The Burger Breakfast Meal !

WHAT IS THE BREAKFAST BURGER MEAL you ask. Let me tell you ! Soft fluffy homemade Buttermilk Biscuits topped with sauteed onions,topped with a burger that is topped with an sunny side up egg. Then pour the velvety cheese sauce over the burger, egg and biscuits. Served with raw fried potatoes and you have a BREAKFAST BURGER MEAL!

START WITH THE POTATOES!
 Use 1 peeled sliced thin potato per person. Fry in butter over medium heat until soft but crispy brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste ! Keep hot until ready to plate up !                                                                     
    MAKING THE BUTTERMILK BISCUITS!
2 Cups Flour   
1/4 TSP Salt  
3 TSP Baking Powder     
Stir these together.Then add the following:
1/2 Cup Lard or Shortening I use Lard ! LARD is so wonderful in baked goods & no worse for you than shortening so PLEASE do not be afraid of Lard! Cut the lard in until you have fine crumbs!
1 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 TSP Baking Soda
Stir these together then add to your flour mixture. Stir just until combined and you have a dough. Now flour your hands and pat the dough into 4 equal shaped biscuits, NO NEED to roll or knead! Lay on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes!
While biscuits are baking next make your cheese sauce!
2 TBS Butter
3 Heaping TBS Flour
In deep sauce pan melt butter, whisk in flour until combined. Whisk in 2 Cups Milk. Cook over medium high heat whisking until you get a thick smooth sauce.
Salt to taste 
Pepper to taste
1 TBS Parsley 
1 TBS Chives 
1 TSP Garlic Powder   
1 Dash Nutmeg     
Whisk in seasonings.
Add 1 Cup of shredded or crumbled cheese. I used Italian Pizza blend but White Cheddar, Monterrey Jack,  Gouda Cheese or just good old American Cheese use what you love ! Stir until smooth & melted.
                                                                                                                                                                     Keep warm until you are ready to plate up!
NOW THE BURGER!
1/4 lb Burger per person ! I used turkey burger for me & 80% lean ground beef for everyone else.
1 Sliced Onion sliced thin per every 2 people.
1 TBS Butter         
1 Egg per burger
Salt & Pepper to taste        
Melt butter in skillet big enough for all of your burgers. Add onions & fry until soft. Pat out burgers to large flat burger patty shapes. About 4 inches across. Push onions aside in the pan & lay burgers in the pan. Fry until all most completely cooked on the bottom. Flip the burgers & take a wide back soup spoon. Press an indentation into the center of each burger. Fry about 6 more minutes. Now break one egg into the indentation you made on each burger. Cover pan with lid & let  burgers cook until the egg is sunny side up & still has a soft (runny) yolk. While this stage is completing split one biscuit per person & lay on your plates. Cover the bottom of each biscuit with some of the sauteed onions plus this lets you check on the egg!
As soon as the eggs are cooked place each egg topped burger onto the onion topped biscuit bottom. Place the fried potatoes on the side. Ladle about a 1/4 cup or so of the hot cheese sauce over the burger & let it run over the sides of the biscuits ! MY OH MY but this is one HUGE BITE of the BEST BURGER you will ever eat for BREAKFAST!  If you are feeling extra daring you could top this beauty with crisp bacon too but I was just not that DARING but I bet some of you JUST MIGHT BE!  My recipe made 4 HUGE biscuits & serves 4 HUNGRY PEOPLE but you could cut the biscuits down in size & make 6 with enough cheese sauce for 6 just from this recipe ! These Buttermilk Biscuits are GREAT for any time too ! This took me about 45 minutes from start to finish cooking in the order given & I thought that was pretty quick considering the results !
