We've seen our share of brunch burgers -- even glazed donut ones -- but this is our new champ for a simple reason: the patties. All three of them. The easily-ignored beef layer pales under fried hashbrown and breakfast sausage patties, which make this the shining example of everything that a breakfast sandwich should be. There's also bacon, avocado, and a fried egg, just in case you weren't already swayed.
