Thank you, Koren Ramos, for this recipe! This burger was a runner up in the Art of the Burger social media contest. Tocino is sweet, cured pork popular in the Philippines, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. This style of burger was crafted by Filipino chefs, and skyrocketed in popularity after being featured at the Food & Wine Classic in 2022 for its amazing innovation. Koren has brought this trendy burger to your table—with a yummy breakfast spin! Tip: try it on an Ube bun!
