Cooking Your Burgers in The Oven!

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..

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?



Here is what I did..

Line a Cookie Sheet with foil..

Put Cooling Racks on top of foil..Spray with Cooking Oil..easy clean up..

Lay out Frozen Burgers onto racks..

Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes..then turn over and Top with Cheese for an additional 5

Oh and I broiled for just a few make them “look grilled”  😉

(Be sure and check for doneness)

That’s it!  

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  :)

    Wow! Wish i would have thought of this last week when we were craving burgers, but our propane was empty :( We of course fried them up in a pan… good burgers…. AWFUL mess! Next time, we are doing it your way! Thx for the tip! :)

    Can’t wait to try this. We don’t have a grill anymore so burgers get cooked on the griddle, which makes a big mess. Your way looks awesome! I cook bacon in the microwave on paper plates and paper towels so after it’s cooked (perfectly) I just throw away the grease soaked paper plates and towels. Clean up done!

    Happy Sharefest. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

        I love to throw 2 packs of bacon on cookie sheets and bake @300 for 10 min. Save bacon grease for flavor in other recipes but do not pour hot grease into a glass container.
        This gives me a stash of bacon that can be individually frozen and then nuked in the microwave as needed.

          What a great idea MJ! I hadn’t thought of cooking my bulk bacon on a cookie sheet and freezing for later! Thank you for sharing your great tip! You ROCK! Have a blessed Christmas!

    Have tried this method several times with our home-made frozen 4 oz. hamburger patties and they have turned out great each time. Thanks for the suggestion to bake them in the oven.

    I love your ideas and have been freezing cooked hamburger for years and freezing in gal bags pressed out thin for easy defrost. I do drain it before freezing but never thought of rinsing it. As for your patties, how do you get them so thin and perfectly the same size?

    I have made burgers in the oven for years! My son loves burgers, and it became his favorite way of me cooking them, even over grilled! I started doing it to avoid that ‘bubble’ in the middle when they are fried on the stove. When cooked in the oven the burgers stay uniform in size and cook fairly quickly.
