Fried Egg Burgers

If you love a runny yolk like I do, then you will definitely enjoy this recipe! If you don't like runny yolk, just skip the egg details and you'll have a great burger as well! I was inspired by my one of my favorite burger restaurants, Umami Burger for this recipe. Not only are their burgers amazing, but they make everything in-house so you know it's real! Here's what you need!


1 TBSP avocado oil

1.5 -2 LB ground beef (I used 85% lean/15% fat)

1/4 onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 TSP Paprika

1 TSP Garlic Powder

1/2 TSP Cayenne Pepper

1 TSP Black Pepper

1 TSP Coarse Salt

1 TSP Worcestershire sauce


1 TBSP avocado oil (for onions)

1/2 onion, sliced, for caramelized onions

2 eggs, cooked sunny side up


Sliced cheese (I used Pepper-jack)

Chompies Burger Bun (GF, Found at Sprouts)


Step 1: Prepare your veggies. Slice half the onion into thin slices for caramelized onions and set aside. Dice 1/4 of an onion and mince the garlic cloves then set aside, this will be added to your ground beef.

Step 2: In a small pan and over medium heat, add 1 TBSP of avocado oil and add the onion slices. Let the onions sweat and caramelize for about 10 minutes, occasionally stirring. Set aside when onions are caramelized.

Step 3: In a large bowl, add the ground beef, diced onions, minced garlic, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Using your hands, mix it all together meat gently until the spices are incorporated into the meat. TIP: Be careful not to over work the ground beef!

Step 4: Line a cutting board with parchment paper, then grab a handful of ground beef, about the size of a baseball, and gently roll into a ball. Place on parchment paper and gently press down until you get a patty. Then make a thumb print in the middle of the patty (this will help cook the meat patty more thorough! Repeat until all meat is used, this recipe makes about 4 burger patties.

Step 5: In a cast iron skillet, heat up 1 TBSP of avocado oil over high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add 1 patty at a time into the cast iron skillet. Do not overcrowd the pan so that patties cook evenly. Burger should cook 3-4 minutes, then flip the patties. Cook longer for well done patties. Repeat until all patties are cooked to your liking and use a meat thermometer to help determine correct temperature.

Step 6: While the patties are cooking, in a small pan over med high heat, add 1 TSP of avocado oil. Once the oil is hot, crack 1 egg into the pan, gently push the egg white into a circle to get a nice shape for the sunny side up egg. Cook until the edges of the egg white have browned and the sunny side up egg is ready! *Flip egg and cook for longer for an over-easy egg.

Step 7: Once the patties and eggs have been cooked, it’s time to assemble the burgers. Toast your buns if desired. *TIP: Adding butter to the bun will add a protective layer to the bun so that the burger juices don’t soak through. Add mayo and mustard for additional flavor!

¡Buen Provecho!
