I don’t know how or why I ever thought of this recipe for Meatloaf Burgers, but I’m so glad I did. Maybe it was a wish to change up a regular burger a little. You know, make it more interesting? And, without bragging too much, I have to say that this recipe is a real winner! It’s like a meatloaf sandwich on a bun without having the meatloaf dinner first. And, juicy! My goodness, it’s probably the most moist burger I’ve ever had. BeeBop though they were great, too.
These are quick and easy. And if your family likes meatloaf, they’re going to love these burgers.
1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tblsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 egg, beaten
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 medium bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup catsup
2 tblsp. yellow mustard
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
Preheat the oven to 350F.
I like to use half beef and half pork for this burger. You can use all beef if you prefer, but it’s the pork that gives it the extra moistness.
You want to chop your onions and bell peppers pretty finely. It’s just nicer when you don’t get a huge mouthful of onion or pepper.
Place all ingredients (except topping) in a large mixing bowl. Mix together being careful not to compact the mixture too much.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form the meat mixture into four patties and place them 2-3 inches apart on the baking sheet.
Combine catsup and mustard for topping. Divide evenly among the four patties.
Bake at 375 for approximately 20 minutes or until done through. Spread each toasted bun with 1/2 tblsp mayonnaise. Place one burger on each toasted bun.
