Baked Cheeseburgers Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, kosher salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika and chili.
  3. Gently press the beef mixture into an ungreased square 8-inch pan.
  4. Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 160 degrees F.
  5. If there's a lot of cooking liquid in the pan, you can drain some. I like to keep it and allow some of it to get absorbed back into the burgers as they rest.
  6. Top the cooked meat with the cheese slices. Return the pan to the oven and bake just until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to rest and set for 5 minutes. Cut into four squares and serve.
