased unheated broiler pan rack. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes or until done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through broiling
*Test Kitchen Tip:
The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey or chicken patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
