The Indoor Burger

Dear Suzie Foods,

How do you cook a burger inside?

Dear Mrs. Z,

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Heat a metal handled skillet over medium high on your stovetop. (No plastic or rubber 'cause it's going in the oven.) Spray some oil spray in the pan. Not a lot, just enough so your patty doesn't stick. Turn on your fans. When the pan is super hot, put your patty in it. Brown it on one side. Probably 4 or 5 minutes. Flip the burger over. Add any toppings like mushrooms, onions or tomatoes. Stick the pan in the oven. Finish cooking the burger for about five minutes. More for a bigger burger, less for a little one.

USE AN OVEN MITT to remove pan. Put the burger on a plate. Let it sit for three to five minutes. Then eat the bugger!

Let me know how it turns out!

Dear Suzie Foods,

Burgers were delicious! Mmm Mmm Mmmmm!

Thank you for saving my dinner. Silly snow covered grill. Xoxo

Below are some pictures from when I made my own Indoor Burger.



I'm glad I could help Mrs. Z get her burger fix without having to defrost the grill. So how do you cook your burgers?

  1. We use a small, (just right for two burgers or two chicken breast halves) double sided electric griddle made by Proctor Silex. Plug it in, let it heat for about two minutes (you'll hear a little click when it reaches proper temperature), place your two burger patties on the bottom half, close the lid. Grease drains out to a little catch pan underneath. Burgers are done in about 4 minutes, nice and crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside.

    Clean up is simple. It's non-stick so you can often just clean it with a dish rag. Otherwise hold it under hot running water (just the griddle section) and use a soapy brush.

    Also excellent for chicken breast and pork chops. Haven't tried fish fillets on it.

  2. Yummm. I need a pan I can put in the oven. I keep seeing recipes for it.

  3. I would love to try this for chicken too...I always burn it on the outside and the inside isn't finished cooking. Great idea!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!
