We’ve never finished burgers off in the oven before, but tried it tonight and it worked awesome. They turned out to be the most moist burgers we’ve ever had.
Makes 8 – 1/4 pound burgers
2 pounds ground beef
1 heaping Tbsp garlic powder
1 heaping Tbsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ground chipotle pepper
1/4 cup smoky BBQ sauce
1 small onion, finely minced
1 cup crumbled fresh bread crumbs
Whisk eggs, then combine all remaining ingredients, except meat. Next, add the meat to combine thoroughly.
Split meat into 8 patties. Cook on medium-high heat in oiled cast iron pan for 4 minutes per side. Put all burgers in one of the pans, and finish in preheated 350 oven (but with heat shut off when burgers are put in) for 10-15 minute till cooked through.
In the mean time, on med-high heat, put a couple Tbsp more oil in second pan, and using a pancake flipper, scrape all the yummy bits from the bottom of the pan, and fry up some sliced mushrooms and onion – seasoned with salt and pepper – to your liking.
Serve with your favorite condiments and buns.
