We love a good burger and continuously experiment with new ingredients to find combinations we enjoy eating. This bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg recently made our short list of favorites. Below is our version, enjoy.
First we'll make the Aioli sauce. In a small bowl mix the mayonnaise, garlic clove, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and lemon juice. Once incorporated keep refrigerated until ready to serve. This period of time will also allow the flavors to develop.
Next we'll prepare the bacon. Cook thick cut bacon over medium heat until done. We prefer our bacon chewy rather than crispy. Set aside on a paper towel to remove any excess grease until ready to plate.
When ready to serve fry the burger until your desired temperature is reached. We use freshly ground beef from our local butcher and cook to medium rare. We always recommend cooking beef per the USDA recommended safe guidelines. When done let the beef rest and fry your egg sunny side up.
Now we assemble the burger. Slice a freshly baked hamburger bun in two and toast both pieces. Next place a generous spoonful of Aioli sauce on the bottom bun. Next we add green leaf lettuce followed by the tomato, beef patty, cheddar cheese, thick cut smoked bacon, fried egg, and finally the top bun. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
