Egg in a Hole Burger

It’s the burger that everyone’s talking about! Cut it open to reveal a fried egg hidden inside.

Makes 4 burgers
Preparation time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 8 strips bacon
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Lettuce, for serving
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese, for serving

Directions

  1. Make Sriracha mayonnaise: In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and Sriracha.
  2. In a large skillet, fry bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  3. Form beef into three equal-sized patties. Using a small glass, cut out the center of each patty to create a donut-shaped burger (combine excess meat to form a fourth patty). Season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a cast-iron skillet to medium-high heat and melt butter. Add burgers and cook for 2 minutes, then flip. Crack an egg into the center of each burger and cook, covered, until whites are set.
  5.  Toast buns and spread Sriracha mayonnaise on bottom buns. Build burgers by topping with lettuce, burger, bacon and cheddar.
