Total Time 25 minutes
- 1 lb fresh ground pork
- 2 tablespoons Cuisinart Maple Bacon Seasoning
- 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
- sea salt to taste
- freshly cracked pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 sweet yellow onion cut into strips
- 8 strips bacon
- 4 English muffins
- 4 slices smoked gouda
- 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 4 eggs
Prepare Cuisinart 360° Griddle Cooking Center by seasoning the cooktop, then turn one side to low and the other to medium.
In a large bowl, combine the ground pork, maple bacon seasoning, and dijon mustard. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and form into 4 equal-sized patties slightly wider than the English muffins.
Melt the butter on the low-temp side of the griddle and add the onions. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and allow to cook until caramelized, stirring every few minutes, around 15 minutes.
After the onions have cooked for 5 minutes, add the pork patties to the hotter side of the griddle and allow to cook for 10 minutes, or until heated through, flipping the patties after 5 minutes.
After the patties have cooked for 2-3 minutes, add the bacon to the same side of the griddle as the patties and cook until crispy, around 6 minutes. Transfer to the low-temp side of the griddle to keep warm if needed.
Place English muffins cut-side down on the hotter side of the griddle and toast for 2 minutes. Flip over and transfer to the cooler side and top them with the cheese, putting the gouda on the bottom buns and cheddar on the top buns. Let melt.
With 3 minutes remaining on the onions and patties, crack the eggs onto the hotter side of the griddle and let fry until the whites have set. Assemble the burgers by placing a pork patty on the bottom bun, followed by the the egg. Add two slices of bacon per burger, then add a heaping portion of caramelized onion and add the top bun. Enjoy immediately.
