Don’t worry about grilling this winter. These simple, oven-baked hamburgers are perfect for a hungry crowd. No wire rack? No problem. This recipe offers the perfect, flavorful alternative to grilling!
These burgers come out of the oven piled high with crisp potatoes, protein-packed hard-boiled eggs, melty cheese, and caramelized onions. And everything cooks at the same time on one baking sheet! This is a quick, easy low-mess dinner to feed a crowd.
How to Cook Hamburgers in the Oven Without a Rack
The best part about this recipe? You need no special equipment, not even an oven rack, to make tender and juicy hamburgers. In fact, these burgers come with their own flavorful topping: roasted onions.
You’ll spread thinly sliced onions on a baking sheet to replace the need for a wire rack. While they cook, the onions moisten and flavor the hamburger meat for even juicer burgers than you’re used to on the grill!
How to Bake Burgers
First, slice two large white onions into thin slices.
Transfer the sliced onions to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat the onions fully and spread into one even layer.
Place 900 grams of mince meat in a mixing bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 3 minced garlic cloves.
Use your hands to gently combine the spices into the meat. Be careful not to overwork the meat.
Shape the seasoned meat into equal-sized patties.
Arrange the patties on top of the onion slices on the prepared baking sheet.
Grate three hard-cooked eggs into a large mixing bowl.
Put 1 teaspoon of grated hard boiled egg on top of each burger patty on the baking sheet.
Peel three large potatoes and grate into a large bowl.
Squeeze any liquid out of the grated potato.
Sprinkle the grated potatoes with ½ teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon oregano, ½ teaspoon black pepper.
Use tongs to top each burger with seasoned grated potato mixture.
Grate 150 grams of cheese into a bowl.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of each burger.
Bake the burgers in a 180°C/356°F oven for 40 minutes, or until cooked through.
Serve on a sesame seed bun with your favorite toppings!
