- Preparing hamburger this way makes it different than a plain old hamburger. It's hearty and moist and the onion ingredient gives it a special flavor. The sweet-flavored sauce further enhances the taste. I serve these as an entree with accompanying vegetables or on a bun as a sandwich.
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons milk
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 pound ground beef
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
2 hamburger buns, optional
- In a small bowl, combine the onion, bread crumbs, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into two patties. Place in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish.
- Combine the water, brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, vinegar and remaining salt; pour over patties. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Serve on buns if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
ANOTHER BAKED HAMBURGER PATTIES :
3 lbs ground beef
3 cups favorite pasta sauce (can use more, my pasta sauce Kittencal's Italian Tomato Pasta Sauce and Parmesan Meatballs works well for this)
flour, for dipping
8-10 hamburger buns
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
- Flavor the ground beef with your favorite ingredients.
- Shape into about 8 patties.
- Coat the hamburger patties with flour.
- In a large skillet, brown the patties on both sides in butter, then arrange in the baking dish.
- Pour half of the pasta sauce over the patties, and spread the sauce with a spoon to cover the patties (do not worry if they are not completely covered with the sauce).
- Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, then cheddar cheese.
- Bake in a 400°F oven for about 25 minutes, or until patties are no longer pink.
- Serve the patties and the sauce on buns and sprinkle more cheese on if desired.
