Hey everyone! It’s Secret Recipe Club day today!
This month, I was assigned Ashley’s blog, Cheese Curd in
Paradise. Ashley is Mama from who loves to cook. Wisconsin
Since spring has finally decided to grace us with its presence, I wanted to grill something! Or rather, get everything prepared so my husband could grill – hehe.
I ultimately decided on breakfast burgers! A big beef patty topped with eggs and bacon? Yes and please!
You can use your favorite hamburger meat mixture for this (or even pre made patties, if that floats your boat), but I wanted to beef to mimic a breakfast sausage patty, so I added that recipe in as well!
My family loved these burgers! I think they are going to be a summertime staple!
Thank you, Ashley for a fantastic recipe!
Adapted from Cheese Curd in
1 lb ground beef
¼ cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp white onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp strongly brewed coffee, optional
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp brown sugar
¼ tsp dried sage
¼ tsp dried thyme
5 slices bacon, cooked crisp
5 slices swiss cheese
5 eggs, cooked over easy or to taste
5 hamburger buns, split
Softened butter, optional
Preheat the grill to medium.
Use your hands to mix together all of the beef ingredients (I use disposable rubber gloves for this task). Separate the mixture into five patties.
Place the patties on this grill and cook, flipping once, until done.
While the burgers cook, fry the bacon. Once cooked, move the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Drain most of the bacon drippings from the pan, then fry the eggs to taste. Set aside.
Split the hamburger buns, spread the butter onto the split sides.
Once the burgers are fully cooked (but still on the grill), add the buns, buttered side down, to the grill to toast and place a slice of cheese onto each burger.
Cook until the buns are toasted and the cheese is melted.
Place the burgers onto the toasted buns, followed by bacon and a fried egg. Serve hot.
