I will set the oven at 350 degrees. It will be placed on a cookie sheet uncovered. How long do I cook it.

    About 1 hr 15 mins and then check it with a meat thermometer. Ground beef must be cooked until the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 160°F to ensure that dangerous bacteria are destroyed.

    That'll be 5-cents, please.

    Some people say 15 minutes a pound i prefer 20 minutes a pound or one full hour plus .

    Cut it in half after 45 minutes see if it's bloody if it's not drying out go for the next 15 minutes then check it again after one hour.

    Then if it's still not drying out a bit and you like a real crisp brown outside give it the extra 10 or 15 minutes.

    You don't want the inside to be bloody.
