With a waffle bun, crispy bacon, a poached egg and a drizzle of maple syrup, the breakfast burger has the perfect balance of sweet and salty with all the textures you could dream of. It may sound strange at first, but one bite and you'll be hooked!
  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef (90% or higher)
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 waffles
  • 8 slices of center cut bacon, cooked
  • 4 eggs,poached (I used Eggland's Best)
  • Pure maple syrup
  1. Preheat grill to 350. In a large bowl add a generous pinch of salt and pepper to ground beef and lightly mix to combine. Form into 4 hamburger patties. Gently press the center of each patty with your thumb (this promotes even cooking). Grill burgers to desired doneness (about 4 minutes per side for us).
  2. Layer each burger on a waffle. Top with 2 slices of bacon and poached egg. Drizzle with maple syrup and then top with second waffle. Serve immediately.
