Brunch Burgers have everything you love about breakfast piled high on a delicious grilled burger! Create the ultimate brunch burger with crispy hash browns, American cheese, bacon with a fried egg on top!
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!

How to Make a Brunch Burger:
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.
- Cook Bacon until crispy.
- Fry Hash Browns.
- 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.
- Grill burgers, 8 to 10 minutes on each side, until internal temperature reaches 165°.
- 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.
You don’t have to go out to a restaurant to get an epic burger, they are quite easy to make at home. Even if you use your indoor grill pan or fry your burgers up in a skillet, you are going to get a satisfying and delicious burger.
