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.
