Cooper Cheese Hash Brown Breakfast Burger
INGREDIENTS8 frozen hash brown patties
8 pieces bacon, cooked to a crisp
8 slices Cooper Sharp White cheese
4 large eggs
12 ounces ground beef
8 ounces ground turkey breakfast sausage
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
Prepare hash brown patties according to package directions.
While hash browns are baking, in a medium bowl, gently mix together the ground beef and ground turkey breakfast sausage. Season meat with salt and pepper and mix well.
Portion the meat into 4 sections, forming into 4-inch patties. In a medium pan on medium-high heat, fry patties 6-8 minutes per side until internal temperature reaches 165°F and there’s no pink in the centers. While burgers are finishing up, layer 2 slices of Cooper Cheese on each burger patty. Cover with a lid to melt the cheese, about 30 seconds. Remove cheesy burgers from heat and set aside.
Heat a medium skillet on medium-low heat and coat with olive oil. Crack eggs into the skillet and cook until whites are set but yolks are soft. Season with salt and pepper.
Assemble your burgers:
Using one hash brown patty as your bottom bun, add 2 pieces of bacon crisscrossing each other. Top the bacon with 1 egg. Place burger patty with Cooper Cheese on top of the egg and cover with another hash brown patty.
Serve and enjoy!
