The Egg Burger with Tartar Sauce is a delightful twist on the classic burger, offering a light yet flavorful experience.

This burger combines the richness of a perfectly cooked egg with the zesty and tangy notes of homemade tartar sauce. Paired with crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and a soft, toasted bun, this burger is not only delicious but also provides a unique and satisfying meal.


For the Burger:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 burger buns, preferably brioche, toasted
  • Fresh lettuce leaves
  • 1 ripe tomato, sliced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Butter or oil for frying

For the Tartar Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Preparing the Tartar Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chopped dill pickle, red onion, capers, dill (if using), and lemon juice.
  2. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Cooking the Eggs:

  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add a small amount of butter or oil.
  2. Crack the eggs into the skillet, being careful not to break the yolks.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny. For over-easy eggs, flip and cook for an additional 1 minute.

Assembling the Burger:

  1. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of each toasted bun.
  2. Add a slice of tomato.
  3. Carefully place a fried egg on top of the tomato.
  4. Generously spread the tartar sauce over the egg.
  5. Top with the other half of the bun.


  • Serve immediately, ensuring the yolk is still runny when bitten into.
