Egg Burger, inspired by Guillaume Riesen

Guillaume sent us a mouth-watering Bacon and Egg Double Cheeseburger a few weeks back, and I have attempted to recreate it at the Ratty twice since then (the first time the pictures didn't turn out as well...although I'd take any excuse to make this scrumptious recipe many more times).

A note, however. In Guilliaume's original recipe, he says "tomato slices and salad [are] optional but somewhat frowned upon" and after trying it with the veggies (and without the bacon) I have to agree--this is another one of those lip-smacking "protein only" sandwiches (if you insist on getting your greens, have it on the side with a splash of balsamic).

So, this version of the burger (plus the veggies) is remotely inspired by Guillaume's recipe, although I have a strong feeling one of us is going to recreate the original Bacon and Egg Double Cheeseburger sometime in the near future (this time, all meat and protein). So keep an eye out for a future post of Guillaume's original Bacon and Egg Double Cheeseburger.
