To store your left over burger patties its best to use wax paper in between your burgers while stacking them up then place them in a freezer zip lock bag.  

You can keep your fresh patties in the refrigerator up to 3-4 days but it's best to freeze if you won't be using them within the next few days of making them.

What to do with left over's or extra product?

As luck would have it dried lentil last a very long time.  Dried beans are usually good for one year in storage if stored in a dry cool place in your home.  

Keep your dried lentils in an air tight sealed container in a dry cool place and you can use them up as needed for a long time.
