Aunt Kathy’s Oven Burgers


These burgers are simple and delicious. My guy’s Aunt Kathy made these when I first met him. I recently asked for the recipe and added my twist (different seasoning & and a sauce.
Her version is made with mayo but you can replace the sauce with BBQ sauce or whatever you like. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.

Gooey melted cheese, savory special sauce… what could be better?!

2. Fry burgers on stovetop or grill until they are light pink in the middle not quite fully cooked. they will continue to cook in the oven.
3. Add sauce to top and bottom of burger buns, add a slice of american cheese on one side of bun and a slice of swiss cheese on the other side then place cooked sirloin burger on bun and top with a slice of onion & jalepeno (optional).
4. Wrap each burger in foil and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Just to melt cheese & cook onion slightly. I serve these with a cold potato salad or pasta salad and veggies or chips.
