Fried egg burger

Sometimes even a simple sandwich can be turned into an opportunity to have a proper lunch with the family in a healthy, fun way. Today we're making a light chicken or turkey burger in a bun with a fried egg. Its yolk will break inside the bread roll making it wonderfully succulent and creating a pleasant contrast with the crispy lettuce and tomato. In short, a healthy Italian-style alternative to American fast food!

Ingredients

Preparation

Cook the burgers on both sides in a frying pan. Set aside. In the same pan, using a pastry ring which is the same size as the burger and bun, cook the fried eggs. Each burger will be served in a roll with one fried egg. Cut the bun in half. Add a thin layer of mayonnaise, then a layer of lettuce and tomatoes, then the burger and finally the egg. Cover with the other half of the bun and enjoy!

Tips
If you want you can substitute beef for the chicken or turkey burgers. And you can also add a slice of cheese: the overall result will of course be heavier and rather more indulgent!
Trivia
The burger is, originally, simply a patty of minced beef. But this little beef 'steak' had such good fortune and popularity that today when one talks about a hamburger one immediately thinks of it in a bread roll!
