A while back one of my sons came through raving about a brunch burger that he tried from Applebees. I’m a huge fan of an egg on top of anything and just had to try it!

Burgers are the one thing that I never get tired of. This is no ordinary burger and not one that I would eat every day, but it is one that you must try.

It’s completely over the top and almost too big to fit in your mouth. Just grab a knife, a fork, a napkin and get to it!


Grilled Brunch Burger topped with an egg

How to Make a Brunch Burger:

steak rub

Mix Steak Rub Together:

This is the rub we use on our favorite Grilled Ribeye Steaks and it’s great for seasoning burgers!

  • Brown sugar, granulated garlic, smoked paprika, kosher salt, black pepper and dry mustard. 
  • Add steak rub to 2 pounds of lean ground beef. 

Baked Bacon


Ground beef seasoned with steak rub

  • Form seasoned ground beef into 6 patties with an indention in the center. 
  • Prepare grill to 300° fire with hickory or oak for smoke flavor. 

Grilling Burgers

    • Grill burgers, 8 to 10 minutes on each side, until internal temperature reaches 165°. 

Brunch Burger with hash browns, bacon, egg and cheese

  • Top grilled patties with American cheese. 
  • Cook eggs, sunny side up with butter or non stick cooking spray.
  • Layer buns with your favorite condiments like mayo, mustard, ketchup, burger sauce or barbecue sauce
  • Top with lettuce, red onion and tomato. 
  • Layer a crispy hash brown, cheese burger, bacon and egg and top burger buns. 
  • Serve immediately. 

Delicious Sides for Burgers:

  • Easy Onion Strings are great for topping burgers or to serve alongside. Thin sliced onions are dipped in buttermilk and seasoned flour and then quickly fried until crispy. 
  • Sweet Potato Fries are a great addition to burger night. These are oven baked and a healthier option than the traditional fries. 
  • Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes are quick, easy and delicious. Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
