Suggestions for cooking frozen burgers

I quite often grind a bunch of meat for burgers and freeze the majority, already made into patties. I have a hand grinder so it's a bit of a pain in the ass to use, and it's a lot easier to do large batches.
It's handy to be able to pull a couple of patties out of the freezer and fry 'em up for a quick meal, without having to wait for them to defrost*, which leads to my question:

What's the best way to cook burgers from frozen?

*sometimes rapidity and convenience take precedence!
