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