This is Elisa's mom's recipe for baked hamburgers.  They are so delicious that every time she visits she makes a double batch so we can freeze some for a quick re-heat dinner at another time.  This dish is perfect for taking over to a friend or family member who could use a little help when they are going through a rough time.  So yummy!

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp hot & spicy sauce (any variety)
