How To Make An Egg-In-The-Hole Campfire Burger


Prep Time

10 mins

Cook Time

10 mins


Four (or more!)


  • 500g beef mince
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 head of lettuce, roughly torn
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • Cucumber pickles
  • Your favourite sauce
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place a large skillet over a medium-hot fire and drizzle in a good glug of olive oil.
  2. Using your hands, grab ¼ of the beef mince and shape it into a patty about 1cm thick. Repeat this process to make four burger patties.
  3. Place your patties onto a chopping board and use a knife or something circular to form a hole in the centre of the patty big enough to hold an egg yolk. Repeat this for all four patties.
  4. Place your patties onto the hot skillet, season with some salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes until nicely browned on the bottom.
  5. Flip your patties, then crack an egg into the centre of each one. Continue to cook for 4-5 minutes, until the egg white has set.
  6. Place a slice of cheese over the top of each patty and cook for another minute, until the cheese has melted and coats the burger.
  7. Now let’s build our burger! Slice your burger buns in half and fill with lettuce, a cheesy, eggy beef patty, tomato, onion and pickles. Smother your chosen sauce all over that burg.
  8. Attempt to consume without ruining that new shirt you recently bought (and promised you’d never stain) with a delicious runny egg.
  9. Pull a face like this…
