How to Cook Beyond Burgers in the Oven

Beyond Burgers are typically fried, but if that’s not an option for some reason, you can certainly cook them in the oven.

I bought a bunch of them recently and experimented with this in order to find the ideal cooking temperature and time.

The general procedure is simple:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F
  2. Put thawed Beyond Burgers on a cooking tray (no oil needed)
  3. Cook for 12-15 minutes (or until an internal temperature of 165F) and remove

Here’s what mine looked like after 15 minutes (I like them well done):

There’s still a bit of pink inside, which is normal and what the package says to expect.

Detailed Steps to Cooking Beyond Burgers in an Oven

If you like your burgers a particular way, you may need to change things up.

Let’s go through your options after you preheat your oven…

Option 1: Pan or Tray 

I used a typical baking pan, a cookie sheet would also work.

You can use a cooking rack instead of a pan if you’d like, but put a pan underneath since Beyond Burgers release a lot of oil.

Option 2: Rare or Well Done?

To start with, if you’re using a pan, the side that is down will of course become harder/crispier.

If you want both sides to be the same, flip them after 6-8 minutes.

I prefer mine on the well done side, so I cooked my burgers for a full 15 minutes and flipped after 8 minutes.

Here’s what they looked like when I took them out:

In terms of taste, they tasted just as good as when I fried Beyond Burgers, so I consider this experiment a success!

If you opt to skip a bun, make sure to use a lettuce that doesn’t fall apart.
