A hamburger may be wheel shaped, but reinventing the wheel is hard. That didn’t stop us from trying out these Oven Baked Hamburger Steaks!
Hamburger is a tried and true meal. We’ve had so many burgers over the years. They’re simple, but they’re a crowd pleaser. Eventually though the deliciousness of burgers (or any food for that matter) wears off after being used in so many meals. So we decided it was time to take the burger, and spin it in a whole new light. To do that, we brainstormed a bit, looked through some recipe books, and soon enough we had our answer. These oven baked hamburger steaks still keep the crowd pleasing simpleness that normal burgers have, but the twist brings it into a whole new view.
By putting the burden of cooking onto the oven, these burgers become even simpler to make than normal burgers that require a close eye to avoid burning. All you have to do is brown the sides then let the oven do the rest! This saves a load of time and energy. These burgers even cook in their own sauce! How’s that for convenient? It takes a bit of thinking, but you can indeed reinvent the wheel.
After your burgers have spent their time in the oven, they’ll be good to go! No more worrying about condiments, or more importantly worrying about kids leaving the condiments out. Just pull out a plate and serve your burger. There you have it, a simple but effective dinner. Want something on the side that has a similar classic with a twist feeling? Try out these green beans with ham. They go in the slow cooker so they’re just as easy to make, and if you want an extra twist you can use bacon instead of the ham.
Reinventing the wheel doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. Sometimes the best ideas are right in front of us. We just have to look to find them.
