Breakfast....everyone's favorite meal. Whether you have it in the morning or the evening, for some reason the breakfast meal and menu is great at anytime. So for that reason I just had to create the Breakfast Burger. Something that you can enjoy eating at anytime.
I set upon creating this meal within itself. Of course I had to have the burger patty. I went with home-made pork butt hamburger. I like the pork butt because it has lean meat as well as fat. Since I try to stay with the 80% meat and 20% fat ratio for my burger meats, the butt was perfect. I put the appropriate amounts of each into the food processor along with fresh oregano from the garden, minced red and yellow onions, smoked paprika powder, mustard powder and minced garlic. I gave this all a twirl in the processor and Bam!!!!! The perfect hamburger meat. Patty #1.
For Patty #2 I wanted a breakfast meat. Something different and with some kick. I spotted the Farmer John brand of link sausage with Chorizo at the store. I had to have it. Thus with this I fashioned Patty #2.
Well, because this was a breakfast burger, I felt compelled to include a fried egg and 2 strips of bacon. I thought to myself, now this is starting to shape up nicely.
Cheese, what kind of cheese did I want to use? I had four different types of sliced cheese on had. You know that variety pack from Cost U Less here on Guam. In the states I guess it could be found at Cost Co. Anyway I chose Cheddar and Monterrey Jack. I love them both and their colors would contrast nicely for my photos.
Then I topped this all off with green butter lettuce, red onion slices, a slice of beef steak tomato, and alfalfa sprouts. Got to make sure I get all the food groups in here right? Of course I had to spread my standard burger goo made up of mayo, dijon mustard and ketchup. I was able to cram this in between a large Sesame Seed bun.
Here's how that all came out...
The only problem with this burger was that it was so darn tall and fat. So I ended up cutting it in half and squishing it down a tad. Just enough so that I could get some decent bites in which is exactly what I did.
All I'm going to say is that all those flavors in you mouth at one time was like having a fiesta!!! Awesome, simply awesome!
So if you are every in the mood for breakfast and a burger at the same time, don't hold back. Open up those flood gates and make yourself one of these Breakfast Burgers. You will be dribbling all over yourself in a flash.
Until next time....
