You think this is weird, right? A fried egg on top of a burger? I know…stay with me here…
In Europe, you’ll often find fried eggs on top of burgers and sandwiches. It’s very, very popular. So, the other day, hubs asked if we could try a fried egg burger at home…I said yes but wasn’t sure if it would be a popular blog post or not…then that afternoon, I was reading my Shape magazine and they featured a fried egg burger!! I was so excited! They called it a Great Britain Burger (in honor of the Olympics) and it confirmed in my heart that others would love a fried egg burger too. We really, really enjoyed it. Weird, yes. Delicious, yes!
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons steak seasoning (or whatever seasoning blend you have that pairs nicely with beef)
1 onion, sliced
1 egg per person (this recipe should make 4 burgers)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Salt and Pepper
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine ground beef with steak seasoning. Divide ground beef mixture into 4 burger patties. Grill about 6 minutes each side.
Meanwhile, heat a little EVOO in a skillet and saute your onions until nice and caramelized (about 10 minutes total).
Once your burgers are about done, take your eggs and crack them right into a large skillet with a little EVOO in it over medium heat. Sprinkle some S&P in. Flip the eggs after about 2 minutes and let them cook another 2 minutes on the other side with a little more S&P.
Take each bun and top it with one burger patty, some onions and one fried egg. Serve with some ketchup on the side.
I kept the burgers super simple because I wanted the focus to be on the egg and not fancy seasonings in the burger. Try this. This is a man’s kind of meal (or a girl with an awesome appetite!). I think this will surprise you.
