If it's too cold to grill or you don't have a grill, enjoy the taste of juicy grilled burgers made at home in your oven. These hamburgers are packed with flavor, juice and add a hint of mesquite smoke flavor. Placing them in your oven makes it easy to keep an eye on them when you're preparing other dishes on the stove or composing a salad. Think about this recipe next time it's raining outside, but you want a good burger.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In the bottom of the broiler pan, place two to three mesquite chips that have been thoroughly soaked in water. Dry chips burn too quickly in the oven.
Combine 1 lb. fresh ground beef with 1 Tbsp. of spice, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce and 1 Tbsp. barbecue sauce. Form the meat into four patties. When you form the patties, pack them loosely so that the burgers are juicy in the middle and crispy on the outside. Poke a hole or depress the middle to keep them from puffing up too much.
Place the hamburger patties on the top part of the broiler plate so that the mesquite chips are below. As the burgers cook, they will absorb the aroma of the mesquite chips.
Cook for 10 minutes for medium rare, 15 minutes for well done or until they are done to your liking.
Add cheese in the last minute of cooking to melt it onto the patty. Remove the patties from the oven, place on toasted buns and add your preferred condiments.
