We had left over unseasoned burger patty mixture from the night before and I figured since it was brunch we should make up some breakfast type burgers! At first I was going to make chicken fried steak breakfast burgers with gravy and then I decided to just make it easy. After making these up I found out online that they are pretty common but every recipe is very different. Since they are so common I suggest that you try these out. I tried to get my parents to but they just gave me looks of disgust. It is too bad really because these flapjack burgers are yummy! Enjoy!
1/2 lb ground sirloin Angus beef
1/2 lb ground chuck beef
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp white powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp de arbol chile powder
1/8 tsp cumin
maple syrup (optional)
4 deli bacon slices
8 of Zo's buttermilk pancakes (hamburger bun sized)
4 large eggs
Mix beef and seasonings together in a medium bowl and let site for 10 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium.
Separate patty mixture into 4 servings and form 1/4 inch patty by rolling each serving into a ball and then pressing flat. Place patties on heated grill and cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until desired doneness is reached.
Fry 4 slices of bacon in a medium non stick pan over medium high heat for 7-10 minutes or until crisping. Remove bacon from pan, cut in half and let sit to side until ready to use. Clean out all but 1 tbsp of bacon grease. Place pan back on burner and fry 4 eggs in the grease for 5 minutes (prepare the eggs your desired way, we liked ours over easy.)
Place burger patty on one buttermilk pancake and top with 2 halves of bacon and an egg. Top off with another pancake and here is the hard part... Decide if you want maple syrup drizzled over the flapjack burger, inside the burger over the bacon or not at all. I preferred it without and Zo preferred it over the bacon but it really is tasty either way. Enjoy!
