hamburger buns, split
Tbsp unsalted butter
slices peameal bacon
Tbsp store-bought chipotle mayonnaise
avocado, thinly sliced
tsp vegetable oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black peppercorns, to taste
Armstrong Marble Cheddar Cheese Slices


Step 1

Heat a large pan over medium heat. Butter each half of the buns on both sides.

Step 2

Toast buttered buns in the hot pan, cut side down, pressing slightly until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Set aside on a tray.

Step 3

In the same pan, cook peameal bacon until lightly golden and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, generously spread chipotle mayonnaise on both inner sides of the buns. Top the bottom bun with sliced avocado and peameal bacon.

Step 5

Heat oil in a small non-stick pan over medium heat. Add eggs and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip over using a heatproof rubber spatula. Continue to cook eggs until mostly set but still slightly runny on top, about 2 more minutes.

Step 6

Top eggs with slices of Armstrong Marble Cheddar Cheese. Allow the cheese to melt on the eggs, about 1 minute.

Step 7

Place eggs on peameal bacon, top with the bun lids and enjoy immediately.
