Burger Project – Breakfast Burger

Well Burger Project 2013 is taking a twist tonight.

I don’t know about you, but there are times I love breakfast for dinner. And for breakfast I often times indulge in dinner leftovers. Who doesn’t love cold pizza for breakfast? Or leftover Chinese tossed into a frittata? So with that in mind…I love bacon and eggs, with a side of biscuits and gravy. Oh my stars but that is a luscious breakfast to me. And on the dinner flip side, give me a great burger and I can have all the things I love on one plate.

This dinner has simple ingredients, but requires timing. First up, the ingredients.

Breakfast Dinner!

Breakfast Dinner!

So a pound of ground round, some breakfast sausage seasoning, eggs, bacon and yes a package of country gravy mix. (But I do make mine with milk and not water)

Before you start preheat your oven to 150 degrees. This is going to be your warming area. Mix the hamburger with 1 Tbs of the sausage seasoning. Form into 4 equal patties and let rest so the flavors can develop in the meat.  In a cast iron skillet fry up your bacon so it’s crispy. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel lined plate and place in oven to keep warm.  Next in the bacon drippings fry your burgers on a medium heat for about 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook another 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and place on warming plate and place in oven. Next cook up your gravy and keep warm. Using the same pan as the hamburgers were cooked in brown the hamburger buns cut side down and remove to plate.  In a non-stick skillet add 1-2 Tbs of butter and gently fry your eggs just till set. The yolks should be bright yellow and still liquid. As soon as they are done, take one burger, dunk into the gravy and place on toasted bun. Next add 2 pieces of crispy bacon and top with cooked egg.

And you will be eating a luscious, creamy with a salty crunch burger. When the egg yolk breaks over the burger it adds such a wonderful flavor and richness.
