Pork Burger

Pork Burger 9

A couple of weeks ago, I made & shaped burgers for the freezer. I cooked the beef one recently but now, pork makes it’s appearance. More specifically, the Sage & Thyme version.

These burgers are just wonderful because bacon is already incorporated into the patties, keeping the burger moist & juicy.

I wanted to make this burger a bit more special so I opted for toppings such as coleslaw & sunny side up eggs. Coleslaw on a burger? Why, yes! I somehow got the idea that cabbage and pork goes well together. Nothing wrong with that at all!

Burger construction should also be about the visuals, right?

The sticky brown caramelized surface of the patties make me so happy!

This is a sloppy burger. Let’s just get it out of the way. The meat juices & coleslaw WILL dribble everywhere but it’s all in the best & most satisfying way possible.

Hubs prefer his egg yolks cooked through but I like mine runny.

This made really tall burgers.

Best served with homemade sweet potato & Russett Potato oven fries… to dip into all the drippings. I didn’t want to miss anything.

Again, this gets MESSY! Make sure you have napkins available. 😉

Recipe type: Main
Serves: 3 burgers
  1. Butter the bun halves & brown on a flat skillet. Set aside.
  2. In the same pan, heat up oil on MED heat. Fry up the eggs to your preferred doneness. Remove & set aside.
  3. Again in the pan, fry the burger patties for about 3-4 minutes per side if cooking straight out of the freezer. Both sides should get quite dark brown.
  4. To assembly, place the bottom halves of the buns on a place.
  5. Top with cheddar squares, then the tomato slices.
  6. Lay the browned burger patties on.
  7. Spoon a tablespoon or two of coleslaw over, making sure the juices are drained off as best you can to prevent a soggy burger.
  8. Place the fried egg on top & cap it off with the top bun.
  9. Serve with some homemade fries & mustard!
