It’s part breakfast, part dinner, and part 75% arterial blockage. Okay maybe it isn’t that terrible for you…
Crispy bacon, a poached egg, and a spoonful of dreamy hollandaise sauce top a plain burger. Okay, it’s definitely that terrible for you.
For the hollandaise sauce:
3 large egg yolks
1 Tbsp water
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
For the burgers:
1 lb lean ground beef
3 eggs, fried or poached
3 slices of bacon, cooked to a crisp
Heat grill to medium-high heat.
In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, whisk egg yolks with water, whisking vigorously, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice.
Whisk in 1-2 pieces of butter at a time until melted.
Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm over the doubler boiler, whisking occasionally and adding 1-2 tsp hot water if the sauce thickens too much.
Season ground beef with a pinch of salt, black pepper, and a few dashes of Worcestershire.
Divide ground beef into 3 equal portions and form into a patty.
Cook on the grill 4-5 minutes each side, until cooked to desired doneness.
Assemble on buns and top with crispy bacon, an egg, and a spoonful of hollandaise sauce.
