How long to cook Internal Temperature

What's the Right Internal Temp to Cook Burgers?

The internal temperature to cook burgers to will vary depending on the type of meat you use and how done you like your hamburgers. For ground beef burgers, the USDA recommends cooking them to 160 degrees, which will produce a well-done burger that's safe to eat.

It's important to note that hamburgers aren't like steak: Eating a rare steak can be fine, but a rare burger is risky, as ground beef is much more likely to make you sick when it's undercooked. However, if you're willing to take the risk, stopping when your burgers reach 140 degrees will cook them to medium, while an internal temperature of 150 degrees is medium-well.

If you're cooking turkey burgers, you should make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. The same goes for plant-based burgers.
