    They would 'cook through' but wouldn't colour or get a 'crust'.

    Yes, but they aren't as good as grilled and you can only make one or two at a time.. You need to make them doughnut shaped with a hole in the middle. Cook on one side for 40 sec (60 if you do two at a time)' Turn the burger over and cook for another 15 sec (30 for two).

    you CAN cook anything in the microwave. the real question is should you. Raw meat often gets tough when nuked.

    Apparently you do not live near a White Castle.

    I suppose you could if you like wasting money,and ingredients.The microwave is clearly NOT the best tool for the job.If your only cooking option is a microwave,I would look for something else,not a burger.

    As long as you microwave it on high and cook it thoroughly. But you might want to soak it in lemon juice before hand to keep it lubricated.

    rub the burger with some garlic salt and brush with olive oil and put it in the oven at 400 until cooked through.

    Technically yes, you can, at least in my microwave there is a setting for ground beef, but o gawd it comes out absolutely NASTY.
