Directions

Step 1 Of 5
1
Preheat grill to 450°F.
2
Combine ground chuck, garlic, onion, sage, cayenne, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce in a medium-size bowl and form 4 patties. Using your thumb, press an indentation into the center of each patty to ensure even cooking.
3
Place patties on the grill and cook to desired doneness, 7-10 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Top with cheese a minute or two before removing the patties from the grill. Close the lid to melt the cheese.
4
Meanwhile, preheat a cast-iron skillet on your side burner or the other side of the grill. Melt the butter and fry the eggs.
5
Spread a little mayonnaise on each bottom bun and stack with lettuce. Add a burger, egg and bun topper. Insert a toothpick into the center of the top bun through to the burger to release the egg yolk. Serve and enjoy.
