Crispy fried eggs and grilled patties make this burger a pure flavor bomb

The humble burger. So many possibilities exist within a simple patty and bun. We’ve explored a lot of variations, and one of our favorites is this brioche breakfast burgers recipe. Buttery, toasted brioche buns envelope a perfectly seasoned handmade patty, with melted cheddar cheese and the perfect fried egg on top.

Be sure to generously season your patties on both sides while cooking so they retain their flavor. We also recommend buying ground beef with an 80/20 fat content so they don’t dry out. And the fun doesn’t end there; you can add even more breakfast-themed toppings like crispy bacon, shredded hash browns or sliced avocado.
