The ultimate fancy burger with all of the fixings. Bacon, fried egg, onions, lettuce, pickles, fancy mayo, and a grilled pretzel bun.



  • 10 ounces 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon, garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon, Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 pretzel buns, lightly toasted/grilled with butter


  • 2 eggs, fried sunny side up
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 46 slices bacon, fully cooked
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle mayonaise
  • Leaf lettuce (or romain)


  1. Combine ground beef, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Mix well and form into two ½-inch-thick patties, about 4-5 inches in diameter.
  2. Meanwhile, slice avocado, red onion, and prepare lettuce slices and set aside. On a griddle, skillet, or grill, cook burgers until fully cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. For the last minute top burgers with a slice of cheddar cheese until melted. Toast the buns for 1-2 minutes if desired.
  3. Meanwhile on your griddle or stove top, fully cook bacon and fry eggs sunny side up until egg whites are no longer runny or translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Assemble your burger starting with the lettuce, beef patty, 2-3 slices of bacon, 3-4 slices of avocado, 2-3 slices of red onion, one fried egg, and chipotle mayonnaise spread on the pretzel bun.
