"The first time I made these was about 8 years ago through a tag game named "Everyday is a Holiday" by nochlo back in the old site . Since then, I've made many burgers but these have stood out amongst the many and the funny thing is these are the simplest and ever so easy to make. They're delicious, they stretch making it wallet friendly and a smart weeknight option. I've made a bit of a tweak to our liking."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2

Mix first 7 ingredients (beef through pepper). DON'T add the Montreal seasoning, that's for later.

Step 3

Place beef mixture into an ungreased 10x13 pan and spread evenly edge to edge.

Step 4

Prick with a fork several times throughout. Sprinkle with Montreal seasoning, to taste.

Step 5

Bake 10-12 minutes until juices are clear then pour off the grease, by tilting pan carefully.

Step 6

Cut immediately into square patties to proportionately match the size of the buns, top with cheese and add desired toppings as suggested. In addition to the suggested toppings, we've had them plain just with cheese, topped with bbq sauce, bacon, lettuce, yada, yada, they are always delicous.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I have never thought of doing one giant burger, nor have I tried cooking it in the oven! This was so much fun to prepare and serve. It was super tasty, too. I only had 1 lb. ground round, so I used a 9x9 baking pan. My burger was cooked well done because I forgot to lessen the time based on the smaller amount. No matter, these were fun to serve and gobble up! I served ours with mayo, ketchup, mustard, bread & butter pickles, bacon, and lettuce. Yum! Thank you!

What a wonderful surprise these burgers were! Not grilled or fried, but still very flavorful! I pulled them out of the oven and topped with sliced cheese and bacon, then let the cheese melt before serving. Delicious!! Only thing I'd do is remove them to a plate covered with papertowels to soak up the grease that doesn't get poured off. The flavor was great! Thanks for sharing an easy weeknight meal!
