Healthy dinner made easy. This is one of our favorite meals and takes no time to make. Grass-fed beef burgers made in the oven. Yes, in the oven. It is winter here in Minnesota. While some people grill in the sub-zero temps, I prefer to stay warm and fuzzy. As I type, our deck is covered in both snow and ice and it is freezing outside. Plus the starter on our grill isn't working and the last time I tried to light the grill, with one of those long lighters you use to light candles, I almost blew off my face. Seriously!
Burgers are also excellent in a good old-fashioned cast-iron skillet, but with the oven method, the clean-up is easier, you don't smoke up the kitchen and no grease splatter everywhere. Geez, you'd think I was lazy or something.
Top your burger with some healthy homemade Ketchup and Mayonnaise, a little mustard and bacon and YUM! If you really gotta have a bun, give my One Minute Muffin a try. Oh, and not pictured, are the juicy pickles I ate on the side. If fermented foods are your thing, try a side of sauerkraut with your bunless burger, that's my husband's favorite! I love a big pile of broccoli with my burger, but if your oven is big enough, Oven Roasted Cauliflower would make a nice side as well.
