Burger Bowls

For dinner tonight I decided to make something different… again.  

I recall making these or something similar a while back and decided to revisit it.  It is exactly as the title implies, a burger bowl.  I made “bowls” out of ground beef and then filled them with lots of good stuff and baked them.  A bun less burger if you will.


Here is what I started with.


I began by mixing the ground beef with the oatmeal, egg, Worcestershire sauce and the Sweet Baby Ray’s bbq sauce.


Once it was well mixed up, I divided the meat mixture in half and formed two balls from it.


I placed the balls in my prepared pan and began to shape the actual “bowls” by hand until they were the shape I was looking for.


I sprinkled about 1/4 cup of grated cheddar in the bottom of each and drizzled a bit of the bbq sauce on top of that.


For the filling, I added my chopped onion, peppers and mushrooms to my frying pan with about a tbsp. of olive oil.


I cooked them on high heat until they were just starting to soften. This only took a few minutes.


I divided this mixture between the two “bowls.”


I drizzled a bit more bbq sauce on top of this.


And then divided the remaining cheese between the two of them.


I baked them at 375 for about 45 minutes and served immediately.
