Meatloaf Burgers With Quick Ketchup

Source: Everyday Food, May/June 2003


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons crushed tomatoes in sauce or ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper

For the Ketchup

  • 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes in sauce
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons light-brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • Pinch of ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Brush a baking sheet with oil; set aside. Make the burgers: In a medium bowl, mix beef, onion, parsley, breadcrumbs, egg, tomatoes, mustard, Worcestershire, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper with your hands, just until combined. Do not overmix.

  2. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions. Form each portion into a 4-inch patty. Place on prepared baking sheet. Transfer to oven; bake, flipping patties once, until cooked through, about 14 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, make the ketchup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar, and cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon ketchup over meatloaf burgers, and serve.

    These are delicious and very moist. The quick ketchup makes it feel gourmet. Great way to have burgers without heating up the grill. An awesome twist on plain old burger.
