It’s universally accepted that the best method for cooking hamburgers is grilling, but for those occasions when grilling is not possible, you can still have perfectly cooked burgers by using the same oven roasting technique I employ when I make these delicious Oven Roasted Gorgonzola Wild Rice Hamburgers. Oven roasting is hassle-free and results in burgers that are more juicy than ones cooked on the grill because with oven roasting, none of the juices are pressed out with a spatula the way they typically are with grilled burgers. Although the cooking method used in this recipe is a little unorthodox, it’s the burgers themselves that really stand out. Wild rice gives them a wonderful, earthy quality while Gorgonzola cheese and fresh rosemary deliver a big punch of flavor. These are definitely not your average hamburgers, and, best of all, they can be cooked to perfection in about 10 minutes.

This recipe for Oven Roasted Gorgonzola Wild Rice Hamburgers calls for organic, grass fed ground beef, but you can substitute regular ground beef if that’s what you have. More and more I’m choosing organic grass-fed beef over conventionally raised beef because research has shown that it’s healthier, better for the environment, and tastier than conventionally raised beef. It is, however, quite a bit more expensive so be sure to shop around. Warehouse stores such as Costo and B.J.’s are good sources for organic, grass-fed beef at more economical prices, and Trader Joe’s is always a good bet too.

Oven Roasted Gorgonzola Wild Rice Hamburgers are made with cooked wild rice. Normally I’d call an ingredient like this a “filler”, but that term is not at all applicable in this recipe because the wild rice in these burgers adds a distinctive texture and gives them unique appeal. A little-known fact is that wild rice is not actually “rice”, but a species of grass grown in lakes and rivers that produces edible seeds that resemble rice.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound organic, grass-fed, ground beef
  • 1½ cups cooked wild rice, cooled to room temperature (see notes #1)
  • ⅔ cup Gorgonzola cheese/3 ounces/85g
  • 1 small onion (3½ to 4 ounces in size), finely chopped

  • 2 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set a rack on the baking sheet so it sits above the foil with enough space to allow air to circulate around the burgers.

  3. Set patties on the rack and roast in the middle of the oven for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through.
Notes
To yield 1½ cups of cooked wild rice, bring ½ cup of uncooked wild rice and 1½ cups of water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until all water is absorbed.

  1. Made them last night. I added about 1 tablespoon of the bean liquid for binding. I was surprised by how the good texture is, and the flavor is amazing!
