Healthier that frying and easier than grilling, baking pre-made frozen hamburger patties in the oven is a simple procedure that can feed the entire family in as little as a half an hour. Made of ground beef and pre-molded, these frozen patties may be baked and enjoyed on a bun with fries for a quick, restaurant-style meal or chopped and added to sauces or boxed pasta dishes to provide a savory, meaty flavor and a boost of protein.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet by spraying the sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Arrange frozen hamburger patties on the cookie sheet and place in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes.
Check the patties to make sure they are thoroughly cooked after 30 minutes by injecting one of the patties with the meat thermometer. Ground beef should reach an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees before it may be eaten safely. Allow the patties to bake as long as possible to reach this temperature.
Read the package for the pre-made patties as certain brands include their own procedures for baking patties in the oven. It is best to consult these instructions rather than those stated above.
The patties may produce a large amount of grease as they cook. Be cautious of this when removing the patties from the oven.
