Tastiest Barbecue Hamburgers
Kid friendly. Family friendly and football tailgate friendly! What’s not to like? Moist flavorful burger patties baked in the oven then simmered in a delectable homemade barbecue sauce. Such a winning combination. I could eat myself silly with these burgers. Make them ahead and freeze some for future meals or pop them in a slow cooker to serve at a family and friends gathering. Betcha can’t eat just one! Or, if you are like me, I can barely finish just one and wish I could eat two! Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. While the burgers are baking, make the barbecue sauce.

Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.Take a 1/2 cup measuring cup and portion out 12 pieces. Shape out into burgers, slightly larger that a hamburger bun. Poke your finger in the center which keeps the burgers from shrinking up while being cooked.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Set aside. While burgers are baking make the barbecue sauce. Save all those delicious juices from the baked burgers and pour them into the barbecue sauce.

  1. I have kept this a secret for over 30 years. Time to let the cat out of the bag. People love me barbecue sauce and are always asking for the recipe. My secret ingredient is strong brewed coffee! Yes, that’s right! It adds a unique depth of flavor that is lacking is many sauces.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large, deep saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for ten minutes.
  3. Add hamburger patties and simmer for ten minutes. Serve on toasted ( or not) hamburger buns and stand back for all the accolades!
  4. This last time I served the barbecued burgers with my almost famous i.e. “Dan loves it” Squash Casserole and Sour Cream Cucumbers
  5. Again as in always, “Thank you” for your support and for stopping by today! Remember that your journey is only as great as you make it. So, make it count. Journey on! Hugs and much love from me, Karen, TJG
