When you're having a BBQ with friends and family, it's often important to have a good vegetarian option. A few weeks ago, I discovered this egg burger, and I loved it. I think you'll love it, too.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 1 serving


For the bun:

  • 1 burger bun
  • garlic sauce, to taste
  • BBQ sauce, to taste

For the vegetables:

  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 lettuce leaf

For the eggs:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kurkuma (turmeric)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • Butter, for cooking


  1. In a pan, add a bit of olive oil and butter. Turn the heat to low and allow the oil and butter to heat up.
  2. In a bowl, crack the eggs. Add the cayenne pepper, kurkuma, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cover with a lid. The heat should be medium-low.
  4. Toast the burger bun in a toaster or in the oven.
  5. Chop the tomato into slices.
  6. When your bread is toasted, slice it open. Spread the garlic sauce on one side and the BBQ sauce on the other.
  7. Place the lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the bun, then the baked eggs. Place the tomato slices on top of the egg. Place the top half of the bun on top. Serve and enjoy!


  • Add as many cold vegetables as you like.
  • Try adding feta cheese, as well.

      In The Netherlands, we have an oven where I put the bread in as the package says. I put the egg in a baking pan on the fire (how do you say that in (USA) English?). Haha, yes, I need to learn things! The BBQ sauce is if you like it, you can add your own favorites as you like. I don't make the sauces myself (although, you can). These eggs I use are not scrambled. But you can try that too. I think it is on the stove. I'm sorry I wasn't clear. Apparently I have to learn recipe and kitchen names.


      Eggs are my fave too. Also, they are great in salads. At least, I love to.

      One more clarification, if you please. Is this recipe made on the stove top or in the oven? In the USA baking is done in the oven. Frying and sauteing is done on the stove top. When I make egg sandwiches, I fry the egg on the stove top. Even scrambled eggs (which this appears to be) are done on the stove top.

      Not being familiar with Netherland recipes, I'm not sure what you mean by "bake" and "soft spot". Do you mean cook on low heat on the stove top?

      Agnes, I love egg sandwiches. For how long do you cook the eggs for this recipe? Also, how do you make the garlic sauce? I don't think we have that ready-made in a jar here in the United States.

      If I were to try this recipe, I would omit the bbq sauce because I'm not a fan. But I'd love to try the recipe if you can expound a bit on cooking times and how to make the garlic sauce.

      Eggs definitely one of my staple ingredients at home. Usually, I cook fried eggs, scrambled eggs, and poached eggs. I definitely will eat an egg burger. Thanks for sharing :)
