Pesto Bacon Breakfast Burger
this will make one burger...multiply ingredients as necessary for more
  • 1 English Muffin, toasted
  • 1 Grilled Hamburger Patty (80/20 ground beef)
  • 2 Tablespoons Pesto (jarred or homemade)
  • 1 Slice Provolone Cheese
  • 2 Slices Thick Cut Bacon, cooked to your preference
  • 1 Fried Egg, sunny side up
  • Pickled Red Onions
  1. Moments before burger is done grilling, place provolone cheese slice atop of the grilled hamburger patty and allow to melt. (30 seconds in the microwave post grilling will also do the trick)
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of pesto onto the top and bottom pieces of the toasted english muffin.
  3. Atop the pesto on the bottom half of the english muffin, place the provolone covered hamburger patty, crispy bacon, fried egg, and pickled red onions.
  4. Top with the other half of the toasted english muffin.
  5. Enjoy!
*ground beef, for hamburgers, i go no lower than 20% fat. so pick 80% lean 20% fat at the grocery.
**let formed patties sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before grilling.
*** i like just salt and pepper as my burger each their own.
****grilling hamburgers..high heat, flip only once, and do not ever flatten your burger with the spatula.
***** 5 minutes per side will produce a near medium burger...increase just a minute or two per side if you prefer medium-well to well done. the last minute of cooking, add the cheese and cover so it melts!
****** let the meat rest for about 5 minutes or so before digging in. let the juices redistribute.
