For The Chili Mayo Sauce

  • ¼ c ketchup
  • ¼ c mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp hot sauce (Sriracha or your favorite)

For The Burger

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 hamburger patties *
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced into thick rings **
  • 4 pineapple rings, patted dry **
  • ¾ c canned beets, drained, sliced, and patted dry***
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 4 hamburger buns


  • Preheat your grill to a medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, mix together ketchup, mayonnaise, and hot sauce. Set aside.
  • Fry your bacon in a medium skillet over medium high heat until cooked to your preferred done-ness. Remove the bacon from the skillet and place on a paper towel lined plate. 
  • Crack the four eggs into the hot bacon grease and fry the eggs until the whites are cooked, but the yolks are still jiggly, 2-3 minutes. Remove the fried eggs from the pan. 
  • Place the burger patties on the pre-heated grill. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, until firm and cooked to your desired done-ness. (Actual cooking time will depend on the thickness of the burgers and the heat of your grill. If using packaged burgers, refer to the package instructions.) Remove the burgers from the grill and let rest for 2-3 minutes, covered with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  • Construct the burgers by layering lettuce, tomato, pineapple, beets, and onion on one half of the bun, followed by the burger patty. Continue, layering the cheese, bacon, and finally the fried egg. Top everything off with the top bun, slathered with the chili mayo.
  • Un-hinge your jaw and get ready to enjoy this epic tower of a burger!


To Make Your Own Burger Patties:
INGREDIENTS 1 lb ground beef, 85% fat, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp ground black pepper. 
INSTRUCTIONS In a medium bowl, mix together beef, salt, and pepper. Divide the meat into four portions and shape each portion into a 3 ½ - 4 inch patty. Set the patties aside.
** If you like, you can grill your onions and pineapple rings. -- Take a toothpick and push it through the side of the onion slices to hold the rings together on the grill. Brush the onion slices and pineapple rings with a little olive oil and grill until you get nice grill marks. 
***While not the most traditional, we do enjoy these loaded burgers with pickled beets also.
