  1. Toast the burger buns cut side down in a dry frying pan until lightly toasted. Set aside.
  2. Shape the sausagemeat into 4 patties, roughly the size of the brioche buns.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan to a medium-high heat and fry the sausage patties for 3-4 mins each side, flattening them down with a spatula. You want them nice and golden and crispy.
  4. Top each pattie with a slice of cheese and continue cooking until the cheese melts. If you have a lid, use this.
  5. Remove the patties from the frying pan and add the other teaspoon of oil. Fry the eggs for 3-4 mins until crispy round the edges.
  6. To serve, spread the cream cheese on the base of the bun then arrange the avocado slices on top, followed by the sausage patty, fried egg and gherkins, if you like. Drizzle over ketchup or sriracha sauce to serve.
