Juicy Smoky Burgers

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
2 eggs

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.

Mushroom-onion topping

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.
