- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon drained prepared horseradish
- 12 ounces ground beef
- 8 ounces bulk Italian sausage
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
- 4 English muffins (or burger buns), split and toasted
- 1 vine-ripe tomato, thickly sliced into 4 pieces
- 1 cup baby arugula
- 4 large eggs
- For the dressing, stir the mayonnaise, mustard, and horseradish together in a small bowl and set aside.
- For the burgers, gently mix together the ground beef, sausage, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Divide the meat into 4 pieces and form each piece into a 4-inch patty.
- Melt the butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the patties. Cook patties until well browned—or about 3 minutes—then flip. Top the patties with cheese and continue to cook until the cheese is melted.
- Spread the toasted muffins, or burger buns, with the mustard dressing, then top with a meat patty and tomato.
- Crack the eggs into the skillet with the sausage drippings and cook to your preference.
- Place an egg on each burger and finish with baby arugula on the English muffin or burger bun.
