Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 20 mins

  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 8 hot dog buns, toasted
  • Mustard, ketchup, relish and sliced onions, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees . In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, milk, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and the garlic powder. Mix gently until just combined.
  2. Using greased hands, divide the meat mixture into 8 equal portions and shape each portion to resemble a frankfurter. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake until browned and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately in the hot dog buns along with the mustard, ketchup, relish and sliced onions.
  • Ground beef should never come to room temperature -- whether at home or in the store. Pick it up just before hitting the checkout line; the package should feel cold.
