Grilled outside or on a cast iron grill pan indoors, allow them to create a sear on one side before turning.
Combine all ingredients. The mix will be a little soft. Chill in the refrigerator while the grill or pan heat up.
Heat your pan to medium/high heat. Take out the meat mixture and scoop with a muffin scoop for uniform patties. Brush your grill lightly with vegetable oil, place patties on the grill and gently flatten with a spatula. They should be about 1/2" thick. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until you achieve clear grill marks. Place on a baking pan and finish off for 5-8 minutes in a 350 degree oven so they will cook all the way through. Cover with aluminum foil until ready to serve.
Serve over a big salad or wrap in a lettuce leaf or make them as sliders. Dip in sweet chili dipping sauce for an extra flavor kick, or if making sliders, drizzle the chili sauce over the patty as a condiment.
