Slow Baked Burgers with onions and cheese.

Slow Baked Burgers

Burger patties cooked on the stovetop tend to splatter and make a mess of the stove. Looking for a simpler and cleaner method of cooking burgers I switched to baking them. Even when cooked until well done the patties do not dry out.  The small amount of cheese is essentially a condiment and can be omitted.

  • Jelly roll pan
  • Baking parchment


  • 1 pound grass fed ground beef.
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced into rings.
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil.
  • 1 ounce hard cheese such as Manchego, thinly planed.
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste.
  • ! teaspoon herbs of your choice, I used a fajita seasoning blend.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenhiet.
  • Line jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  • Mix ground beef, salt, pepper and seasoning and divide into 4 equal balls.
  • Make loose patties on the parchment paper.
  • Brush the onion rings with the olive oil and divide them over the top of the patties.
  • For well done patties bake on the middle rack for  20 minutes.  Experiment with less time for medium patties..
  • Put the cheese slices on top of the patties and bake 2 more minutes.
  • Serve immediately.

These are also good with chopped fresh garlic chives and winter savory instead of fajita seasoning.

Grass fed sharp cheddar cheese can be substituted for Manchego.
