Bacon Egg Burger


  • 6 Pretzel rolls
  • 6 Beef burger patties
  • Peppercorn dry rub
  • 12 Slices hickory bacon
  • Sweet onions or Vidalia onions
  • 6 Slices cheddar cheese
  • 6 Eggs


  • 1. This is all done on the BBQ grill!
  • 2. First things first, prepare your burger patties with peppercorn rub
  • 3. Once the burger patties are made, prepare a medium high heat (make sure you have a nice heat that is well spread out over the grill)
  • 4. You’re going to have a lot going on, so I’d spread the coals out over 3/4 of the grill
  • 5. Leave 1/4 of the grill as a cooler indirect area
  • 6. Lay the uncooked bacon in a cast iron skillet
  • a. If it starts cooking too fast slide the skillet to the indirect heat area of the grill that has no coals; this will slow the cooking down a bit
  • 7. Check to see how done the bacon is; it may be necessary to move the skillet back over the coals. At the same time grill the burgers and onions. 8. Put the cheese on the burger when it’s almost done and move to the area with no coals (indirect heat)
  • 9. It’s now time to put the egg on; the egg will cook quickly and you don’t want to overcook it
  • 10. The cheese will have some time to melt while the egg is cooking
  • 11. Remove the bacon and set it aside (don’t snack on it)
  • 12. Crack the egg right in the bacon grease in the cast iron skillet and keep a close eye on it
  • 13. Then flip that egg!
  • 14. The second the egg is to your liking, put the bacon on top of the cheeseburger, add the onions and top it with the nice runny fried egg
  • 15. If you’ve done this correctly, the egg will run all down the sides of the burger when you bite into it Đ an important note to be made is that your egg must be runny (over easy, sunny side up, etc); if you overcook the egg or don’t like runny eggs then don’t even bother. A fully cooked egg will not be good.
