My daughter is a huge fan of Texas. Sometimes we talk about moving and she says she doesn’t want to go anywhere but here. She’s only been out of the state twice so I always use that as my argument. She has lots of favorites but myself it’s different. I do love the locally source food. From yellow onions, to apples, to eggs like Lone Star Eggs. Texas food is all about locally sourced and as big and crazy as you can get. That’s why I bring to you today the Bacon, Egg, and Potato Burger.
Food like this makes me excited! You know they say “Everything is Bigger in Texas.” I won’t disagree with that when it comes to food. This Bacon, Egg, and Potato burger is stacked with baked potato slices, baked bacon, cheese, avocado, and eggs all on a toasted bun. The only thing to make this better is some BBQ dipping sauce.
As you can see here I bake the bacon and potatoes right next to each other in order for the potatoes to soak up some of that bacon grease flavor. Plus, I love the way the bacon comes from baking tender, and perfect for a burger. We slice the slices in half to fit better on the burger.
This is my crazy Texas style burger. I would love to hear what you would top your burger with. What kind of local sourced products do you love? Crazy, creative, and cool ways to use eggs? Tell me below. I always love new recipes.
