One of my favorite meals is a good old-fashioned hamburger.
That is, just a patty with a bun. No veggies, nothing else, just the flavor of the patty shining through. Now, every so often, I might throw in a slice of cheese (or maybe a combination of three like Munster, American, and Provolone…don’t knock it til you try it!), but by and large, I like my hamburgers simple.
Now, unfortunately, I don’t own a grill. We just bought a house and haven’t been able to buy a grill yet (but it’s on my Christmas list, for those wondering). But, I have found that I do not need a grill to make a classic hamburger. I can make it in a casserole dish! Yep, you absolutely can, too. It is just as delicious and if you really want the hamburger style, cut a piece out and put it in a burger bun.
This will not disappoint. It is juicy, cheesy (if you want it to be) and everything you would want in a burger. Five Guys Burgers and Fries ain’t got nothing on this dish! So next time you are snowed in or maybe you just do not have a grill like me, try this. Your craving will be satisfied and your mess will be much smaller.
