Oven Cooked Hamburgers

Oven cooked hamburgers are as delicious as they are easy. So ditch the grill and whip up a batch today.

My favorite way to make burgers these days is in the oven. It makes for the juiciest burgers that are cooked to perfection every time. Gone are the days of standing at the stove, getting splattered with burger grease and constantly wondering if it’s time to flip them.

Also gone are the days of charred hockey puck style burgers from the grill. Which also happen to be amine bombs for those of us on the FAILSAFE diet. (Always a good time.)

I didn’t discover the oven cooking method for hamburgers until we moved to our new house and were left without a grill and without a quick way to cook up a large batch of burgers. I scoured the internet and learned that not only is oven cooking a thing when it comes to burgers, but it’s a DELICIOUS thing that should be used often.

And since you’ll have a lot more time on your hands while the burgers are cooking all by themselves in your oven, you can do things like sauté leeks to top your burgers with, make a batch of pear and carob bbq sauce to serve on top, or even make some gluten free wraps to use as a bun like contraption.

So when burger night comes around again, ditch the grill and frying pan and whip up a batch of oven cooked hamburgers instead.

Oven cooked hamburgers are as easy as they are delicious. So ditch the grill and fire up your oven for your next burger night.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and cover with a wire rack. Spray or brush with canola oil.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl and combine with your hands. Don’t overwork or the burgers will get tough. Form into 4 patties and place on wire rack.

  3. Place burgers in the oven and cook for 20 minutes (for medium well). No need to turn since they are getting air circulating underneath them.

  4. Serve with your favorite toppings, sauces, and buns/wraps.
