Good Morning Burgers

I LOVE BURGERS!!!  There, I said it and I own it.  I could eat burgers every day (and for several years I actually did).  So when I am at home I like to play with ingredients and create my own.  Now in full disclosure, this specific recipe was inspired (heavily) by the meal plan from Core De Force from Beachbody with a couple of modifications to glam it up a bit.  Enjoy!!

Good Morning Burgers (aka Buffalo Breakfast Burgers)   

Ingredients

img_4472

  • 1 lb Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef (85/15)*
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Jalapeno diced (with seeds if you like it spicier)
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 Egg
  • Butter Lettuce
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme

*Substituting for Bison is an awesome idea, in fact I actually prefer it.  Turkey…..not so much.

Instructions

  1. Dice the Jalapeno pepper and remove ribs and seeds (can be included if you like things a bit spicier)
  2. Combine the ground beef, jalapeno, Worcestershire sauce and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl.  Mix until well blended (just get in there with your hands).
  3. Separate and roll the mixture into either 4 equal parts (think meatballs) for burgers or 8 equal parts for sliders.  Sprinkle salt & pepper on meatballs.img_4476
  4. Cook bacon to desired doneness in either a large cast iron skillet or griddle over medium high heat.  Set aside on paper towels to drain.
  5. Wipe pan or griddle to remove bacon bits but not all grease.
  6. Place burger patties in preheated pan (seasoned side down) and let sear for 3 minutes.  Season with salt & pepper.
  7. Place a non-stick skillet on medium low heat on the cook top.
  8. Flatten burger patties with a spatula and cook for an additional minute.
  9. Flip burgers and continue to cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  10. Spray the non-stick skillet with cooking spray and add egg.  Let egg cook for 3 minutes (instructions are for easy side up, if you prefer your eggs more well done, flip and cook longer but a runny yoke is divine in this dish).
  11. Remove burger patties from grill and remove egg pan from heat.
  12. Plate burgers on either lettuce leaves or buns of your preference and top with 2 pieces of bacon and fried egg.
  13. Enjoy!!
