From freezer to oven, these baked burger patties are perfect every time! When you purchase ground meat on sale at the store, take it home and freeze it into burger patties. This makes weeknight meals easy to put together.
With 2 pounds of ground beef, use a ½ cup measuring cup and scoop out some beef, and form into burger patties. Place on a parchment lined baking pan. Freeze for at least 6 hours.
Transfer to a gallon size freezer bag for easy storage. Cut the parchment paper around the patties, and stack one on top of each other. The parchment paper ensures they won't stick together.
To bake from frozen, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then lay the grill rack on top. Line your patties on the grill rack (however many you want to bake), season the top of each patty with your favorite seasonings, and place in the oven frozen.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. If you want to add cheese on top, lay a piece of cheese on each burger patty, then place back in the oven for 3 minutes.
