1/2cupLard, Palm Shortening, Coconut Oil, or Avocado Oil
Heat a large cast iron skillet or pan over medium heat, add the lard and let melt. In a large bowl, mix together the burger ingredients.
In a small, shallow bowl, mix together the coating ingredients.
Take a handful of the burger mixture, try to pat it into a burger shape (it will be sticky) and then lay down in the coating mixture. Coat both sides, then flatten a bit more into a burger shape. Carefully lay the burger down in the hot lard. Repeat until there is no more room in the pan (don't overcrowd, you'll have to do this in 2-3 batches and will make 4-8 patties).
Leave to cook on that side for 5-6 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes. If you notice the coating isn't getting browned, turn the heat up slightly.
