English Muffin Burger

I don't know about you, but the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about english muffins is unfortunately, the mega fast food chain McDonalds. Egg McMuffin, sausage McMuffin, sausage egg McMuffin.. It was always these McDonalds breakfast meal burgers that I truly enjoyed, hashbrown included! Perhaps because we would usually get them early in the morning before we started on our long car rides as a family. 

Whatever the association, it was all on an english muffin; it's chewy, grainy texture. So here's our take on an english muffin burger compromising of your friendly breakfast ingredients. Why not have it on an english muffin instead of a plain ol' bun! There's nothing better than a homemade burger!

Ingredients (Makes 5 burgers)

  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • 2 large onions, caramelized
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 large tomato
  • Bacon
  • Lea and Perins sauce
  • 200 grams minced beef
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil
  • 5 english muffins
  1. Finely chop garlic, onions. Add into bowl of minced beef. Add a good pinch of salt and pepper as well as a tablespoon of Lea and Perins sauce. (We don't usually crack an egg for the patty because it manages to hold up just fine.)
  2. With clean hands, mix everything up well. Divide and mould into 5 circular shapes about 2cm thick with a concave middle. Drizzle some olive oil onto the patties.
  3. Fry bacon and onions and egg. 
  4. Preheat a nonstick pan on high heat for about 3 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium and place the patties on the pan concave surface facing upwards. 
  5. Slice tomatoes.
  6. Half the english muffins and toast in an oven for a short while, just enough to melt cheese on top.
  7. Put burger together and enjoy!
