Breakfast Burger

Breakfast Burger ~ Everything you need for breakfast on a burger starting with English Muffins ! #Burger #BreakfastBurger #Breakfast #Brunch

Ever had a burger for breakfast ? No? How about for brunch ? We love a good well-built breakfast burger , or I should say for brunch as we normally have these on a Saturday morning at around 10 - 11am.

We also enjoy these breakfast burgers as an early dinner with some fries on the side, and now and then a small salad as well.

If you are wondering why I call it a breakfast burger - bacon, eggs aaanndd ... english muffins ! That's just about all breakfast goodies and I would rather have these homemade ones than some from a restaurant, because homemade is better and much tastier.

It is also much, much cheaper to make them myself as I compared prices {based on 8 burgers} of those available at chain restaurants and the price difference is about 75% more expensive than what I can make my own for. Also take into account the fuel you waste on driving to the restaurant, only to get back with a lesser quality breakfast burger.


8 Burgers


8 English Muffins, halved and toasted
2 Onions, thinly sliced
2 TB Butter
1 TB Brown Sugar
2 Large Tomatoes, sliced thickly
8 Beef Patties {I use fresh patties from our supermarket}
8 Slices Processed Gouda Cheese Slices {normal Gouda will also do!}
24 Slices Bacon
8 Eggs
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
Sriracha Sauce, optional


1.) Heat the Butter in a small pan - saute the Onion until soft - add the Brown Sugar - cook another minute or two, until caramelized.
2.) Cook the Patties in whatever way you prefer - indoors I use my George Foreman grill or we use the outdoors grill {you can also pan-fry or oven bake them}
3.) Cook the Bacon - oven bake at 200 deg C (400 deg F) for about 10 - 15 minutes, or pan-fry.
4.) Cook the Eggs sunny-side-up to your preference {I like the yolks soft and the white well done} - season with Salt and Pepper.
5.) Start building the Breakfast Burgers : slice of Tomato onto the bottom half of the toasted Muffin - caramelized Onions, Pattie, slice of Gouda Cheese, Bacon, Egg and Muffin top half.

Serve immediately with Sriracha Sauce, if using.

TIP: Keep the Onions and Patties warm after cooking - whilst the Bacon is being baked or fried, cook the Eggs - build the Burgers as the Eggs are ready if you do them in batches.
