Bacon And Egg Breakfast Burgers

Serves: 4       Total Time: 45 Minutes + 60 Mins Resting time*


  • 2 cedar planks,
    soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
  • 11/2 lbs. of ground pork, ice cold
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. Bone Dust
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan
  • 2 tbsp. honey mustard
  • 4 slices of thick bacon
  • 4 small eggs
  • 4 toasted english muffins


Step 1
Combine the pork, onion, bread crumbs, bone dust, parmesan, and honey mustard in a bowl. Blend until they're well mixed. Form the mixture into four 6oz. baseball shaped burgers.
Step 2
Gently flatten the burgers, slightly pushing down in the center of each one to form a little well, about an inch deep. This will allow the egg to sit and cook evenly, not run out over the sides.
Step 3
Wrap a slice of bacon around the outside of each burger and secure it with a toothpick. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour* to allow the meat to rest.
Step 4
Preheat the grill to medium-high, about 450° to 550°F. Place two burgers on each soaked plank.
Step 5
Place the planks on the grill and close the lid. Plank bake the burgers for 6 to 8 minutes to allow the outside of the meat to slightly cook.
Step 6
Crackeach egg into a small glass dish and pour each egg into the well of the burger. Close the lid and continue to cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until an instant read thermometer inserted through the side of the burger into the center of the meat registers 160°F, the bacon is crisp, and the egg is cooked but the yolk is still runny. Remove the burgers from the grill and serve atop a toasted english muffin with fresh fruit.
These planked Bacon And Egg Breakfast Burgers are a fantastic breakfast. It's like having a barbecue in the morning! I can totally dig that. Fresh fruit and coffee make this the ultimate breakfast, and if done just right, you have a runny yolk for dipping your english muffin and burger into. (That's my favorite part!)
