Stuffed, oven-baked hamburgers

I saw a recipe for oven-baked burgers in the 2003 edition of the Quick Cooking cook book. However, the only thing I had from the recipe was hamburger meat, so I improvised. These were awesome!!! Better than some burgers at restaurants.

Sorry for the pictures, I took it in the evening when my light is bad.

Kat's stuffed, oven-baked burgers (only makes two burgers)

2/3 a pound of hamburger
2 squares of cheddar cheese (cut off a block)
2 T barbeque sauce
1/2 t liquid smoke
1 t BBQ seasoning mix (I've had this for awhile and needed to use it up)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 panko bread crumbs

1. Mix meat, BBQ sauce, liquid smoke, BBQ seasoning and salt and pepper in a bowl. Flatten into a disk at the bottom of the bowl and use your hand to divide the disk into four equal sections.

2. Form each section into flattened patties. Put a square of cheese onto one patty and top with another patty. Pinch and fold the edges together until sealed. Make the other patty.

3. Flavor the panko bread crumbs with a little bit of BBQ seasoning. Coat the patties with panko bread crumbs.

4. Put patties on a lightly greased piece of foil on a baking pan. Bake in a 400° oven for 25-30 minutes or until done. Serve on whole wheat buns.

I hope you like these burgers. as much as we did!
