The Good Morning Burger

I always strive for accuracy whenever possible in my recipes, but I just didn’t feel like using 18 ounces of beef for The Good Morning Burger recipe. A standard 6 ounce patty, when combined with all the other wonderful, magical, animal parts on the burger still took me two separate sittings to eat.


  • 1 Hamburger Bun
  • 18 ounces ground beef (I used 6 ounces)
  • Rich, Creamery Butter
  • 2 Slices of Bacon
  • 1 Ham Steak
  • 1 Egg


Fashion your hamburger patty however you like (egg, bread crumbs, spices) and cook until medium. When the hamburger patty is cooked soak in rich, creamery butter.


Meanwhile, fry up the bacon and ham steak. Fry the egg in the bacon fat for extra deliciousness and fat content. Assemble your burger in the following order: bun, butter soaked hamburger patty, bacon, ham steak, egg, bun. Attempt to bite into the burger, realize that’s not going to work and eat with a knife and fork.


When the Good Morning Burger came out in 1992 it was probably conceived as “over the top” by the writers. What a difference 20+ years makes! We now live in a world of every fast food chain and local diner trying to come up with a “this thing will kill you if you eat it” menu item. Overall, this burger was quite tasty. I already knew that beef and pork were best friends, but I wouldn’t have guessed that unfertilized chicken egg would factor in so well. The Good Morning Burger required two sittings to complete, but I did eventually finish it.

Hello, I’ve always wondered. Who was the voice actor for the words “rich creamery butter” ?

After all this years it still looks delicious. Nice try but it doesn’t top the Simpsons version


Every time you wrote “rich creamery butter” I imagined it being said the same way Homer said “sweet can” in Homer Badman.

Topping burgers with butter actually is a thing. Never heard of putting a fried egg on a butterburger, however. I’ve had regular burgers topped with an egg, however, and butterburgers frequently have bacon as well. All three, plus ham, is just too much.


Agreed, especially considering how much butter I put on. Next time I make this though, I will need a bigger bun!

I’ve wanted to try this for years! For the longest time, I thought that ‘creamery butter’ was a word that they made up to describe butter that was super creamy…


I was also surprised by this! What’s funny is that I’ve been buying butter for years and just never paid attention to the packaging.
