Breakfast Burgers with Coffee Gravy

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 6 burgers 1x


  • 1 batch multi-purpose dough
  • 1.5 lb ground breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 C coffee
  • 1/2 C beef broth
  • 1/4 tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp tapioca starch, plus extra for rolling out dough
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, or other fat for greasing griddle
  • 6 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Roll out multi-purpose dough on a surface lightly dusted with some tapioca starch and cut out circles using a coffee mug. You should roll the dough thick enough to get 6 circles or 5 plus a 6th from the dough scraps. These will at least double in height in the oven.
  3. Place these biscuits on a baking sheet and bake 10-13 minutes. They shouldn't brown much but a toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when they are fully cooked.
  4. While the biscuits bake, form 6 patties from the sausage. Cook these in a skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally. To prevent burning, adding a small amount of water to the skillet and covering with a lid can help them cook more evenly. Once the sausage is fully cooked, leave the fat in the skillet but transfer the sausage to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.
  5. Keep the skillet of fat at the same heat and whisk in the coffee, broth, salt, pepper, and molasses. You can adjust the molasses more or less to taste if you want.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the tablespoon of tapioca starch and cold water. Allow the gravy to come to a boil then whisk this starch mixture in. Once thickened, you can remove from heat.
  7. Melt coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs, one at a time and season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the eggs to cook to your preferred doneness.
  8. To assemble the burgers, slice the biscuits in half and place a sausage patty and fried egg between each. You can either pour the gravy right on top of the sausage and egg or just dip the burgers into the gravy if you're low on napkins.
