Cooking a burger inside of itself is an old favorite among home cooks. Whether you are hosting a backyard barbecue or just looking for a new way to jazz up your hamburgers, this delicious technique is sure to please everyone at the table.
What You Need
The best part about cooking inside of a burger is that you don’t need a lot of special equipment. All you need is:
- Ground beef
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Cheese (optional)
Step 1: Make the Patty
Start by taking your ground beef and gently forming it into a patty. You want the patty to be about ½ to 1 inch thick. As you are forming the patty, season it generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. If you want to add cheese, you can put a few slices on top of the patty.
Step 2: Cook the Patty
Once the patty is formed, heat up a skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is nice and hot, add the patty to the pan. Cook the patty for about 4 minutes per side, or until it is cooked through.
Step 3: Place the Patty Inside of the Bun
When the patty is finished cooking, place it inside of a toasted bun. You can also add any condiments or toppings you want at this point.
Step 4: Wrap the Burger
Once the burger is inside of the bun, wrap it tightly in aluminum foil. Make sure the foil is not too thick, or else the burger won’t cook evenly.
Step 5: Place the Burger in the Oven
The last step is to place the wrapped burger in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the burger for about 25 minutes.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Once the burger is finished cooking, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before unwrapping it. Then, it’s time to enjoy this delicious burger that you cooked inside of itself.
Optional: Add a Special Twist
If you want to add a special twist to your burger, you can try stuffing it with some of your favorite ingredients. Mushrooms, onions, and other vegetables make a great addition. You can also try adding some bacon or jalapenos for an extra kick.
Cooking inside of a burger is an easy and delicious way to spice up your burgers. All you need is some ground beef, some seasoning, and a few minutes in the oven. So the next time you’re in the mood for burgers, give this fun technique a try and enjoy the delicious results.
As the great burger philosopher Bob Dylan once said, “A burger never has to worry, it’s fate is always delicious.”
