Baking Frozen Hamburger Patties
Preheat the Oven to 425° F.
Cover your baking tray in aluminum foil and place the wire rack on top. Spray with Cooking Spray to keep hamburger patties from sticking.
Place frozen hamburger patties on the metal wire rack, evenly spaced.
When oven is preheated, place the tray in the oven on a middle rack.
Cook for about 30-40 minutes until the center reads at least 160°F on an instant read thermometer and is no longer pink.
Add cheese during last 5 minutes to melt.
About ¾ of the way through cooking, turn the oven to BROIL and move the tray and oven rack up the uppermost setting in the ove right under the broiler.
Broil on each side for roughly 3 minutes until brown and sizzling.
Move back to middle rack position and turn off the broiler before adding the cheese or it will burn.
The residual heat in the oven will melt the cheese over the next few minutes.
Remove from Oven and Cleanup
Remove the tray from the oven when the burgers have reached an internal temperature of 160°F. Place the hamburgers on a plate.
Let rest for 5 minutes to cool and then serve on buns with condiments.
Once the metal wire cooling rack has cooled, place it in the dishwasher and then throw away the foil liner.
