| | John’s Eggs Benedict Burger

Author / John

I present to you one of the most dangerous meals I have in my arsenal. The reason it is dangerous is because you will not eat one serving. Last time I made these, I found myself at the store buying more ingredients as the kids couldn’t get enough of them. I go lettuce wrap, but a bun is a solid choice.


For the hollandaise sauce:
3 large egg yolks
1 Tbsp water
1 stick pasture butter, cut
Juice from 1/2 a lemon

For the burgers:
2 lb grass-fed ground beef
3 – 5 eggs, fried or poached
3 – 5 slices of bacon
English muffins, gluten free burger bun or lettuce wrap

This is an ad. Please consider our shameless self promotion.


Start cooking your bacon to desired crispness; I suggest extra crisp
Heat grill to medium-high heat
In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, whisk egg yolks with water, whisking vigorously, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes
Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice
Whisk in 1-2 pieces of butter at a time until melted
Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm over the doubler boiler, whisking occasionally and adding 1-2 tsp hot water if the sauce thickens too much
Season ground beef with a pinch of salt, black pepper, and Worcestershire
Divide ground beef into 3 – 5 patties
Cook on the grill 4-5 minutes each side for medium rare, or to desired done-ness
Pull the burgers, and let rest until assembly
Start toasting buns or muffin
Fry or poach your eggs
ASSEMBLE! Top your bun/muffin/lettuce with the burger, bacon, egg, and a spoonful of hollandaise sauce

Devour responsibly.
