As the flames dance and the aromas fill the air, the anticipation for the Poblano Burgers grows. The sizzle of the grill sets the stage for a culinary masterpiece. The vibrant green of the poblano peppers adds a touch of color to the scene, promising a burst of smoky goodness with every bite.

Once the burgers are perfectly grilled, it's time to add that extra touch of indulgence - a golden fried egg with a runny yolk. As the yolk oozes out, it creates a luscious sauce that melds with the juicy meat and charred peppers. The combination of flavors is a symphony for the taste buds, a fusion of smoky, savory, and rich notes that culminate in pure satisfaction.


  • 4 Large Rosemary Farm 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 lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, sliced

  1. Place poblano peppers over a medium-high flame or a skillet on medium-high setting. Turning on all sides with tongs to roast evenly. Skin should be blistered and lightly charred. Immediately place roasted peppers in a plastic bag. Seal bag and steam for 10 minutes.

  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. Slice open and scrape veins and remaining seeds with a small knife. Slice in large strips. 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.
