So I know that you know we are so busy around our house (I say it enough) and I bet you are too! And even if you’re not really busy, well who likes to clean up a messy kitchen!? The other day my fam was requesting burgers for dinner, but it seemed like I had just cleaned the kitchen..again..enter, cooking your burgers in the oven!
I didn’t want the greasy mess of burgers..and although I had pre made frozen burgers..I still didn’t want the mess of frying burgers and it was way to wet and rainy to grill on the Barbeque. So I thought and thought how I could escape this little duty..and came up with this little idea! Cook them in the oven. I had no idea if this would really work..but hey..I’ll try anything to get out of a little work!
Have you ever tried Cooking Your Burgers in the oven?

Kitchen utensils, gadgets and doo dads you need for cooking your burgers in the oven:
- Wire Baking Rack or Broiler Pan ~ I use these for everything…it’s a much healthier way to cook because the grease goes through to the bottom of the pan and away from the meat. The non stick racks are the best…easy clean once again.
- Large Cookie Sheet Pan ~ Gotta have large Cookie Sheet Pans, I don’t want to clean more than one pan.
- Spatula ~ I love my silicone spatulas because you can use them in extreme heat or cold and they are so easy to clean!!Here is what I did..
Line a Cookie Sheet with foil..
Put the Cooling Racks/Rack on top of foil..Spray with Cooking Oil…gotta have easy clean up..
Lay out Frozen Burgers onto racks… homemade or store bought, either works great!
Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes..then turn over and Top with Cheese for an additional 5
I broiled for just a few seconds..to make them “look grilled” 😉
(Be sure and check for doneness)
Oh and Clean Up..
Put Racks in Dishwasher..
And throw foil away!
So what do you think? It took me a matter of minutes of my time for clean up.. from start to finish. Not including cooking time of course 🙂
