When people come over for a meal, they frequently ask for my hamburgers. I can’t wait to show you how easy it is to cook delicious juicy hamburgers in the oven. This post contains affiliate links.
What is the best meat for juicy hamburgers in the oven?
You can make hamburgers with any kind of ground beef. But, I’ve found the best is an 85/15 sirloin blend. They don’t shrink up too much, and they always come out juicy and delicious.
What do you need to cook hamburgers in the oven?
I love my burger press and using little parchment paper rounds for pre-making burgers. It makes burgers so easy. In fact, I’ll buy a big pack of meat from Sam’s Club or Costco, and make uncooked hamburgers in backs of 6 (for our family of 6) and freeze them for later.
You can even use this burger press to make a quick hamburger and cook it right in the microwave.
When making my hamburgers ready for the oven, I use Worcestershire sauce and minced garlic.
What toppings are good for juicy hamburgers made in the oven?
I like to go with colby cheese or sharp cheddar cheese slices. I also love sliced avocado or super simple guacamole. The combination of the garlic, cheese, and avocado make one delicious burger. It’s my favorite way to eat one!
My family also loves topping burgers with the typical ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions. They also love barbecue sauce and ranch dressing as toppings, too.
How do you cook hamburgers in the oven?
I use my burger press and make 6 hamburger patties. I don’t mix in any ingredients. I just use straight hamburger meat (preferably 85/15).
Then, spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with oil spray and place the burgers in to it. I can cook between 4 and 6 hamburger patties in a 9 x 13 dish.
I give a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce on each burger.
I find the best temperature is 375 F degrees for 30 minutes. At the halfway mark, I flip the burgers over and add a second dash of Worcestershire sauce and a small spoonful of minced garlic in water in the middle of each burger.
Then, at the 30-minute mark, I check to make sure the hamburgers are at the right temperature (above 160 F degrees). This is my favorite digital meat thermometer.
Immediately take them out of the oven and add a slice of cheese to each burger. This allows the cheese to melt, while I grab the buns.
Some people love toasted buns. My husband adds butter to the inside of each piece of the bun and toasts it in the toaster oven for a few minutes. I prefer a fresh, soft bun that’s not toasted.
Can you freeze cooked hamburgers?
Yes! I wrap them individually in wax paper and freeze all together in a gallon size freezer bag for up to 2 months.
I heat up a frozen burger on a paper towel in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.
How do you store cooked hamburgers in the oven?
Hamburgers get eaten fast in this house, especially leftovers from burger night.
I just make up the hamburgers with cheese and the bun and place each hamburger by itself in a sandwich-sized ziplock bag. Then, you can add your own toppings after heating it up.
I store them for up to 4 days in the fridge this way.
