         All-Day Breakfast Buffalo Burger -- Bacon, Egg, And Bison On A Bun

Bison Breakfast Burger with Bacon and Egg

Here is the ultimate antithesis to a light breakfast. It's best enjoyed on the weekends.

One of these in the morning and you'll probably make it way past noon before getting hungry.

For late risers, add some freshly made french fries on the side and it's a great filling meal for any time of the day.
        Ingredients For A Single Breakfast Burger
              
1
2-3 oz
2-3 slices
1
1
1

large burger bun or Kaiser
cheese, grated or sliced
bacon
frozen bison burger patty (4 to 6 ounces in size)
large egg
thick tomato slice

        Directions

              

    • Split the bun, top with cheese, and set aside. Use whatever cheese you have available. What I used here was a combination of old cheddar and freshly grated Parmesan.


    • Bacon frying in a cast iron pan. Cooked bacon draining on a paper or kitchen towel.
    • Fry the bacon in a skillet, or cast iron frying pan over medium-low heat until crisp. Drain the crisp bacon on paper towel. Pour all but 1 tbsp of the bacon fat from the pan into a small holding dish and set aside.


      Uncooked bison burger patties in pan. Bison burgers cooking in pan.
    • Defrost frozen bison burger patty on auto-defrost in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes, or until the patty just begins to soften. (I find the best patties for this recipe are the pre-formed ones that are available from most bison meat suppliers.)

    • Fry burger over medium-high heat. Flip every minute or so until almost done, about 6 minutes. Remove pan from burner, cover to allow burger to finish cooking.


      Frying the egg. Buns toasting and cheese melting.
    • Set oven broiler on high. While broiler is heating up add some of the set aside bacon fat to a non-stick skillet. Over medium heat, fry the egg.

    • While the egg is frying, lightly toast the split bun under the broiler. Bun(s) should be toasted just the point where the cheese is beginning to melt.
