Alton Brown Umami Burger

Alton Brown and Umami just created the ultimate breakfast burger

Umami Burger has just unleashed its latest chef collaboration, and this one is sure to wake you up: Behold the Alton Burger, a breakfast burger created with none other than Alton Brown.

With everyone and their mother jumping on the breakfast bandwagon, it's no surprise to see a breakfast burger hitting the scene. We're no strangers to burgers at brunch, and "putting an egg on it" has become practically obligatory.

The Alton Burger kicks things up a notch with a handful of eye-catching ingredients. The burger meat is mixed with bacon lardons (obviously) and topped with cheddar cheese (phew). Things get more serious with the addition of miso-maple bacon, smashed cheesy tots, a fried egg, fried sage and a house-made coffee ketchup. WTF is coffee ketchup? It's a special Umami recipe made with a blend of Stumptown Coffee and the restaurant's signature ketchup.

 To learn more about the burger, watch this video with the mastermind himself. Brown says, "The Alton Burger is an homage to my favorite meal, breakfast, which can be consumed at any time of day." And the all-day breakfast movement marches on.

The Alton Burger is available for $14 starting today through April 24 at participating Umami Burgers nationwide. And if you're worried about not being in tip-top shape after downing one of these bad boys, you can feel better about the fact that $1 from every burger sold will go to the Make-a-Wish foundation.
