Best Egg & Bacon Burger

1 egg
Cooking spray
1 burger patty
1 tsp. butter
Slice of your favorite cheese
Avocado slices and other optional vegetables (lettuce, tomato, red onion slices, etc.)
Crispy bacon
Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning
Oroweat Crustini Specialty Sandwich Roll (found at Albertson’s, made by BIMBO) or your favorite hamburger bun
Cook your bacon ahead of time by baking it or frying in a pan until crispy. Lay on paper towel to soak off access grease
Preheat conventional oven to the toast setting so it gets warm
Heat up your BBQ to medium-high heat or for indoors get your cast iron skillet hot, I did mine in a skillet this time
Add butter to hot pan and swirl until melted
Sprinkle both sides of your burger with steak seasoning to your taste
Plop the burger into the cast iron skillet, you should hear it sizzle
Cook your burger on one side for 3-5 minutes until the bottom gets browned, then flip. Once you flip your burger it is time to cook your egg. It is also time to lay a slice of cheese on top of the burger patty so it has time to melt
In a small pan set to medium heat, spray with cooking spray; crack one egg into the pan
Once the egg sides start to turn pure white, flip your egg over. You can turn it to low if you want an over-easy egg or stab the yolk with a fork if you want it over-hard
In the last couple minutes you are ready to shove your buns in the oven. Toast for 1-2 minutes depending on how crispy you like your buns
Assembling your burger is the best part. You get to create this piece of art. My husband doesn’t like vegetables but he does love avocado, meat, cheese, and bacon
On a plate, lay the bottom bun down first and add your slices of avocado, crispy bacon, burger patty, egg, and any additional vegetables, then finishing with the top bun. Cut it in half and serve with your favorite side dish. We used Bush’s Grillin Beans, Southern Pit Barbecue found at Albertson’s in a can. You can also try some of these other fun dishes below including BBQ bacon wrapped baked potato, Hawaiian Macaroni Salad, or Buffalo Chips
