  • Baking Tray

  • 4 Frozen Hamburger Patties
  • Salt, Pepper, Seasoning
  • 4 slices Cheese (optional)
  • Aluminum Foil


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.

Optional Broil

  • 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.
