Egg Burger

We absolutely love eggs and, more often than not, our cooking-philosophy is “put an egg on it”. This burger is elevated by the richness of the egg yolk, and the burger bursts with flavor with each and every bite.

Egg

We like to use fried eggs on burgers to have that burst of yolk when biting into the burger. However, you can also flip the egg if you prefer to have less yolk on your bun.

Cheese

We like to use a mild cheese for the burger, such as gouda or Monterey Jack. Monterey Jack is our preferred choice since it melts very well and it’s a delicious gooey cheese.

Burger Buns

We cannot stress this enough - brioche buns are the way to go. Brioche buns take the dish to a new level. The sweetness complements the salty cheese and burger and adds a whole new layer of flavor to the burger.

What can I serve with an egg beef burger?

Obviously, we love fries. The thicker and crispier, the better! However, a lovely garden salad would definitely be welcomed on the side of this burger.

Ingredients

    Burger Sauce

    • ¼ cup mayonnaise
    • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    • 2 teaspoons sriracha hot chili sauce

    Burger

    • 1 lb minced beef or 4 burger patties
    • 4 toasted brioche buns
    • 1 sliced tomato
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 cup shredded lettuce
    • 4 slices Monterey Jack
    • 4 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

Instructions

  1. To make your burger sauce, add ¼ cup mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons of sriracha hot chili sauce, and ½ teaspoon of garlic granules to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. If you are using minced meat, shape your burger patties and sprinkle some salt and pepper onto the patties. Place a cast iron skillet or frying pan on medium-high heat, and use 1-2 tablespoons cooking oil if required. Once the cast iron skillet is hot, add the patties (if the patties don’t sizzle when touching the pan, then the pan is not hot enough yet). Cook the patties on each side for 3-4 minutes (medium cook) and add the cheese on top of the patties after the last flip. Additionally, cover the pan with a lid to help the cheese melt.
  3. Fry the eggs in the cast-iron skillet on a medium to high heat once the patties are cooked to your liking.
  4. Assemble the burger to your liking! We recommend adding some burger sauce to the bottom bun, followed by lettuce and tomato, the cheese patty and topped off with a beautiful fried egg.

Notes

  • For perfectly melted cheese and a professional fried-egg, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to the pan or skillet while melting the cheese and cooking the eggs. Once you add the water, cover the pan or skillet with a lid so that the water evaporates. Within a couple of minutes, you will have beautifully melted cheese and a flawless fried egg. This is one of our top tips.
