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.
