A Cheeseburger and a Fried Egg

I follow a couple of people on Instagram who have posted pictures of Cheeseburgers with Fried Eggs.   And then my #1 Son recently told me he had eaten a cheeseburger with a fried egg on it for lunch at a local restaurant, and it was great!

So . . . this week we had a cheeseburger with a fried egg for supper.

Cudjoe proclaimed it to be the best cheeseburger he had eaten in a long time.  I am taking that as a compliment!

I am playing around with different settings on my camera, and I took these pictures very hurriedly because we were sitting down for supper, and I didn't want our supper to get cold.  

I am really, really considering taking a photography class to learn how to use my DSLR at a local junior college.

All but one of these pictures are taken with the close-up setting on my DSLR and one of them on the manual setting.  The sun was very low in the sky; so I had very little natural light.  

There's really no recipe involved here.  I fried a ground chuck patty in a frying pan with a little butter added.  Why not, right?  I melted a slice of good, old American cheese on top of the burger.  Again you might ask why American cheese?  Because that's what Cudjoe likes.

I used brioche buns, and after I fried the burgers and removed them from the frying pan, I toasted the buns just a little bit in the pan.

I placed a piece of Romaine lettuce on the bottom bun, then, the cheeseburger, a slice of onion, a slice of tomato, and then the fried egg.  (By the way, I sautéed the onions for my cheeseburger because I do not like raw onions).

Cudjoe fried the eggs for me because I don't do a pretty job of frying eggs.  Probably because I rarely, almost never eat fried eggs. I like mine scrambled or poached, thank you very much.  And he does the egg poaching as well around our house because, well, he's better at it!

I added Miracle Whip to his burger because that's what he likes and mustard to mine and added the bun to the top.

And as they say in Hollywood, that's a wrap!
