How to Fry an Egg for a Burger:

Cooking over easy eggs is one of the fastest fried eggs you will make. You simply crack the eggs over the griddle. Make sure the white part sets before flipping egg.

The trick is to flip the egg slowly. The egg will have a runny yolk. Once egg is flip, cook on the other side for 1 minute then serve.

Recipe Tips:

  • Choosing Beef – Make sure to not use beef leaner than 85/15 for the best tasting burgers. 
  • Cook on a cast iron skillet – You can also cook the burgers on a cast iron skillet on the stovetop. 
  • Make Ahead of Time – You can easily make your hamburger balls ahead of time and place in the refrigerator until ready to grill.
  • Juicy Burger – Allow you burger to cook on the grill with very little flipping. I try to only flip the burger patties once to create a juicy flavorful burger.
  • Hamburger Buns – When I make these fried egg burger, I like to serve with good quality hamburger buns. The last thing I want is my hamburger bun to fall apart after putting the toppings on. Brioche bun is always a family favorite.
  • Toasted Buns – We recommend toasting the hamburger buns golden brown for the ultimate fried egg burger.
  • Season Hamburger Patties – If you use quality meat then you really won’t need much other than to seasoned with salt and pepper. But make sure you season the burgers well.
  • Serving – Make sure to serve with your favorite sides. A big green salad, a side of fries, or roasted vegetables would be delicious with this burger.

How to know when Hamburger Patties are done:

When we grill burgers out on the Blackstone we like to use Blackstone Tools such as a burger press to make sure the burgers are done. We prefer that the hamburger patties not be medium rare when finished cooking.

Cooking time will vary but the hamburger patties are finished cooking after about 5 minutes on each side.

Can you Freeze Cooked Burgers?

Yes, you can freeze cooked burgers. We recommend wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and then with aluminum foil. Store in a freezer bag and they will last up to 4 months.
