I have always enjoyed breakfast burgers. There is something about the combination of a fried egg and ground beef that I always seem to enjoy. This egg in a hole burger is just like the name says—a hole is made in a ground beef patty and then an egg is poured into the center and cooked. The burger is topped off with American cheese for even more flavor. You can add additional burger toppings as well. You can use a glass to make the hole in the beef patty or try using a spoon or butter knife, you will want to be careful when you are doing this to hold the shape of the burger patty. You will want to use a medium egg for this burger because a large egg may be too much. This recipe will make enough for 1 serving but you can easily double the ingredients to serve two. Enjoy.
