We eat eggs every day and we eat hamburgers just about as often. While we have the beef cows to support our hamburger-loving habits, we do not have chickens to support our egg-loving habits. One of these days!
A while back I was offered to try a Tramontina Gourmet Porcelain Enamel Fry Pan with Teflon® nonstick coating. I was really busy when it came, so I unpacked it, washed it and set it in the cabinet. While I was gone one afternoon my husband used it to fry a burger. He told me that he had used my new skillet and how much he really liked it.
I usually fry burgers in the cast iron skillets and on occasion get them too hot and set off the smoke alarm. Does that happen to you? Maybe my smoke alarms are just sensitive and really I'm okay with that.
Any how, it got me to thinking of what all I could use this skillet for. Of course the next morning I was using it to make eggs for the kids. Nice even cooking great at both a higher temperature for burgers and at a low temperature for eggs.
It could be said that I get a little too excited over watching Top Chef, but really it's inspiring. While I could do without the personal drama and antics in the kitchen, what I do love is the creative food and the flavor combinations.
Now I had already been thinking about a recipe with a fried egg on a hamburger and lately I've been eating a lot of cheeseburger salads and then....I saw a fried egg on a cheeseburger on Top Chef and I knew it was time to try it!
So hear you go, not really what we typically eat at our house but I loved it! My husband thought it was okay. He wants a hamburger to be a hamburger and if you want egg in your salad then it should be boiled and chopped and if you want an egg sandwich then you should have an egg sandwich. But he ate it.
Myself, I will eat it again. I loved the sunny side up egg dripping over the burger. Because I was using crumbled blue cheese, I just sprinkled it over the lettuce instead of the burger. You could melt the cheese over the burger making the technical cheeseburger if you like.

Fried Egg and Cheeseburger Salad
- ½ pound lean ground beef
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 4 cups iceburg lettuce, shredded
- 2 tablespoons grated carrot
- 1 celery stalk, diced
- 2 red sweet peppers, sliced into rings
- 3 tablespoons blue cheese (or cheddar if you don't like blue)
- ⅓ cup Ranch dressing
- ½ tablespoon butter
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
Divide ground beef into two patties and flatten to about ½ to ¾ inches thick. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Preheat skillet over medium high heat and add patties. Cook over for about 4 minutes and gently turn patties to cook other side. Continue cooking 5 to 7 minutes or until patties are cooked through to desired doneness. Remove from skillet and cover loosely with foil.
Meanwhile divide lettuce, carrot, celery and peppers onto two plates. Sprinkle each with cheese. Top with Ranch dressing/
When burgers are cooked, wipe skillet clean with a paper towel and place skillet over low heat. Add butter and when it is melted add eggs. Season with salt and cook slowly until white just starts to set. Gently flip eggs with a spatula and cook about 30 seconds.
Place hamburger patties over salad and top with fried egg.
