As summer nears to an end, I cranked up the grill for some juicy burgers. These burgers however took on a different approach… some top a burger with lettuce, onions, pickles and tomatoes, while others just believe in a ‘vanilla’ burger… as for myself, I can go for all of those toppings, but tonight I decided a fried egg would also be a perfect element to cut through the meaty goodness!
A simple salt and pepper seasoning on the egg, a quick pan fry and it was time to rest this yolky beauty on this gorgeous piece of meat!
The building blocks of this perfect burger were simple and gracious… a single slice of cheese, slices of applewood smoked bacon, grilled onion and then… the star, the breathy fried egg.
Meaty, bacon-y goodness was almost sweetened by the creamy yolk that rushed down from the top of the burger like a volcano oozing lava…
What a perfect precursor to a Labor Day weekend feast!
at a low simmer…
