The Lady’s Brunch Burger

Recipe from Paula Deen

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
2 tablespoons grated onion
House Seasoning, recipe follows
2 tablespoons butter
3 eggs
6 slices bacon, cooked
3 hamburger buns
3 English muffins
6 glazed donuts


Mix the ground beef, chopped parsley and grated onion together in a large mixing bowl. Season liberally, with House Seasoning. Form 3 hamburger patties.

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

While burgers are cooking, heat a non-stick pan, over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter. Crack 3 eggs into the pan. Cook until the yolks are just set and still slightly runny and remove.

Place burger patties on English muffins or buns, and if desired, on glazed donuts, as the buns. Top each burger with 2 pieces of bacon and a fried egg.

House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Good burger…rich, can’t eat the whole thing. Good one to share w\a friend.

In my younger days, I would frequently make something I called a “Breakfast Burger”.

Breakfast Burger

1 beef hamburger patty, cooked, (leftover from BBQ the day before) - reheated
2 slices of buttered toast on white bread (Wonderbread is best)
Strawberry preserves

Place a piece of toast, buttered side up, on a plate.
Spread ketchup over melted butter.
Place reheated hamburger patty on buttered, ketchup toast.
Spread butter and strawberry preserves on second piece of toast
and place it butter/preserves side down on the hamburger patty.

Behold the Breakfast Burger.

I still make it once in a while.
