The Luther burger uses a glazed donut in place of the buns and is topped with cheese, bacon, and a sunny side up egg. It’s an intense combination of sweet and savory that’s surprisingly tasty.
- 6 slices bacon
- 2 glazed donuts
- 2 8oz 70/30 patties
- Butter or ghee
- 2 slices cheddar cheese
- 2 eggs
Light some coals and add to one side of your grill and cover with a griddle.
While the griddle heats up, start cooking your bacon in a pan over a medium high heat until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Remove from the pan, but reserve the bacon grease for later use.
Once it’s piping hot, melt some butter or ghee on the griddle and lay the patties down on top of it. Press with a spatula for about 10 seconds for the best contact with the griddle and a good sear on the meat, then season with salt and pepper. Cook to your desired level of doneness, flipping once and reseasoning half way through (about 3 minutes per side depending on heat). Just before you pull the burgers off, top with a slice of cheese.
Crack two eggs into the pan with bacon grease and cook them sunny side up over indirect heat. Spoon some of the bacon grease over the top of the eggs as they cook to cook them from both sides while leaving the yolk intact.
Slice your donuts in half and build your burgers starting with the bottom donut, patty, egg, bacon, and top donut.
