We are going with a classic today: the cheeseburger, but with a little twist! We had a craving for something savory and with the weather slowly changing toward Spring, its time to start warming the grill. This is an easy burger recipe, but if you don’t have a grill it’s just as easy on your stovetop.
One thing we always love on our cheeseburgers is a fried egg! They always seem to bring everything together. We’re also huge fans of swiss cheese but feel free to change it out for something like cheddar, provolone or American.
A little tip when shopping for ground beef: going for ground chuck is the best way to go. Usually the best ratio for ground beef is 80/20 lean to fat. The fat will give your burger the most flavor and juiciness.
If you’ve never had an everything bagel, you are definitely missing out. This amazing bagel is topped with toasted poppy and sesame seeds, garlic and onions to create a wonderful rich aroma accompanied by a sweet and salty taste.
- 2 lbs ground chuck (80/20)
- 1 tbs onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tbs butter
- Heat grill pan or skillet to medium high heat.
- Mix ground beef and onion powder in a mixing bowl until well combined. Form ¼ pound patties, 8 total. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
- Melt butter in grill pan. Place burgers on pan and grill for about 6 minutes total flipping once to cook both sides. Meat should reach 160 degrees F. Add swiss cheese and allow it to melt on each patty.
- In a separate greased pan fry egg sunny side up on medium heat until tops are white but yolk is still runny; about 2 minutes.
- Place egg on burger patty and stack on another patty to create a double stack. Place on toasted bagel. Serve hot.
