Too hot to cook inside? Craving cheeseburgers first thing in the morning? This Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger covers all the best breakfast food groups and is sure start your day off right!
I know what you’re thinking. “A burger! For breakfast?!?!” Yes, you read that correctly. Your mornings are about to change forever! This Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger is a great way to kick off a fun-filled summer weekend of grilling and sunshine and will fill you up before a big day! “What makes it a breakfast burger?”, you ask. Outside of the fried egg – which is pretty normal to see on a menu these days, it’s mixed with just a little bit of sausage. To make it not too crazy, I’ve put it on a brioche bun for a touch of sweetness. If you’re feeling extra breakfast-y though, you could use an english muffin or fried hashbrowns for your buns!
Skills & Techniques
To execute this Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger to perfection, master these other skills and techniques first.
- How To Grill : Everything you need to know about the cooking method.
- How To Buy & Store Ground Beef : So you buy the right ground beef for the job.
- DIY Homemade Mayonnaise : Make this even more breakfast-y by adding some maple syrup to it!
- How To Broil : For reheating
Your burgers will taste better another day if you keep all of your parts separate. Store your toppings, fried eggs, and buns each in their own container. You can keep any leftover patties from your Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. I recommend keeping them in an airtight container in a single layer, especially if any of your Boursin leaked out the sides. Doing this keeps any leaking Boursin from landing on another burger patty and scorching during reheating.
NOTE: If you cooked your burgers to less than the 160°F internal temperature recommended by the USDA, your Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger runs a risk of bacterial growth during refrigeration. If this concerns you, you can always crumble your leftovers and add turn them into this pumpkin egg casserole, lasagna, or spaghetti. Reheating them this way will help ensure they are completely cooked through.
If you decide to reheat your Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burgers as they are, I recommend:
- Place a rack in the top third of your oven and preheat your oven’s broiler to high.
- Put the burgers in a single layer on a baking rack inside of a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. The foil helps with easy cleanup.
- Place the burgers in the oven near the broiler and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the sheet pan, flip the burgers, return them to the oven and cook for another 2 minutes.
- Remove the burgers from the broiler, place on your buns with fresh toppings and serve.
I recommend using the broiler because, like grilling, the quick cooking of the outside help keep the inside juicy. Just a warning, consuming raw or undercooked meat may have consequences. The USDA recommended internal temperature for ground beef is 160°F for killing of any potentially harmful bacteria.
*Note, I don’t recommend reheating fried eggs, as they can get rubbery. Personal preference, though.
Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger
If you want to change up the type of Boursin you use in this burger you absolutely can; all of the variations will taste delightful and unique! If you decide to change the sausage though, proceed at your own risk. Especially if you choose to try a maple sausage. Maple sausage will make the Boursin Stuffed Breakfast Burger even more breakfast-y, but doesn’t pair as well with the garlic & fine herbs Boursin we’re using today. (Hint: If you want a maple kick, put it in your mayo 🙂 ) However, spicy sausage is a fun alternative!
