Over Egging Your Burgers!

The following protein packed egg burger recipe is one that I very regularly indulge on. It is a very easy meal to prepare and cook, and also offers you a healthy injection of protein to fuel your training and fitness goals. If you are a fan of the traditional beef burger you will love the extra addition; a runny egg. All you need to construct this burger of beauty are the following ingredients.

What You Need!

  • 500g lean beef/turkey/pork mince,
  • 5 eggs,
  • 1 small onion,
  • Optional burger buns!

How To Prepare!

  • Mix the mince into a bowl,
  • Dice the onion and add to the mixture,
  • Add and mix in 1 egg,
  • Slightly wet your hands and mix the ingredients,
  • Separate into 4 even balls,
  • Squeeze these flat to desired patty thickness (too thick and they won’t cook through),
  • Use a small cup or cutter to cut out a circle in the middle of each patty,
  • Use excess meat to bulk out the rim of your burgers or keep to make added meatballs.

How to Cook!

  • Seal the burgers for 3-5 mins in a frying pan,
  • Then place them on a baking tray in the oven at 180 (depending on oven),
  • Leave for 15 mins then take them out and crack an egg into the centre of each burger,
  • Place back in the oven until the white of the eggs are cooked.
  • Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves and sliced beef tomato for carb free option.

This is a very tasty (but messy) treat for all you burger lovers. And here’s some more burger recipes as a double treat!
