  • Servings



  • ½

    pound thick-cut bacon or black-pepper bacon

  • ¼

    cup dark amber maple syrup

  • pounds coarsely ground beef chuck

  • 3

    tablespoons worcestershire sauce

  • 3

    tablespoons grated onion

  • 2

    tablespoons grainy dijon mustard

  • coarse salt and black pepper

  • EVOO or vegetable oil for drizzling

  • ½

    pound sliced extra-sharp white cheddar, for topping

  • melted butter, for frying eggs and basting burger rolls

  • 4

    organic eggs

  • 4

    seed-topped or onion burger rolls, split


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Bake the bacon on a broiler pan or rack-lined baking sheet until the fat is partially rendered, about 15 minutes. Baste the bacon with the maple syrup; bake until crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. In a bowl, combine the beef, Worcestershire and onion (grate the onion over the bowl so the juices fall into the meat). Stir in the mustard; season with salt and lots of pepper. Form into 4 patties (thinner at the center and thicker at the edges). Drizzle the patties with oil; cook, flipping once, until a nice crust forms, about 7 minutes. Top with the cheese and cook for about 2 minutes to melt. Brush a nonstick skillet over medium heat with some melted butter. Add the eggs and fry to your liking; season. Toast the buns, basting with melted butter. Top the bun bottoms with the burgers, bacon, eggs and bun tops
