Fried Egg Burger is the breakfast of champions burger that you don't need to leave home for! Wet, gooey egg, bacon, bread and horseradish yogurt sauce is a dream combo!
Beef burgers have their time and place but a burger with wet gooey egg and crispy bacon will have you leaping out of bed!
This burger celebrates the joy of a simple fried egg.
Paired with crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato, Horseradish Yogurt Sauce and a soft fluffy bun it is a dream come true!
Cutting the juicy fat from a traditional burger, this egg and bacon burger won't leave you feeling too full.
It ticks the box any time of the day and takes less than 15 mins to bring together!
All of the ingredients you need to make this recipe are shown in the photo, they are all simply and easy to find!
As you can see the recipe calls for:
- Eggs (free range of course!)
- bacon (can use rashers, streaky or fillets)
- hamburger buns (I am using multigrain, white rolls)
For this burger, I recommend using my Horseradish Yogurt Sauce, it packs a subtle but strong flavour that perfectly compliments the bacon and egg combo!
Step by step instructions
Here are the step by step instructions to make the recipe.
We start by cooking the bacon and frying the egg. I use the same fry pan to save cleaning up!
- fry the bacon for 3-4 mins till crispy (Photo 1)
- fry the eggs till egg white is cooked and yolk still wet (Photo 2)
When making these fried egg burgers, I recommend cooking the bacon prior to to frying the eggs. This is for a couple of reasons.
The rendered bacon fat on the pan will allow you to cook your eggs without using additional oil.
Once the bacon is cooked, it can be rested on paper towel for a couple of mins to soak up any grease and then assembled together with the egg when it is ready.
In the photo above, you can see that this really is a a simple burger!
But it is PACKED with flavour, will have a little runny egg running down your hand instead of beef burger juices and fuels you for getting about your day!
Frequently asked questions
What is a burger with a fried egg called?
A fried egg burger of course! Haha, but nah!
A burger with a fried egg is often called a works burger or burger with the lot! It is the perfect breakfast burger and works well for brunch on weekends too!
If, however, you are following this recipe, we are simply calling our burger that has a fried egg and bacon, a fried egg burger!
What do fried eggs taste like?
A fried egg is best served with a cooked egg white and runny yolk. This means that when you pierce the yolk, it will flow freely.
My preference is to not flip the egg when cooking it. Rather, I recommend using a technique where the heat is of a moderate temperature and the egg white turns from clear to white and egg yolk a bold warm yellow!
Following on from the recipe instructions above in using the bacon fat (grease) to cook the fried eggs, they will have a freshly cooked breakfast taste about them!

This is what I have learnt that will help you master the recipe from the 1st time and every following time:
- Cook the bacon 1st and use the same pan to fry the eggs
- Rest the bacon on paper towel to absorb any grease

- If your egg whites are bubbling, turn the heat down a little
