A crispy coating mix is the secret ingredient that dresses up these burgers you bake in the oven instead of grill or fry. I like to use a sweet and spicy steak sauce for the best flavor. —Mike Goldman, Arden Hills, Minnesota

"As instructed below use Heinz 57 for the steak sauce and Shake n Bake Pork for the seasoned coating.

We tried this recipe this weekend and it was surprisingly good. A new way to make a burger. I could also see making the patties thin, freeze them, and then deep fat fry these for a beef tenderloin/chicken fried steak meal.
Next time I might add a small bit of Montreal seasoning or a bit of garlic to the ground beef."

"HELP! What is seasoned coating mix???"

"Actually, I misread the recipe and used all-purpose seasoning instead of a seasoned coating mix, like Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour. Anyway, it tasted really good despite the strong steak sauce flavor. This recipe works well for tough, old ground beef."

"I thought these tasted fine. Just a little too salty for my taste. Only change was adding about 3 tblsp of fried onions. I guess, I didnt realize how salty shake and bake was, because I have never purchased it before. I assumed that is what the recipe was asking for after reading the reviews. I was baking potatoes at 400 deg., so I just put them in the oven at that temp on the bottom rack on foil lined sheet pan. They were done, still, in about the time suggested. ty"

"I haven't made it because unless I am blind, it doesn't say how to make the seasoned coating mix. I supposed I could use Shake-n-Bake...?"
