Why KJ Loves
Sheet Pan Cheeseburger and Potatoes
Who doesn’t love a one-pan meal?! I love this recipe because it’s so fun and nostalgic, all while getting dinner on the table in one swoop. The perfect weeknight meal!
Sheet Pan Cheeseburger Ingredients
The base of the sheet pan cheeseburgers. I recommend 85/15 beef for the best results.
Adding an egg to the burger mix helps bind all of the ingredients together.
This adds just the right amount of tang and extra depth to the burgers.
This is a simple way to season your burger mixture without bringing out all the spice jars! I love the layers of flavor it gives.
Cooking the burgers with a pad of butter on top keeps the burgers juicy and moist while they are roasting.
You can’t have a cheeseburger without cheese! Use slices of classic American cheese, or opt for cheddar. Or, you could go for something completely different like pepper jack, Havarti, or gouda!
Sheet Pan Potato Ingredients
Baby Yukon gold potatoes
Quarter the potatoes for quick cooking so the potatoes and the burgers are done at the same time.
Tossing the potatoes in thyme gives them just the right amount of extra flavor without being overpowering.
How to make cheeseburgers in the oven:
First, mix up the burger ingredients and form burger patties.
Cut up the potatoes in quarters and toss them with oil and dried thyme.
Arrange the potatoes on the other side.
Cook the food for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, add the cheese on top of the burgers and put them back in the oven for another five minutes.
How to Meal Prep Sheet Pan Cheeseburgers
It’s easy to meal prep portions of this meal. Prep and form the burgers in advance and store them in the refrigerator for a day or two.
Then, when you want to make this meal, all you have to do is prepare the potatoes and place them on the sheet pan with the burgers.
I don’t recommend cutting the potatoes up in advance as they can turn brown. No need to peel them, though!
Serving Sheet Pan Cheeseburgers
Use whatever kind of cheese your heart desires. Turn up the heat with some spicy pepper jack! Or, make your burgers a bit funky with some Havarti.
Serve these sheet pan cheeseburgers hot with all your favorite cheeseburger toppings! Buns, ketchup, mustard, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce—you name it!
Or go bunless. Your call.
If you want an extra bit of flavor, grab some bottles of premade sauce at the grocery store—aioli sauce, bbq sauce…have fun with it!
