You guys know I don’t do a lot of food posts — mainly because I’m a terrible cook but also because food isn’t that interesting to me — but I recently tried something that made me SUPER INTRIGUED and felt I had to share it.
Baked hamburgers! They’re a thing!
I’m a bit of hamburger queen. I don’t love a lot of homemade burgers because they’re never as good as restaurant burgers. Fast-food burgers are my favourite, so maybe that will change your opinion of my opinion. Maybe that’s why I like this method? Hmm.
Anyway, Darling Husband typically BBQs our hamburgers and I have nothing to do with the process, as BBQing and lawn-mowing are really the only two things for which I abandon being a staunch feminist. I don’t care to do either and would flounce my petticoats if you suggested I should.
(I am also not good about taking out the compost, touching the green bin outside, or doing anything to the grass other than sit on it.)
When I have made hamburgers for dinner, I’ve used our George Foreman and they’re fine. It’s annoying to wash that thing, though, and I tend to overcook the burgers because I get all paranoid about serving undercooked meat.

I do, however, bake meatballs in the oven. So last week I decided to Google “baked hamburgers” to see if it was a thing, and it was! Apparently baked hamburgers are actually juicier because the heat is distributed more evenly.
So if you want to bake hamburgers, here’s what to do:
