Everyone enjoys a nice hamburger even if they don’t have the conventional mean to actually cook it. Not everyone has a grill so it is important to be aware of others ways to personally make and cook some hamburger patties from home. With that said, one great way to prepare the patties in the oven is by broiling them and this is great for preserving the natural juices inside the burger.
Setting up is pretty easy. First, set the oven to broil and let it pre-heat. It shouldn’t take that long really. While it does that prepare your hamburgers for the oven. I typically put aluminum foil on top of a cooking sheet or baking pan. Makes it easier to clean up later on. I’m also presuming that the your burgers are either store bought or pre-made by yourself earlier in the day. You can search the internet for some great hamburger patty recipes.
When the oven light comes on you should be ready to stick the hamburgers in the oven. Place them on the top or second to top shelf or at least it is a few inches away from the heat element. It should take about 9-10 minutes to fully cook the beef hamburgers depending on how thick they are. Be sure to rotate and flip the burgers 2 or 3 times for even cooking. You can check how done they are by checking the meats firmness (firmer = well done, soft = raw). If you’re unsure then check the meat by cutting it open. Get hamburgers to the point you’d like and go ahead and serve them. Now you know how to broil hamburger patties in the oven.
