Your dad works hard, and we know raising you wasn't a breeze (trust us, it wasn't for our dads either!) So this Father's Day, let Dad put up his feet and watch the game while you cook up one of these juicy, delicious, pub-inspired burgers!
From a cheesy double decker barbecue burger topped with bacon to one a bit more gourmet topped with goat cheese and avocado, there's a gut-busting burger for any dad's taste.
To make the patties, mix the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, crushed red pepper and salt and pepper with your hands. Shape 8 regular-size patties and place on parchment paper. Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
Once chilled, preheat a grill or skillet over medium heat. Add burgers and cook until medium, about 5 minutes on each side.
To assemble the burger, place one patty on the bottom of the bun. Top with one slice of cheese. Then top the cheese with another patty and the second piece of cheese. Add bacon and 2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce to the top of the burger. Add the bun top and enjoy!
1 pound ground breakfast sausage
1 tablespoon butter
5 English muffins
10 slices bacon, cooked until crisp
5 slices American cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Form the bulk sausage into 5 thick patties. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add burgers and cook until browned on both sides, about 4-5 minutes on each. Place on a paper towel to train.
Fry eggs sunny side up in another small pan over medium heat.
Toast the English muffins. Once toasted, top the bottom muffin with 1 patty, 1 slice of cheese, 2 slices of bacon and 1 fried egg. Top with salt and pepper.
