the Ingredients

20171005160733 Bacon And Egg Burgers With Cheddar 960


  • 1 pound ground chuck (80% lean)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese, each about 1 ounce
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split
  • 4 large eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices tomato


  • 01 In a medium bowl mix together all the patty ingredients with your hands. Gently shape the mixture into four patties of equal size and about 1 inch thick. With your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 1 inch wide in the center of each patty to prevent it from doming as it cooks. Refrigerate the patties until ready to grill. 
  • 02 In a skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the skillet and reserve for another use or discard.
  • 03 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (400° to 500°F).
  • 04 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the patties over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to medium doneness (160°F), 9 to 11 minutes, turning once. During the last 30 seconds to 1 minute of grilling time, place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt, and toast the rolls, cut side down, over direct heat. Remove from the grill.
  • 05 Return the skillet to the stove over medium heat and warm the bacon fat. Crack the eggs into the skillet, turn down the heat to medium-low, and cook until the whites are just firm and opaque and the yolks have begun to thicken, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip the eggs over and continue to cook until the yolks are cooked but still slightly runny, 30 seconds to 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 06 Build a burger on each bun with two tomato slices, two bacon slices, a patty, and an egg. Serve warm.
