Maple Sriracha Sausage Gravy Brunch Burger

I have been testing this maple sriracha sausage gravy for a recipe in the tots cookbook, and I am pretty obsessed with it. It’s liquid crack! I had some leftover so I made a brunch burger and totally smothered the thing with the gravy. It was a messy disaster to eat but I savored every single bite! So much that I ate two of them! This thing is like pure hangover antidote.
First cook up the sausage and onion with some butter. Add in flour and cook for a few minutes just to cook the raw flour flavor out of it. Add in some milk and whisk to combine. Bring to a boil and it will thicken up. I let this cool a little too long before adding the maple and sriracha and it got that skin on the surface. No problem for the recipe, just stir it up and it will be fine. It just made the picture look weird. Make your burger, with cheese of course, and pop it on top of a toasted english muffin. Then put an aggressive amount of sausage gravy on it. Put an egg on it, and sandwich it with the top of the english muffin. Ohhhhhhh man this is good. Egg yolk and so much gravy makes for a messy burger, but it’s totally worth it. The maple, sriracha, and sausage combine to form a really sweet, spicy, and savory gravy. Pairing it with the egg and english muffin make it perfect for brunch, but you could put this on any burger and it would be amazing. Or any food item for that matter.  Or really just any object.
Look with me for a minute at the ridiculous melty cheese situation happening here.
