i had a cooked hamburger (just plain ground beef burger, no egg) in the fridge for 9 days. is it ok to eat at this point? if it's been too long, what do u think the cut off point is? 3days? 7 days?
I mis understood the orginal question.
I was responding to Ground Beef, not a hamburger (patty). When I think ground beef, I think of Sloppy Joes, Taco Meat, Burrito Meat made with commercially prepared seasonings packages (sugar,salt, preservatives, etc).
I don't have much experience with "aging" hamburger patties, when I cook up a bunch of them, I freeze what I don't eat/serve promptly. If I freeze hamburger patties, they are cooked well done or more.
Even if I was feeling lucky (or desiring a case of "that'll teach ya...) I wouldn't go past seven days on a refridgerated burger.
