  • Yield: 4 servings

  • Prep time: 15 minutes

  • Cook time: 30 minutes

  • Total time: 45 min


  • 4 Large Braswell Family Farms eggs, fried

  • 2 poblano peppers

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef

  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped

  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp. paprika

  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. pepper

  • 4 pretzel buns

  • 4 lettuce leaves

  • 1 tomato, sliced

  • 1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled


  1. In a skillet or on the grill, roast poblano peppers over medium-high heat. Turn the peppers on all sides with tongs to cook evenly. Skin should be blistered and lightly charred. Immediately place roasted peppers in a plastic bag. Seal bag and steam for 10 minutes.

  2. Spray a frying pan with cooking oil and place on medium-high heat. Break eggs, one at a time, and cook until desired doneness. Cover and keep on very low heat.

  3. Remove peppers from bag and rub off charred skin with fingers or a paper towel. Skin will peel off easily. Remove poblano stems and seeds and slice open to scrape veins and remaining seeds with a small knife. Slice in large strips and keep warm.

  4. In the meantime, place ground beef in a medium bowl. Add onion, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Mix with hands until all ingredients have combined. Divide into 4 patties.

  5. Grill or cook patties in a cast iron skillet on stove top for 3-5 minutes on each side.

  6. Place cooked patties on bottoms of sliced pretzel buns. Add lettuce, tomato, pepper strips, blue cheese and top with fried egg and pretzel bun top.
