Gerry's Sauced Hamburgers

"This recipe is an oldie but goodie and enjoyed by children and adults alike. This is an excellent 'make ahead' to have prepared and ready to heat when you know your B.B.Q. will be filled with adult fare. Make extra because you'll find the youngsters will have to share these burgers with the adults ...they can't resist despite the adult choices on the menu!"

Ready In:
1hr 5mins




  • Pan fry or grill the hamburger patties.
  • Drain patties on paper towel.
  • Put prepared patties in a casserole dish or a roaster.
  • Prepare Sauce (I usually double the recipe to have extra on hand) In a medium pot add the sauce ingredients and blend smooth with a whisk.
  • Cook gently over medium heat, stirring until heated through.
  • Pour over the prepared patties.
  • At this point you may cover and refrigerate until ready to heat for your meal.
  • If preparing this at mealtime, place in a 300 degree oven for 25 minutes or until nicely heated through.
  • I like serving marinated onions, sliced tomatoes, pickles and all the extras that make for a loaded burger.

  1. The kids like sloppy joes but I never know how much they are really getting to eat besides the bun and sauce. So I decided to make this, went over really well although I did leave out the sugar in the recipe.
  2. Move over McDonalds, there's a new "special sauce" in town, slightly sweet, a little bit tangy & quite delish! I'll use Gerry's method when I use pre-made burgers for a large group but I prefer recipe #92021 when its just the 2 of us, topped with the usual condiments & Gerry's sauce. Thanx for sharing!
  3. Wow!! Love the sauce, very similar to the one I use on my meatloaf - silly me, never thought to use it on hamburgers . I baked them and loved how it caramelized on the meat. Smelled fantastic, tasted better. Thanks Gerry! Made for Aus/NZ Swap 37.
  4. A GREAT sauce on hamburgers. I loved the flavor and will certainly try this again. Very Good!!!!! Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #31 Aug 2009 Event.
  5. Good hamburgers that were easy to make. Kept them in the crockpot,came home for lunch break, and had a couple for lunch. The sauce is what makes these hamburgers HAMBURGERS. Will make again. Made for AUS/nz swap.


<p>I live in Saskatchewan where hospitality and food go hand in hand. Community suppers, Beef Pit Barbecues, Church suppers, potlucks, tea and bake sales, booths at the curling and hockey rinks in winter, the ball games in summer. What is truly the spirit of Saskatchewan is that these events are for most part the efforts of community volunteers sharing their time as well as their best make and takes. Small communities along with the larger centres across the province are well known for their turkey suppers, cabbage rolls, perogies and overflowing dessert tables. Homemade of course! <br /> <br />I love preparing meals for my family and friends and in the sharing of good recipes be they mine or that of another. My posted recipes are recipes that are family favorites. My reviews here on Zaar allow that I have been most fortunate in the choosing of the recipes I have made. Without doubt we all love those over the top desserts and dishes to serve on special occasions and for those fives are a given. For me equally important are the recipes used in the daily meal preparation. Recipes enjoyed by my family be it a simple soup, salad or casserole are right up there with the 'over the tops' and share equal billing. Yes five star ratings ... if my family enjoyed, I would serve to invited guests, take to a pot luck, coffee hour or bake sale. <br /></p> <p>Aside from cooking and baking I admit that my interest in gardening exceeds that of the norm. I collect cookbooks, my favorites being the community and church cookbooks that have everyone sharing their favorite recipes. Enjoy yard sales on occasion but tend to keep my hands in my pockets, cannot completely resist when it comes to the glassware, baskets and of course cookbooks. I take great pleasure in reading with non fiction being my first choice when it comes to the choosing.</p>
