Goodbye grill, hello oven! These are the best way to make hamburgers for a crowd. Not only are they quick to prepare, but they taste amazing, too!

Sheet Pan Hamburgers

  • 1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced

  • salt

  • black pepper

  • 2 pounds ground meat

  • dairy free cheese slices, for topping

  • hamburger buns

  • toppings of choice such as lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, Glicks Ketchup etc.

Special Sauce



Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the red onions evenly on the pan. Shake on a bit of salt and black pepper over the onions.


Crumble the ground meat over the onions to evenly distribute. Press meat down to fully cover the pan. You can make these thin or thicker, depending on your preference. Sprinkle the top of the meat with more salt and black pepper.


Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes.


Remove from oven. Let sit one minute, then carefully pour off the remaining grease.


Place the fake cheese slices over the meat and return to the oven to melt the cheese for a minute or two.


Remove from oven. Use a spatula to cut square hamburgers. Serve with special sauce (mix all ingredients together and spread on the bun before topping with the burger) for the ultimate bite!

Can you do it without the fake cheese ? All these imitations from non– kosher food, like facon etc are not my cup of tea.

Although there are “Heterim” to use Pareve (substitute)ingredients with meat (Eg. margarine instead of butter, almond milk instead of milk), you have to put the substitute item next to it ON THE TABLE to make it clearly visible. Perhaps if you put the Pareve “cheese” right next to your burgers it would be OK. My personal feeling is that our community will survive and thrive without introducing and serving “cheeseburgers ” to our families. It will be especially confusing to the younger children. I’m curious if the Rabbonim who consult on Kosher.com have a Halachic opinion on this recipe?

I would like to preface this response by saying that I am not on the Kosher.com rabbinical board, but as the husband of the creator of this recipe and someone who has been learning halacha for the past 15 years I think I need to clarify what the correct halacha is. There are three different reasons that this recipe fits most if not all halachic parameters and is not an issue of Maaris Ayin:
1. The Issur of Maaris Ayin is only in a case where there is Derech Bishul (because then it is Basar V’Chalav D’Oraissa.) Although there is a Machlokes if roasting (which cheese on top of meat is considered) is Derech Bishul, M’ikar Hadin we pasken it is D’Rabbanan as seen from the fact that in Shaas D’chak and in a case of loss we are lenient. For this reason R’ Moshe Shaul Klien paskens there is no Maaris Ayin with fake cheese on meat.
2. Even when there are real issues of Maaris Ayin there are many poskim who pasken that writing that it is dairy free or announcing it will take away the issue of Maaris Ayin and it it will be Mutar. Which was done both in the video and in the recipe.
3. Also if the fake Basar or Chalav is Mefursam – meaning widely used there is also no issues of Maaris Ayin and there is only a machlokes on the extent of what is called widely used. I think everyone would agree with the popularity of the Beyond Meat or Impossible Burger, fake cheese or soy based cheese that it is widely used. For this reason as well most poskim hold there is no problem with non-dairy ice cream, rich’s whip or maragrine.
The fact that a child is not confused by having non-dairy ice cream dessert after a fleishig meal or bread like rolls on pesach shows that if you explain to a child that this is not an issue he will understand. Or even if he doesn’t, that has no practical halachic ramifications. You have the freedom to Mechanich your child as you see fit, but this has no connection to keeping halacha.
