The burger. A giant meal inside a bun but small enough to hold in one hand, freeing up the other hand to hold a drink. It's the perfect set up!
Have you seen some of the insane examples in the world of burgers lately? Like this Teddy's Bigger Burger or this Fried Mac and Cheese Burger. I'm all for burger transforming but for me personally, if I'm not going to get a bite of every flavor in one jaw motion then I'll pass. I tend to skip the lettuce and tomatoes in favor for something with more flavor, like...oh I don't know, maybe some thinly sliced Porchetta and a runny egg!
This could be the perfect burger for breakfast sans beer though. The egg yolk should still be super yellow but beware for the burst, the yolk should slide down your throat, not your shirt! I used Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs simply because I love my yolks as runny as possible, but still with the peace of mind of them being naturally pasteurized and safe from bacteria.
May is National Egg Month and National Burger Month so pairing them up just seemed like the right thing to do. With a little more than a week left, you should start cleaning your grill for these amazing burgers. Even if you can't get a patty on the coals before June, don't stress because the summer is just beginning. Just please please promise me you'll try something other than lettuce and tomato to fill up that bun? Bacon, cheese, salami, Prosciutto, french fries and pulled pork are some of my favorite toppings, so go and blow your friends minds with some crazy burger creations.
