Baked Cheeseburgers

Most burger recipes call for cooking on the grill. These baked turkey burgers are a nice alternative if you don't have a grill or if it's too rainy or cold to grill outside. Turkey burgers can be dry; the ketchup in the burger and the BBQ baking sauce help to keep these moist and flavorful. You can top these with cheese if desired. Since some of my kids like cheese, and some don't I do a little of both as you see in this picture.

Baked Turkey Burgers

Preparation Time: 10 minutes Baking Time: 40 minutes

Burgers
1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1.5 pounds lean ground turkey

Baking Sauce
1 cup water
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

sliced cheese, if desired

Preheat the oven to 350'F. In a small bowl, combine all of the burger ingredients. Form the meat mixture into 6 equal patties and place them in an 9"x12"x2" glass baking dish.

Mix together the baking sauce ingredients and pour over the turkey patties. Bake uncovered at 350'F for 35-40 minutes or until thoroughly cooked (internal temperature of 165'). If you would like cheese on top, place a slice of cheese on top of each burger for the last 5 minutes they are in the oven, or place under the broiler to melt the cheese. Serve on buns or with sauce spooned over the top

Yield: 6 burgers
