My husband is big on eggs and bacon, so I wanted to merge his breakfast favorites with a grilled burger for an over-the-top treat. Topping it with my homemade blackberry jam sealed the deal. —Tina Janssen, Walworth, Wisconsin


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened and divided
  • 8 slices Texas toast
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2-1/2 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup seedless blackberry spreadable fruit
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 8 cooked bacon strips


  1. Combine ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, steak seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties. Grill burgers, covered, on a greased grill rack over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 4-5 minutes on each side.
  2. Spread 2 tablespoons butter over 1 side of toast slices. Grill, butter side down, until golden brown. Remove burgers and toast from heat; keep warm.
  3. Increase heat to high. Heat oil in a large skillet placed on the grill rack. Drop hash browns by 1/2 cupfuls into oil; press to flatten. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Fry, covered, until golden brown and crisp, 12-15 minutes on each side; add oil as needed. Remove and keep warm.
  4. Reduce heat to medium. In same skillet, heat remaining butter. Add eggs; fry over easy.
  5. To assemble, spread blackberry spread over 4 slices of toast. Layer each slice with 1 hash brown patty, 1 burger, 1 fried egg, 1 cheese slice and 2 bacon strips. Top with remaining toast slices.
