'Egg-in-a-Hole' Burger



My son loves burgers. He's yet to meet a burger that he doesn't like.  We saw this recipe online one time and he wanted me to make it.  It looked simple enough. We (by we, I mean I) finally made it on Sunday. 

I made some modifications to the original recipe --e.g., added minced garlic, paprika, and cumin to the  ground beef, omitted the sriracha and bacon, used provolone instead of cheddar, added guinea fowl eggs to "hold" the meat together.  The burger by itself looked pretty lonely, so I put in some colorful sides --mushrooms with caramelized onions, tomato slices on a bed of arugula, and some nectarine slices to round everything up.  

It was a bit messy biting into the burger as the yolk ran down. Josh deemed the provolone a perfect match with the burger.  The kids were not a huge fan of arugula, but polished everything off nonetheless. I'm not very keen on arugula either, but I thought it actually worked very well with the tartness of the tomatoes and mushrooms and onions.  The nectarines was a very nice "cap" to the meal --so fresh and sweet.  

Will I make this again?  Yes, especially if I want something quick and complete (protein, veggies, fruits).  Plus, I loved playing with the sides, playing with the colors.
