Bronto Burgers

Last Updated on

We love grilled food. Unfortunately, we don’t have a grill and my husband is not one of those guys that has the thrill to grill. So we make our “grilled” foods indoors. Sometimes we use a small George Foreman grill, but usually I just rely on the stove top or oven.

So today, in an effort to ease the process, make something a little different, and pay homage to the Flintstone’s for some unknown reason, I decided this would be a fun twist.

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • Toppings of choice
  • 1 large, round loaf of bread (Sourdough, etc.)


  • Place ground beef in a large bowl. Add seasonings and mix well with hands. Form into one large patty, about 9 inches across. Bake at 375 degrees for one hour. Or cook on the stovetop of grill over high heat, for about 15-20 minutes per side.
  • Cover with cheese and cook an additional 5 minutes, until cheese is completely melted.
  • Cut bread in half like a hamburger bun. Place burger on bottom bun. Pile toppings on top and cover. To serve, cut into wedges.


You may notice that my burger is bunless. I knew what I wanted and I can visualize it perfectly. Unfortunately, our grocery store did not have any round loaves of bread today and I didn’t have time to make a homemade loaf. We ended up cutting the burger in half and piling onto a wide loaf of Italian bread. It tasted fantastic, but I didn’t get the huge burger look I was shooting for.
