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