When I worked in a burger joint in college, someone once requested a fried egg on top of their hamburger. I remember scratching my head and thinking they were nuts. Well, I decided to do some research on where this originated. Japan, Hawaii, Australia? In Texas it’s called the Texan burger. Red Robin has a burger with an egg on it. Meatloaf is made eggs. But I couldn’t find anywhere on the internet of who started this. But I will admit I am a sucker for trying new things. So I decided to fire up a hamburger and egg and I will admit it wasn’t bad. I threw a jalapeno and onions on it to spice it up.
