Great tasting ultra-moist meatloaf burgers baked in your oven. Have a classic meatloaf sandwich today.
One of my wife’s favorite meals is a leftover meatloaf sandwich. In fact, it is the reason we make very large meatloaves… it is for the leftovers. So I thought I would “cut out the middle man” and just go directly to the sandwich phase.
I did my usual reading of multiple recipes but as usual, I liked mine best. Many recipes had ten plus ingredients and were just plain old complicating matters. So I copied and simplified some method but not ingredients.
A low five but still a 5 for both of us. We do love our meatloaf.
A lower fat burger is preferred for this recipe. Less fat drainage for the burgers to set in.
I initially wanted a grilled version but decided unless I made them ultra-dry, they would be almost impossible to keep together. While I used my Simple Old Fashion Meatloaf, if you have a favorite meatloaf recipe, substitute it into this method.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees convection or 375 conventional. Sorry, I forgot the ketchup for the picture.
Mix 2 pounds lower fat burger, 1 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup ketchup, one tablespoon seasoning salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, one egg and one medium or 1/2 large diced onion.
Divide into six portions and form into 4-inch burgers. Place on a large rimmed tray. Non-stick tray preferred but if you don’t have that cover the tray with a sheet of parchment paper.
Cover with a nice coat of ketchup.
Bake until internal temperature of 165. Right at 25 minutes for me.
