Dressing Ingredients

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest grated

Cheeseburger Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef 90% lean
  • 1 tablespoon mustard stone-ground
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 slices Gruyere cheese
  • 8 mini pretzel buns split

Fried Eggs Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 large eggs

Topping Ingredients

  • 1 bunch arugula
  • 2 medium tomatoes sliced
  • 1 tablespoon mustard optional


  • Whisk lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, and mayonnaise together until combined. Let sit in the refrigerator.
  • For making burgers, mix the next 6 ingredients together, tossing lightly until thoroughly mixed (make sure not to overmix).
  • Form into 8 patties. Cover and grill over medium direct heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side until a thermometer reads 160 degrees. Use cheese to dredge on top; cover and keep grilling for 1 to 2 more minutes until cheese melts. On bun bottoms, place burgers. Keep warm.
  • In each of 2 large skillets, melt a tablespoon of butter over medium heat (on stovetop or grill). Break eggs into a saucer or a custard cup, one egg at a time, then slide into pans gently. Lower heat to low right away. To make eggs sunny-side up, cook, cover, till yolks get thickened yet are not hard.
  • For making basted eggs, during the cooking process, in the pan, spoon butter over the eggs. For making over-easy, flip eggs carefully for both sides to cook, yet do not cover the pan.
  • For serving, spread over bun tops with mayonnaise mixture.
  • Place tomatoes, arugula, and extra mustard (optional) onto burgers. Top burgers with fried eggs. Replace bun tops.
