Sunday Morning Burger

No, this isn't meant to be eaten for breakfast... however, it wouldn't be a bad idea. I just think this whole concept of a burger came out of pure adaptation for what was available in my fridge. And seriously... every time I top something with an egg (whether poached or fried), it's been absolutely delicious. This is no exception... I highly recommend you try this... like, now.


1 lb. ground pork
1 Granny Smith apple, grated
1 onion, grated
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon ground sage
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg/burger patty
cheese (I used slices of Velveeta)
Kaiser rolls
margarine or softened butter
1 teaspoon olive oil

In a medium bowl, combine the ground pork, apple, onion, bread crumbs, sage, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined. Form into 4 good sized patties. You can probably make 8 thinner patties if you wanted to, but I'm a fan of a big juicy burger.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Heat a large oven proof skillet under medium heat and add olive oil. Brown the patties on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side. You don't want to cook them all the way through, just get a nice crust on the outside.

Place skillet in oven and cook for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, you can fry your eggs. I did mine one at a time and I like them over-easy. You can cook them up any way you wish, but make sure you have a nice oozy (but still done) yolk!

Open Kaiser rolls and butter both sides. Place in oven for about 5 minutes to toast.

To assemble burger, place patty on bottom bun, top with egg, then cheese and cover with top bun. In my opinion, this doesn't need any condiment. The oozing egg is just what it needs and the burger is one of the juiciest burgers I've ever eaten.

This was absolutely wonderful. This to me, is like a sausage, egg, and cheese muffin to the extreme. McDonald's has nothing on this. This. Is. Great. Try it now! Enjoy!


  1. yum. love the runny egg and the apple in the burger patty. And burgers can make wonderful breakfast on Sundays, depending of course on what Saturday night has brought

  2. Woo hoo, what a fun and calorific way to start a lazy Sunday LOL, I like it!
    *kisses* HH

  3. Agreed... what a killer morning burger! My favorite -- the egg of course. I'm predicting my family is going to love this.

  4. This is a tasty burger! I could eat it in the evening!

  5. I wouldn't feed that burger to my DOG!

    And I am the senior advisor to the website "Serious Eats". You bloggers make me sick that's for sure.

  7. wow... that's pretty harsh. I may not be a "professional" chef... and i may not be so serious about my eats... but I'm doing something I love and sharing it. If it makes some sick, so be it, and for those that always give positive feedback... I adore you!

  8. Now I know what I'll be making for my boyfriend on Sunday after the rather heavy Saturday night out we have planned!

    And I'm so glad to see someone else is of the same idea of "putting and egg on it will make it better" as me!
