Best Ever Breakfast Burger for Dinner with Rosemary Sweet Potato Home-fries

Who doesn’t love breakfast? And burgers? So why not put them together!breakfast burger with sweet potato fries

Amazingly I recently had one of the best burgers in a long time from an airport restaurant. We had four hours between flights and none of the restaurants were serving anything remotely healthy or filling at 10am – bagel with crappy cream cheese, overpriced granola bars, and one place had a breakfast smoothie with the first ingredient being corn syrup…yuck.

The “burger bar” had breakfast burgers on the menu and we decided to go for it. Darn if it wasn’t fantastic! Huge juicy burger with beef, cheese, egg, and bacon and served with a side of home-fries! Not bad for twelve bucks!

The other  night we decided to have burgers for dinner and we both immediately got a hankering for those breakfast burgers. We decided to amp it up a bit by adding Canadian bacon (a nice salty ham), bacon of course, a slice of Vermont cheddar cheese, farm fresh fried egg, and serve it with a side dish of homemade oven baked rosemary sweet potato home-fries. YUM!

For the sweet potato home-fries:

3 medium sweet potatoes

1 teaspoon of ground dried rosemary

2 tablespoons of olive oil

salt and ground black pepper to taste

Wash your sweet potatoes and then cut into 1-inch cubes leaving the skin on. Spread on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil, rosemary, and salt and pepper.

Spread out evenly and put into a pre-heated oven at 375°F for about an hour or until they are fork tender and starting to crisp up around the edges.

For the burgers (this recipe is for two people, though we wound up making three burgers as we like ours smaller – we saved the third burger for another recipe):

1 pound of ground beef

2 eggs

2 slices of Canadian bacon (ham)

2 slices of Vermont cheddar cheese (or you could use American cheese for better melting)

4 slices of bacon

2 hamburger rolls (we used the sandwich thins)

Form your beef into two patties and either grill or cook in a frying pan until done. We did our in the pan the other night as it was too cold to go out and grill!

cooking the hamburgers

Place the slice of cheese on top of the beef. Next, fry the slice of ham to heat a bit and put on top of the cheese.

adding to the burger

Next, fry your egg and when it is done to your liking, add that on top. Last, but certainly not least, crown your burger with two slices of bacon. I added a little ketchup and mayonnaise to my burger before taking a ginormous bite! YUM!

    As a chicken keeper, we eat breakfast for dinner a lot. But, I love your twist on it. Looks and sounds delicious.

    It would be blasphemous to write down my initial comment…bur REALLY! You must have a death wish eating like that. wonder the US has such an obesity problem. Have you ever counted up the calories and the FAT?! To say nothing about such poor food combinations. and all those proteins thrown together. It would be of great benefit to take a look at Hallelujah Acres.

      Well, I don’t eat this every night – just when I want something special. Besides, I would rather crave a protein rich meal and overload once in a while on the fat, than crave processed sugar and overload on the bad stuff in whatever they put in Twinkies and such (not saying that if you eat Twinkies it is a horrible thing). My rule in food is to have balance. The night after this meal we both had a terrific salad with lots of veggies for dinner with a bowl of cottage cheese and apples for dessert.
