brisket breakfast burgers

I am not a fan of the texture of beef brisket, but thought the taste would make an awesome burger. After making burgers using this cut of meat, I'm not sure if I want to go back to regular ground beef. This is the most tender, moist, and flavorful burger you will ever have; it does not disappoint. Create your own tasty burger with any toppings you want to add.

How To Make brisket breakfast burgers

  • 1
    Add the seasonings to the ground brisket, then place in the refrigerator for 20 twenty minutes. Because of the high fat content, the meat is place in the refrigerator to keep the fat from breaking down when making the patties
  • 2
    Form five patties, about 3/4 in. thick. You can cook in a cast iron grill or skillet, or on an outdoor grill. I used a cast iron skillet.
  • 3
    Cook each side at medium heat for five minutes. Do not turn the meat, other than to cook the other side and do not press your burger. This meat is very tender and can easily fall apart. Once it's finished, move to paper towels to absorb some of the grease.
  • 4
    Cook the eggs to your preference, we just fried, with no run.
  • 5
    Once your burgers are done cooking, toast the buns and build your burger: bun, condiment (optional), burger, sliced cheese, bacon, egg, condiment (optional) bun top. Enjoy with sweet potato fries or your choice of sides.
