Ultimate Burgers!

on March 7, 2012

Your life will never be the same after a bite of these delicious burgers! You will never want a plain old burger ever again!

Jason, my awesome husband, is a big fan of watching food network, and then convincing me to cook whatever he thinks looks tastey. This recipe was a combination of burgers that were made by Guy Fieri and Michael Symon. Bacon is mixed into the hamburger meat, it’s topped with cheese and pastrami (or salami works too), and finished with a poached egg. DELICIOUS! And, I’m going to share with you exactly how to make on of your very own 🙂

1/2 lb hamburger meat per burger (I use 80/20 lean meat. I know it sounds like a lot, and it is, but you only need to eat one burger and you’ll be plenty full!)
2-3 slices of bacon per burger
Italian seasoning
bread crumbs
1 egg per burger, plus one to mix into your meat
cheese- 2 slices per burger (we use American, but you can use whatever you prefer)
Pastrami or Salami- 2 slices per burger
Hamburger buns
Start by frying up your bacon, you’ll want it nice and crispy. Crumble.
Place hamburger meat in bowl, mix in crumbled bacon, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning to taste (about 1/4-1/2 tsp per burger), one egg (Yep, I use the whole egg, not just the yolk), and a sprinkle of breadcrumbs. Be careful not to overdo it on the bread crumbs, you’ll dry out your burgers.
Form hamburger patties, and grill to desired done-ness. Before you take them off the grill, don’t forget to put your cheese and Pastrami on top!
Meanwhile, poach you eggs. If you don’t know how to poach eggs, here’s a link to help, Easy Poached Eggs. And don’t be overwhelmed, it’s not that hard!
Plop your burger on a bun, and top with poached egg. Cut burger in half and watch the yolk spill, mmmm….. you don’t even need ketchup for this burger, the egg tops it off perfectly! Enjoy!!

Nothing goes better with an awesome burger than a beer! We learned the hard way that 2 burgers was WAY too much. One burger per person is plenty 🙂 Grill some up, and let me know what you think!
