Bacon Cheeseburgers with a Fried Egg + Maple Aioli

Yield: serves 4

Total Time: 1.5 hours


1 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces havarti cheese, sliced
6 slices of bacon, cooked
4 eggs, cooked to your liking
4 english muffins, toasted

maple aioli
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper


Add the ground beef to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 equal patties, then cook as desired: either grill the burgers or cook on a skillet until they reach the desired doneness. I cooked mine in a cast-iron skillet for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. A minute before the burgers are done, add a slice of havarti cheese on top.

To assemble the burgers, place the burger on the english muffin. Add the egg, some of the maple aioli and the bacon, then the top of the english muffin. Serve!

Slowly stream in olive oil while continuously whisking until the mixture emulsifies and comes together completely. Whisk in whole grain mustard. then taste and season with a little salt and pepper as desired. Set aside.
