Master creative chef, beer drinker, whiskey connoisseur, Ohio dweller, and my brother, who will be known here as WesternBacon, will be doing posts from time to time at Lilly Sue’s Bites and Brews. The meal he has crafted up today will bring you warmth to the heart and comfort to the belly, which is especially needed if you reside in CO with snow in May!
What if there was a way to combine the tastes of breakfast, dinner, and desert all in one coma inducing meal? Well now there is..
A new tradition recently started at my home – Burger Night Wednesdays!!! I have made a couple different kinds, but the Breakfast Burger is by far my most amazingness creation. Well its got the most calories at least. I don’t recommend this often, but its fun every once in awhile.
I didn’t realize I would be blogging about this so I only have the one picture, but I think its clear where this is going.
85/15 % Beef (Enough for your crowd. I usually have around 12-15 people and find that 5-6 lbs of beef is more than enough.
Eggs for frying
Tater Tots (At least go organic here for some “health”)
Brown Sugar (Optional)
And if you have not guessed it by now, glazed donuts…
Defribliator is optional.
The steps for cooking this are pretty straight forward, but I like to cook things in this order:
1. Start bacon fryn
2. Preheat oven according to Tater Tot cooking instruction.
3. Make the beef patties. I almost always only season my burgers with salt and pepper, but this time I also used a very small amount of brown sugar. Its also really important to let the beef come as close to room temperature. It helps everything cook evenly.
4. Start the grill and let the coals get really hot, usually takes about 10-15 minutes. (You could also broil or pan fry) The burgers are ready to be flipped when they are no longer sticking to the grill (about 2 – 3 minutes per side).
5. Start Cooking Tater Tots according to instructions.
6. Fry the eggs.
7. Once everything is done, build your burgers and enjoy!
The hardest thing about this meal is timing. You want everything to be done as close together as possible. I like to build my burgers then warm them in the oven so the cheese melts, and everything is nice and warm.
I don’t have a good beer to go with this, but I would suggest something light, simply because this is such a heavy meal, although I could also see a good stout complementing the sweetness of everything.
