This burger is my re-creation of the Sunrise Burger from Perkins which Joel ALWAYS orders when we eat there. It consists of a huge cheeseburger topped with a fried egg, crispy hashbrowns, bacon and a sour cream drizzle. I’m sorry if your arteries clogged just by reading that. I should have warned you. I skipped the bacon on my version if that makes you feel any better. Whaaa? Skipped the bacon? I know, I know. I was lazy and didn’t want to fry up just a few pieces. This is definitely a once in a while kind of meal. I can’t imagine the calories…..
Noah and I opted to go with turkey burgers without all the fixings but I did take a bite of Joel’s burger and it was pretty darn delicious. I especially loved the extra crispy hashbrowns…I’m a total sucker for hashbrowns. As the pictures show, Noah is a lover of cheeseburgers just like his daddy. That boy of mine cracks me up!
1 pre-made burger patty
1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup frozen hashbrowns
sour cream to taste
1 bakery style bun
1. Grill burger until desired doneness is reached (use indoor grill if it’s too cold outside). While burger is on the grill, cook hashbrowns in olive oil until golden and crispy.
2. Spray a small saute pan with non-stick cooking spray. Over medium heat, crack egg into pan and cook until done then flip and cook until light brown.
3. Place cheddar cheese on burger so that it will melt. Slice bun in half and spread with desired amount of sour cream. Place burger on bottom half then top with hashbrowns and egg. Enjoy!
