Turkey Burger Nest Egg Sandwich

Turkey Burger Nest Egg

I love eggs!

Fried, poached, scrambled you name it, if its an egg I’m there.  My wheels started turning with all the possibilities pasteurized in-shell eggs could offer.
I especially like my eggs on the soft, dippy-side. A lightly fried sunny-up, easy over, soft poached or soft boiled egg can add richness to a pasta dish, salad, or in this case, a burger.

You can easily make this turkey burger as a patty and top it with an egg.

I liked the idea of making a burger nest for my golden egg deliciousness!
I started by making an arugula pesto. You can use any green. I’ve used spinach and even watercress!

Next, I added a little to the turkey.

When you see juices rise to the top, it is time to flip it.

When the burger is thoroughly cooked, here comes the best part!

Crack a Davidson’s Safest Choice Egg into the burger nest!

Carefully flip it over and cook your egg as desired. The burger holds the heat in, so it takes about as long to cook your egg as if you just pan cooked it. You can also top a patty of your choice with an egg cooked your way! Try it with beef or sausage too.

    I can’t help it but if I am going to cook a burger, it’s going to be beef. lol – I am thinking your recipe would be great with it as well or over a chicken sandwich. You give me all kinds of ideas!
