The Breakfast Burger - Breakfast, Brunch, Dinner, Anytime

Posted by Ryan Shannon on


Pork burgers. They seem to confuse a number of people. To clarify, they are like sausages, without the casing, formed into patties - sausage patties, if you will. So, pork burgers, naturally, make for an amazing breakfast burger. Now, for those of you thinking, why would you want a burger for breakfast? The answer is, because burgers are great at any time of day, and there needs to be more opportunities in life to put a fried egg on top of something. Whether its a breakfast for dinner kind of night, a hangover breakfast after a big night out, or just a backyard BBQ brunch with the family, here are a number of different ways to bring burgers to your plate for the most important meal of the day.
