Bacon Cheeseburgers with a Fried Egg + Maple Aioli
1poundlean ground beef
4eggs,cooked to your liking
1 1/2tablespoonsmaple syrup
1large egg yolk
1/2teaspoonfresh lemon juice
2tablespoonswhole grain mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper
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!
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.
