If you're undecided between eating a burger or eating eggs, why not try combining both ingredients into a delicious bun? All you need is good quality ground beef, an egg and a round burger bun.
- About 225g of good quality minced beef
- 1 large egg
- Round burger bun
- Toppings (see tips below)
Part 1 of 4: Prepare the Sandwich and Toppings
Step 1. Toast the Sandwich
Cut it in half and reheat it in the oven or toaster.
Step 2. Prepare the toppings if you like
This step is optional, in fact, you can also eat the sandwich only with hamburger and eggs.
- Make a cheeseburger. Cut a slice of Gruviera type cheese to put in the sandwich; if you want, also combine two types of cheese.
- Make cold toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, onion, or gherkins. Wash and cut the ingredients before making the sandwich.
Step 3. Use a glass to make a hole in the center of the burger
This small hole in the center of the meat is essential for putting the egg inside. To make the hole, push the glass into the center of the hamburger and remove the central portion.
Part 2 of 4: Prepare the Hamburger Meat
Step 1. Flatten the meat
Make sure you have enough meat to prepare the burger and to make a hole in it for the egg.
Flatten the hamburger on parchment paper to prevent it from sticking to the kitchen table.
- Make the hole in the center of the meat with a glass. Grease the sides of the glass with oil or butter to prevent it from sticking to the meat and use it to remove the center of the hamburger
Step 2. Add salt and pepper
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and other seasonings to taste.
Part 3 of 4: Cooking the Hamburger and Egg Combination
Step 1. Put the hamburger in a pan previously greased with oil
Lift the meat off the parchment paper with a spatula to keep its shape intact.
Step 2. Cook the hamburger for one minute
Then, open the egg and let it fall gently in the center. Keep the egg in the center of the meat to prevent it from falling out onto the meat.
Step 3. Let the hamburger cook until it turns brown on one side, then turn it over on the other, being careful not to break the egg yolk
Step 4. When the hamburger is almost ready, add a slice of cheese
If you want to add the cheese as well, do it while the meat is still in the pan to make it melt better.
Part 4 of 4: Finish the Sandwich
Step 1. Season the bread
If you want, add condiments, such as ketchup, butter, mayonnaise, etc.
Step 2. Transfer the cooked hamburger to the bread
Prepare the slice of bread on a plate and gently place the hamburger / egg on it.
Step 3. Add more toppings
At this point, you can add lettuce, tomato or other cold ingredients. If you want, you can also add more ketchup or sauces.
Step 4. Serve the sandwich still warm
The flavor will be much better.
- If you want, you can make a leaner, lower calorie sandwich using minced turkey or chicken.
- If you want, add some bacon too.
- Mix the various toppings with the meat before cooking it for a tastier burger.
For a less caloric dish, use a non-stick spray to grease the pan instead of olive oil or butter.
