Ingredients

Ground beef - The star of the recipe, choose a higher fat content (80/20) for juicier burgers. Substitute with ground turkey or chicken for a leaner option.

Breadcrumbs - Helps bind the burger together; use regular, panko, or gluten-free as needed.

Egg - Acts as a binder and adds moisture; a flax or chia egg can be used as a vegan alternative.

Seasonings - A mix of garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper for flavor. Feel free to customize with your favorite spices.

Toppings - Lettuce, tomato, cheese, and pickles for serving; get creative and add your favorite toppings or condiments.

Tips

  • Avoid overmixing the meat, as it can make the burgers tough.
  • Gently shape the patties without pressing too firmly to keep them tender.
  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure your burgers are cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  • Allow the burgers to rest for a few minutes after baking to redistribute juices.

How to Serve

Serve these oven-baked burgers with your favorite side dishes for a complete, satisfying meal. They're versatile and can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion and your preferences.

  • Classic: Serve on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, cheese, and your choice of condiments.
  • Lettuce wrap: For a low-carb option, wrap the patty in lettuce leaves and add your favorite toppings.
  • Salad: Place the patty on a bed of greens and drizzle with your favorite dressing for a lighter meal.
