HAM ‘N EGG BURGER CROISSANT

This Ham ‘N Egg Croissant is a tasty cross between breakfast and dinner. Though you can add mayonnaise or a bit of Dijon mustard to moisten up your sandwich, runny egg yolk is a tasty way to go–if you like that sort of thing 🙂

Ham and Egg Burger Croissant

1 lb ground beef

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

4 eggs

1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

4 thin slices deli ham

4 sandwich-sized croissants

1) In medium-sized bowl, mix ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper; shape into 4 patties

2) Heat large skillet over medium-high; add patties to skillet and cook 4-5 minutes each side until burgers are cooked to your preference; transfer patties to plate and keep warm

3) Using same skillet, reduce heat to medium and crack 4 eggs in skillet (shouldn’t need to add oil); cook 1-2 minutes until white sets; flip eggs with a spatula; immediately top eggs with cheese, followed by ham, and flip again; cook 1-2 minutes until cheese melts between egg  and ham and yolk is cooked to your preference; remove from heat

4) Assemble sandwiches as follows: bottom half of croissant, egg-cheese-ham, burger, top half of croissant; serve it up!

PARMESAN BURGER WITH PARMESAN CRISP

These Parmesan Burgers can be served on a bun or off, but I prefer the non-bun option for the sake of my waistline. Either way, they’re tasty. Thumbs up from my guys (even minus the bun).

Burger with Parmesan Crisp

1-1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan Cheese, divided

1 lb ground beef

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 cup fresh baby spinach

2 roma tomatoes, sliced thick

1) Heat large skillet over medium; using 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (reserving 3/4 cup), form 4 mounds in skillet, spacing them 1″-2″ apart, and cook until melted; with a spatula, transfer Parmesan crisps to a plate and set aside

2) In medium-sized bowl, mix ground beef, reserved 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper; shape into 4 patties

3) Heat large grill pan (or grill out of doors) over medium-high; add burger patties to skillet and cook 4-5 minutes each side or until done to your preference; remove from heat

4) Divide spinach and tomatoes between 4 plates; top with burgers, followed by Parmesan crisp; serve and enjoy!
