You can add all your favorite burger toppings! Next time I’m going to try sautéed mushrooms and onions! 😋

Ingredients

  • Burger bowls
  • 1 pound ground beef (85/15 is recommended)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • Toppings
  • ¼ cup crumbled bacon
  • ¼ cup chopped pickles
  • ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Optional – ranch dressing and chives for garnish

Bowls of shredded cheese, bacon, and veggies

Substitutions

What I love about this recipe is that you can alter it however you’d like! Here are some alternatives:

  • Swap ground beef for turkey
  • Swap bacon for turkey bacon
  • Replace with preferred cheese
  • Top with favorite veggies or toppings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Crumble beef in a large bowl and add Worcestershire sauce, seasonings, and bread crumbs, then work together with your hands.
  3. Once combined, work the beef into each well of a muffin pan until it forms a bowl. The meat will shrink slightly while cooking, so I recommend ensuring the beef raises higher than the lip,
  4. Fill the bowls with the toppings of your choice, such as onion, bacon, and pickles. Then top with cheese.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
  7. Garnish with a drizzle of ranch dressing and diced chives.

Who says that burgers can’t be cute? Here are some of my favorite serving dishes!

Wooden Serving Board: For this recipe, I used my favorite MacKenzie Childs wooden checkered board and that I use almost daily. If you’re looking to add to a collection, Antique Hardware has this set of 3 that I get so much use out of. For a larger option, this large wooden platter from Target is so cute, especially the double handles.

For a smaller option, I’d also recommend this round wooden serving board, as well as this lighter Mango Wood board from Walmart.

White Platters: If you’d prefer a marble look, this white marble pastry board from World Market is beautiful. For a less expensive option, this faux white marble tray from Walmart is also a great choice!

Kitchen Links: I get asked all the time about the products in the background of my kitchen. Much of it is from MacKenzie-Childs, which I have slowly grown a collection of over the years! My favorites are this checkered chopping board that I used for this recipe, my black and white checkered teapot, and the gray and white checkered utensil holder. I also have this enamel canister that you can find in smallmedium, or large.

Can I Make This Ahead of Time?

Yes! Feel free to prep the Burger Bowls up to 1-2 days ahead of time and keep refrigerated.

Storing Leftover Burger Bowls

Store leftovers in a Tupperware Bin and keep refrigerated, where they should stay fresh for 2-3 days. Reheat at 30-second intervals in the microwave if desired.

Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy these Burger Bowls as much as we did! I know that sometimes I can get a little intimidated with grilling, so these are a great alternative! Have a great day, sweet friends!
