Any time of day is the right time to eat a breakfast burger on toast covered in bacon, egg, and cheddar cheese!
Breakfast for dinner usually means eating traditional breakfast foods at dinnertime, but this breakfast burger puts a twist on the idea. Now you can eat dinner for breakfast too! Serve this luscious burger covered in cheddar cheese, a fried egg, and crispy bacon with fries in the evening or hashbrowns in the morning. You can’t go wrong either way! How do you like your eggs? I generally like mine over medium, which I thought I made up and was always embarrassed to say out loud when ordering at a restaurant. I was relieved to overhear other people order eggs that way, so I think it’s a real thing. Basically, I want a runny yolk (but not too runny) with the white cooked completely. Matt and the boys like over hard or scrambled, although I think the little one is coming over to my side of the egg fence. For these breakfast burgers, I made mine with a slightly runny yolk as you see here, and I made the others with a rubbery puck hard-fried egg. They are really easy to customize to everyone’s tastes. My kids just had the cheese and bacon with no egg at all. They are missing out! I hope you will try them the breakfast burger way, and let me know what you think!Print
- 8 slices thick bread
- 8 slices center-cut bacon
- 1 lb. ground beef patties
- steak sauce like A-1 or Lea and Perrins
- seasoned salt
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 4 eggs
- 2 tomatoes sliced
- mayonnaise optional
- First cook the bacon to your liking in the microwave, skillet, or oven. Set it aside.
- Toast bread, and place two slices on each plate. Spread mayonnaise on the toast if desired.
- I used pre-made beef patties as a time saver, but you can form your own if you prefer. Drizzle a little steak sauce and sprinkle seasoned salt over both sides of the patties.
- Spray large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium high heat. Cook burger patties to your desired level of doneness (about 5 minutes/side for medium). Place a cheese slice on each burger for the last few minutes of cooking until melted.
- Arrange tomato slices on one side of toast for each serving, and place burger patties on tomato slices.
- Quickly rinse skillet if needed, and return to heat. Allow any water to burn off, and then spray with cooking spray again. Cook eggs the way you like, and transfer a hot fried egg to each burger. Top with bacon and the other piece of toast, and serve!
