This Fried Egg Burger Recipe is made with ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, garlic powder, onion powder, and homemade hollandaise sauce.




  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  •  1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices of American cheese
  • Sliced tomatoes, lettuce and onions for topping

Fried egg

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter

Hollandaise sauce

  • 3 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 10 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Make the hollandaise sauce. Add butter in a bowl and place in a microwave. Place a paper towel on top to prevent mess. Microwave for 10-15 seconds, until the butter is melted. Place the yolks in a food processor or blender. Add the melted butter into the blender, as well as the lemon juice and blend until smooth. Set aside. 
  2. Make the patties. Combine the ground beef, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and combine. Split the meat mixture in four equal parts. Form each portion into a patty.
  3. Cook the patties. Heat the grill to medium high heat. Add the patties on top of the grill grates. Grill the first side about 3 minutes or until charred. Flip the burger over and cook for an additional 6 minutes, or until your desired doneness. Add cheese for one minute on each patty until melted. Remove and let the patties rest. If you like your buns toasted, toast in the grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.
  4. Make the fried egg. In a small frying pan,  add the butter and wait for it to melt. Let the eggs cook undisturbed until the whites are almost completely set and opaque except for the 1/2-inch area around the yolks, about 2 minutes. For Sunnyside up, eat as is. For over easy, flip the egg and cook for 30 seconds more.
  5. Assemble the burger. Place the patty on a bun and top with the fried egg. Add a tablespoon of hollandaise sauce and top with the bun. Top with lettuce, tomato and onion.


  • Use high-quality ingredients: Use fresh ground beef, eggs, and buns for the best results. High-quality ingredients will help make your burger taste better and cook evenly.
  • Season the beef: Season the ground beef with garlic powder, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, or your favorite seasoning blend to add flavor to the burger patty.
  • Don't overwork the beef: When forming the burger patties, avoid overworking the beef. Overworking the meat can result in a tough, dense patty.
  • Make an indentation in the center of the patty: Use your thumb or the back of a spoon to make a shallow indentation in the center of each burger patty. This will help the patty cook evenly and prevent it from puffing up in the middle.
  • Cook the eggs to your liking: Fry the eggs in a skillet to your desired level of doneness. You can cook them sunny-side up, over-easy, or over-medium.
  • Toast the buns: Toast the hamburger buns on the grill or in a toaster for a few minutes until they're slightly crispy. This will add texture to the burger.
  • Add hollandaise sauce: Top the egg burger with hollandaise sauce for a rich, creamy flavor. You can make your own hollandaise sauce or use a store-bought version.
