In a large mixing bowl, add all ingredients together. Mix well, be sure not to leave any chunks of burger not mixed. I use clean hands for this. Officially use a wooden spoon.
Place in baking pan and cover top with ketchup.
Place in oven and cook to 165 internal temperature (about 1 hour).
Remove from oven. Move to a serving plate.
