Would you believe this Chala’s Brunch Burger plate is the first time I’ve eaten a burger with a fried egg on top?
The idea of eggs and burgers together didn’t appeal to me until recently . . . and no, I’m not sure what I was thinking back then.
But here is what I discovered at Chala’s Wood Fire Grill in the Las Cruces town of Mesilla a few weeks past.
I learned how both the flavors AND the textures in the juicy burger and the egg complement each other. A very good thing.
What else goes into a Chala’s Brunch Burger?
And do you see that gimongous slice of thick bacon in between the burger and egg, on top of the cheese?
Oh. my goodness.
What, I ask you, except for maybe ice cream, doesn’t bacon make better?
And crowning the whole thing with green chile jam ~ can I PLEASE take a jar of this stuff home? ~ made it G-R-E-A-T.
In short, this wood fire grilled beauty was one of the best burgers I’ve had in a LOOONG time. With the flavorful fries, the Chala’s Brunch Burger is the perfect brunch or lunchtime meal.
While hubby L. says the Chala’s Steak & Eggs is the best steak and eggs he has ever had in Las Cruces.
And the man KNOWS his steak & eggs.
If I ask for Steak & Eggs instead of the Brunch Burger next time out, it won’t be to confirm his statement. I’ll be doing it to enJoy ANOTHER winning dish at Chala’s Wood Fire Grill worth writing about.
