The Boss (burger).
That's what it's called.
I made these burgers for Father's Day (for my brother), because I was trying to be cheeky.
I feel like I was fairly successful. Also, they were AWESOME.
Have you ever had a fried egg on a burger? It's like cutting a slab of butter and putting on the burger and calling it a day. Except you can pretend it's "healthy" because - eggs.
Start with the bun. Obs. Then the patty. I believe the cheese I used was either mozzarella or monterey jack. You can choose whatever cheese floats your boat. I bet cheddar would be marvelous.
Then some bacon.
Oh glorious day.
Then a fried egg. I'm seriously no expert in the art of frying eggs. I would have liked the yolk to be a little more runny. And for the egg to be a little more round and pretty. (It was still pretty great!)
Then that all gets topped with a salsa verde and pico de gallo.
Then top bun.
I also happened to have some leftover chipotle mayo sauce from the Texican burger, so we slathered some on the top bun.
I wildly recommend doing that.
Oh dear I loved this burger too! There's a lot going on - but it all works together for some strange, glorious reason.
I don't like to ask questions about why that happens.
See why I've been hoarding them?! But now I feel terribly guilty because I want you to share in the deliciousness that are all the burgers.
The timing is a little tricky on these ones. But if you start the eggs IMMEDIATELY after you put the burgers on, they should be done in time for the burgers and won't get cold.
How is it already August 19th? It's freaking me out.
