No, not like burgers for breakfast.

Breakfast Burgers with Maple Aioli I howsweeteats.com

But burgers stacked with breakfast foods.

I don’t know. Does that mean we can eat them for breakfast?

Wouldn’t stop me.

GAH.

Breakfast Burgers with Maple Aioli I howsweeteats.com

Surprise surprise: this is another result of my freakish current burger obsession. !!!!

I know. Is this getting old?

I’m wondering if once the cooler weather comes… my burger infatuation will end? I’m thinking no, especially since it started this past winter. And the only thing better than a burger is a burger with a side of hot dog. I’ll be on vacation in less than 72 hours and will probably consume my fair share of grilled hot dogs.

I’ll be one happy clam.

[Sidebar: that's kind of annoying.]

Can I tell you how much I love these burgers?

AH. Oh my… whatever. So darn good. It’s really only a plain burger – but topped with tons of havarti cheese, crunchy bacon, a flipping fried egg and… wait for it… a maple dijon aioli. Get it? Do ya, do ya, do ya? Maple? Like syrup? Like for breakfast?

That’s where I was trying to go with the whole thing. Working?

Bacon Cheeseburgers with a Fried Egg + Maple Aioli

Yield: serves 4

Total Time: 1.5 hours

Ingredients:

1 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces havarti cheese, sliced
6 slices of bacon, cooked
4 eggs, cooked to your liking
4 english muffins, toasted

maple aioli
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper

Directions:

Add the ground beef to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 equal patties, then cook as desired: either grill the burgers or cook on a skillet until they reach the desired doneness. I cooked mine in a cast-iron skillet for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. A minute before the burgers are done, add a slice of havarti cheese on top.

To assemble the burgers, place the burger on the english muffin. Add the egg, some of the maple aioli and the bacon, then the top of the english muffin. Serve!

maple aioli
Whisk together the syrup, dijon mustard, egg yolk and lemon juice in a large bowl until combined. Slowly stream in olive oil while continuously whisking until the mixture emulsifies and comes together completely. Whisk in whole grain mustard. then taste and season with a little salt and pepper as desired. Set aside.

    Wow, now this is a burger! What a great idea and so creative, I am loving your burger obsession. The maple aioli sounds amazing and I bet it would go with a lot of recipes. I have to try this recipe too.

    Damn, I have all these ingredients EXCEPT the burger meat! I so want this for breakfast stat, but I guess it’s going to have to wait until my grocery run. Boo! Oh, and maple aioli? Geeze, you took it over the edge there. ;)

    Of course not! If layering ingredient together always counted as a burger then I will be trouble! This maple aioli is gorgeous combination of sweet and zesty which I can imagine goes so well with sweet smoked bacon. The burger and Sandwich possible with this dressing: Drool…

    Once again, your beautiful drippy eggs have got me drooling! I could totally get on board with this. I’ve got portobello burgers on my menu this weekend but an egg version might need to happen too! Now that I think about it… i wonder what an egg-and-portobello combo would be like… ;)

    I love that this is totally a real burger. Eggs seriously make everything better. This really has got to be one of the best burgers around. It is simple, but freaking amazing at the same time and there is not one person in my family who would not eat this. That is an AMAZING thing. Trust me, I have picky, picky, picky eaters around here.

    O.M.G. I am a huge fan of breakfast for dinner (AND love a good cheeseburger) in any way possible and this looks ridiculous!

    I fried two eggs for dinner the other night with a side of sauteed leeks and green beans..yum! (my first time ever cooking leeks and now i am hooked! I bought them in preparation to make your portobella and leek carbonara tonight! And for the man, have to have meat, so I am going to slice some steak and throw it in also!)
