Reviews for Baked Hamburgers
"This is a great, basic hamburger recipe that everyone will like. Add hot sauce for more zing, and any topping you'd like. We live in the Arctic, where it is not always possible to BBQ, and I don't like frying patties on the stove. This recipe gives us an option that still has that grilled feeling to it. My husband loved the sauce, and I like the fact that it bakes into the meat. Another reviewer commented that this is merely a meatloaf recipe, but what are hamburgers if not little meat loaves, if you think about it."
