Ingredients
  • For Burgers:
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves
  • For Buns:
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 Portuguese muffins, halved
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Toppings:
  • 6 slices Gruyere cheese
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
Directions

Saute shallot in olive oil over medium-low heat until softened. Set aside to cool.

To make patties combine ground sirloin, ground chuck, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, sage, and sauteed shallot in a large bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and form patties (6 ounces each). Grill patties (in grill pan) over medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side for medium rare.

While patties are cooking, prepare buns. Whisk eggs in a bowl with milk, salt, and pepper. Dip Portuguese muffin halves in mixture 1 at a time (place each on a plate after dipping). Heat 1 tablespoon butter in saute pan over medium heat. Place 3 muffin halves into pan and fry, flipping once until both sides are golden brown. Place cooked muffins onto plate and cover with foil. Repeat process using 1 tablespoon butter for every batch of 3 muffin halves until all have been cooked.

When patties have been cooked, remove the patties from the grill pan and rest on a half-sheet pan. Top with cheese slices and tent with aluminum foil. Repeat process with the remaining patties.

To assemble the burgers, place 1 patty (with cheese) on bottom half of the Portuguese muffin. Top with prosciutto, spread with 1 tablespoon of sauce, and add top of muffin. Serve.
