This recipe could be considered a failure. I guess. I mean… I loved it but I didn’t even try it on the husband because I knew he wouldn’t and the toddler declared the burgers too "oniony". Either way, I’ll still share as you can, at least, take the idea and make it your own by skipping the onion or even adding something else.
The idea is burgers in the oven. Simple, I know, but sometimes I think we forget there is more then one way to skin a cat. We could could easily grill these, or pan fry but sometimes I just like putting something in the oven and forgetting about it while I’m doing other things.
The husband did actually like his burger, the plain one, cooked in the oven. And we all enjoyed the fries and beans. So I guess dinner wasn’t a total disaster. :)
As for the video we lose the toddler about 3 minutes in. and it’s a bit long as I make the whole meal on camera. For that reason I posted how I made each item below. I hope it gives you some ideas.
- One large Baking Potato
- Kosher Salt
- Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Leave the skin on the potato and cut into fry like pieces. Soak and rinse in cold water for a few minutes. Pat dry with a paper towel and place on the lined cookie sheet.
Spray the tops with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with Kosher salt.
Bake for about 35-40 minutes turning at least once.
Open a can of your favorite beans. Drain a bit of the liquid and place the can in the oven with the fries.
- 8oz lean ground beef
- 1/4 of a small onion diced small
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- 1/2 of a small bell pepper diced small
- 1/2 cup oatmeal (40g) (Accidently used 30g in the video)
- 1 tbsp worceshtire sauce
- 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 egg
Mix all ingredients with your hand and form into 4 patties just over 3 oz each.
Place the patties on a rack placed over a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Bake for about 30 minutes.
