Corn Fritter Breakfast Burgers

by Erin

This breakfast burger is not for the weak with bacon, a beef-sausage patty, cheddar cheese, a corn fritter, and a fried egg on top all sandwiched between a toasted English muffin. Don’t forget the maple aioli!

Welcome to #BurgerMonth 2015! This delicious event is hosted by my girl Kita of Girl Carnivore and she has rounded up enough bloggers to bring you a different burger recipe for every day of the month. Make sure you check out her kick off post for more information!


Since it’s the beginning of the month I decided to start you off right with a burger you can enjoy for breakfast. Or for dinner if you want to do the whole breakfast for dinner thing, which I completely support. Either way this monster of a burger will leave you satisfied for hours. A toasted English muffin is spread with a maple-bourbon aioli before being sandwiched around a pile of bacon, a beef-sausage patty, cheddar cheese, a corn fritter, and a fried egg. All that’s left to desire is a side of crispy hash browns.

Corn Fritter Breakfast Burgers 3

One year ago: Bourbon Pecan Pie for One

Four years ago: Deviled Strawberries


Serves 4



1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 Tbsp maple syrup

1/2 Tbsp bourbon (optional)


4 slices bacon, halved

1 lb. ground beef

3/4 lb. breakfast sausage

Salt and pepper, to taste

4 slices sharp cheddar cheese

4 eggs

4 English muffins, toasted


1 egg

1/4 cup milk

1 cup pancake mix

1 (14.75 oz.) can cream style corn

Cooking oil to depth of 1 inch


  1. For the aioli: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. For the burgers: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Leave grease in pan.
  3. While the bacon cooks prepare the burgers: In a large bowl mix together the two meats and season with salt and pepper to taste. Form into 4 patties.
  4. When the bacon is done cooking, place burgers in the same pan and cook in the bacon grease until browned on each side and cooked through to desired doneness. Top with a slice of cheese and remove from pan.
  5. While the burgers cook, prepare the fritters: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Add pancake mix and stir until mixed. Fold in corn until just incorporated.
  6. In a second large skillet, heat oil to 350 degrees (or test by dropping a small bit of batter into the oil, it should sizzle immediately). Drop batter by 1/4 cup-fuls and cook until golden, about 1-2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towel-lined plate.
  7. While the fritters cook, crack 4 eggs into the pan in which the burgers were cooked and cook a few minutes until the whites are set.
  8. To assemble: Spread aioli on the bottom half of each English muffin. Top with bacon, burger, corn fritter, egg, and the top half of the English muffin. Serve immediately.

[…] of bacon on the side! I have actually used this recipe to also make banana corn fritter, corn fritter breakfast burgers, and even corn fritter shortcakes with maple whipped […]

This sounds outrageously good. And caloric. If you eat all these wonderful things you make, how do you stay so skinny?

I definitely need to try this one. Our printer is down now(Does not work with Windows 10). I will have to remember to print this out when I get a new one.

You can always save it as a PDF on your desktop until you get the printer situation fixed! It was super yummy and definitely worth breaking the diet for :-D
