Oven Roasted Hamburgers Burgers Easy

Da Bomb Oven Roasted Hamburgers

When I told my lil’ sis about how good these Bomb Oven Roasted Burgers are, she asked, “What magic is this?” I was skeptical at first, too, when my son-in-law made them for us. I’m looking over his shoulder, right? You’re Baking Hamburgers? You mean broiling? No. Baking? Hmmm.

Sometimes “hmmm just means whatever”. In our family, hmmm has certain meaning & is not to be used lightly. It means one doesn’t want to question further so as not to appear to judge, belittle, make uncomfortable or discourage you, but I don’t get what you’re doing and why, why, why you would do that! There may, perhaps, be a subtext of “you idiot” floating around in that hmmm.

I had to take that “hmmm” back once I tasted his Oven Roasted Burgers. (Doesn’t Roasted sound better than baked?)

I spent some time in Georgia when the kids had the new twins…and of course, one of the perks of visiting anyone? Learning their favorite recipes and techniques. My daughter taught me to make Simply the Best Yogurt, Ever and shared her in law’s favorite Tuna Casserole. My son-in-law outshone her, though (sorry, Sweet Pea) with his Oven Roasted Burgers.

As you might imagine, with two adorable grandchildren already, and now, new twins, he’s has had to step up to keep things going. You know how some guys (not mentioning any names) have the “one” dish they make? Not so, here. S.I.L. has developed skills. What can I say, the guy has multiple grills, bbq’s and a smoker. We had his Smoked Pork Butt one day and Ribs another, all made with his own rubs and sauces.

But his burgers he does indoors – in the oven. You heard me: burgers in the oven made by my multiple barbecue owning Son in Law. And no, they don’t taste like meatloaf – what these Bomb Oven Roasted Burgers are is perfectly cooked, juicy and succulent, caramelized on the outside, no mess, no fuss burgers. In short, a miracle.

Best Oven Fries EVER

Bomb Baked Potato Wedges – Best Oven Fries EVER

I’m not a big burger eater, mostly because I always think they should taste better than they do (and then there’s the red meat thing) but these deliver! I had to recreate them once I got home, they were that good. I’ve already made them this week but went a bit smaller than my S.I.L.’s huge 1/2 pound Steak House Style burgers. I’m making them this weekend for company on home-made Pretzel Buns. Oh, yeah…

I can’t imagine anything better to serve my Oven Roasted Burgers with than my Bomb Baked Potato Wedges and homemade Cole-Slaw. You might want to try a little Red Onion Marmalade or my to die for Bacon Bourbon Jam as a condiment. There are links for these items (and others) at the bottom of the page.

Oven Roasted Hamburgers Burgers Easy

Juicy, succulent, caramelized oven roasted (baked) burgers. No mess, no fuss, no bother and perfectly cooked.

  • Author: christopher hess
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 - 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 - 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 1/3 pound of ground beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 slices cheese (optional)
  • condiments/add ons of your choice
  • buns


Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place oven rack in the middle position. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and add a kitchen rack 3/4″ above the pan. If your rack doesn’t have this clearance, roll up four balls of foil to use as “legs” and place one in each pan corner for the rack to rest on.

Gently break ground beef up in a bowl, sprinkle with seasonings and mix lightly, trying not to compress or over handle the mixture, which will make tough burgers. Divide into equal sized lumps (1/3 pound or 5.3 ounces if you wish to weigh.) Form equal sized patties about an inch thick and 3 1/2 to four inches or so across.

Place hamburgers on the rack, and place in oven. Place a thermometer probe horizontally in the largest burger (if there is one) with the end of the point in the center. Cook until hamburger registers desired temperature, 15 to 20 minutes. See note on timing.

The official “safe” temperature for a hamburger is 160 degrees. If you trust your butcher, cook them to the desired doneness in the center. We like ours at 143, which is just slightly pink in the middle and took slightly under 20 minutes in my oven.

  • rare: 125 degrees (dark purple-red, just warm, tender)
  • medium rare: 135 degrees (bright purple-red, warm, tender, very juicy)
  • medium: 145 degrees (rich pink, yielding, slightly tender, juicy)
  • medium well: 155 degrees (tan with slight pink, firm, some juice)
  • well: 160 (tan to brown, no pink, chewy, little if any juice)

If using cheese, add at about two degrees before the hamburgers are done to your liking. If using more than one slice or kind of cheese, it makes sense to make the cheese a bit thicker in the center (fold one of the slices up a bit)…


  • Essential Equipment – a rack and preferably a probe thermometer although an instant-read thermometer will work in a pinch but will require constant checking.
  • A very lean ground beef makes these dry and mealy, use 75 to 80 percent chuck or your beef mix of choice. This is even more noticeable in larger burgers.
  • If you’re used to adding a “dimple” in the middle of your burger when you make them, no need to do that here; the dimple just stays there.
  • Use a thermometer the first time and time them. (Set a timer for 30 minutes, when done, note how many minutes are left and subtract for your total time.) Then use beef with the same fat content, make the burgers the same size & use the same oven temperature, and just set the timer with no worries.
Notes on Oven Temperature for Oven Roasted Burgers:

These burgers can be roasted at a range from 400 to 450 degrees if you need to vary the oven temperature to allow for sides being cooked at the same time. The timing will vary to get the correct internal temperature.

It makes sense to cook larger (1/2 pound) burgers at the lower end of the range so the outside isn’t overdone before your preferred inside temperature is reached.

  1. Googled a recipe and came up with this. Followed it (almost) exactly just didn’t have the worcestire. Most tender, juicy and flavorful burger ever. Used freshly ground beef from Whole Foods as its not all compressed and mushed up. Thanks for a great recipe!!
    My kids said they are happy to have these over any restaurant burger any day 🙂

      Hi Judy, I’m so glad you guys liked this and it was so nice of you to check back and let me know! I think these burgers are great and I didn’t think to mention that good ground beef, not the beef that’s all compressed in the package or a tube works so much better for burgers!! I’m glad you did!
