Aunt KathyS Oven Burgers Recipe @pinch

Gooey melted cheese, savory special sauce... what could be better on a burger?! Even if you don't enjoy the toppings that are added, the method for making these hamburgers is great. They're juicy just like a burger should be. Baking them in the oven, the cheese melts into the spread and drips everywhere (in a good way). The bun is warm and the bottom gets slightly crisp. The perfect foundation for the messy burger. A must-try for any cheeseburger lover! These burgers are simple and delicious. My guy's Aunt Kathy made these when I first met him. I recently asked for the recipe and added my twist (different seasoning & and a sauce). Her version is made with mayo but you can replace the sauce with BBQ sauce or whatever you like. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.
