Eggs Benedict Burger

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef, ground chuck preferred
4 eggs
1 tablespoon butter
4 slices of Canadian bacon
4 slices of cheddar cheese
4 English muffins
1 cup baby arugula
Hollandaise sauce, prepared






Directions

In a bowl combine ground beef and steak seasoning, just until seasoning is incorporated. Form meat into 4 burger patties.

Air fryer: 370 F start with 6 minutes, check for doneness. If needed, add more time in 1-2 minute increments. Add cheese and cook until melted (30 seconds)

Grill: Grill over medium heat for 8-10 minutes until the desired temperature is reached. Add cheese and cook another minute until melted.

While burgers are cooking heat Canadian bacon in a hot skillet just until warm. This should only take 2 minutes tops; set aside. Place butter in the same skillet over medium-low heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet. Once the whites are set, carefully flip eggs over and cook 1 more minute for an over-easy egg.

Toast the muffins in either the toaster, air fryer or grill.
