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.
