I am the first to admit this burger is way over the top. Eggs and bacon? Mayonnaise? All served with a juicy beef burger? This may not fall into the “healthful” category, but it has an honored place on my Top 10 Burgers list in terms of pure deliciousness! In fact, when I was done testing and retesting the recipes destined for the pages of my cookbooks, my kids begged for the bacon and egg burgers “one more time, please!”
