Fresh veggies are delicious, as is anything with a fried egg on top. So fire up the grill, pick up a few of your all-time favorite veggie burgers, and take them one step further with a knockout roasted red pepper sauce and charred zucchini rounds piled high. That first bite might be messy (as all good burgers are)!

By: Naturally Ella


For the burgers, vegetables, and eggs:

  • 4 of your favorite vegetable burgers
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 large Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 to 2 handfuls arugula, for topping
  • 1 small zucchini (8 ball zucchini work best)
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

For the pepper sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


To make the burgers, vegetables, and eggs:

Step 1

Light your grill. Prep the vegetables by cutting the zucchini and onion into 1/2-inch thick rounds. Leave the pepper as is.

Step 2

Brush the vegetables with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and place on the grill along with the vegetable burgers.

Step 3

Grill everything, turning occasionally, until lightly charred. (The red pepper should be blistered, like a roasted red pepper. It may need to hang out on the grill a bit longer.)

Step 4

While everything is grilling, fry your eggs with ghee, spooning the ghee over the egg whites and yolks until set to your liking.

To make the pepper sauce:

When the vegetables and burgers are done grilling, remove the charred skin and seeds from the red pepper then place the skinned red pepper in a food processor or blender along with 1 slice (4 to 5 rings) of the onion and the remaining ingredients for the pepper sauce. Blend until smooth, tasting and adding more parsley or salt as desired.

To assemble the burgers:

Toast the buns on the grill and layer with the red pepper sauce, arugula, burger, grilled zucchini, extra onions, and a fried egg. Serve while hot.
