Cheeseburger in Paradise
Nothing beats a delicious cheeseburger. Except one topped with an over easy fried egg! OK, if you have had this, you know exactly what I am talking about. If not, you have to try this! I experienced this for the first time a couple of years ago at a restaurant called Fat Burger. Yes, Fat Burger. They have the oddest things to put on a burger. I saw the egg, and was not impressed. However, my husband had ordered it. One bite and I was hooked! Yummo!
1 pound of ground beef
1 Tsp. onion powder
1 Tsp. of garlic powder
1 Tsp. of mustard
2 Tbsp. of steak sauce or worcestershire sauce
1 Tsp. of steak seasoning
Fold the seasoning into the beef until it is mixed well.
Divide the beef into 4 equal sections. Using your thumb, create an indentation in the middle of each patty. This helps the patties keep their shape on the grill.
Cook the patties over high heat. You can cook them over a grill or a barbeque. Close the lid, and grill for 5 to 10 minutes. Keep a close eye on them. Hamburger meat contains a lot of fat which can cause flare-ups and burned burgers. Flip the patties only once and let them to cook another 5 minutes, or until they've reached a desired doneness. Add cheese during the last minute if desired. Remove the patties and turn the heat to low. Toast the hamburger buns for 30 seconds. Add your favorite toppings.
