For the hamburger patties: in a mixing bowl, add beef, garlic powder, salt, black pepper together, and mix. Then season it with salt and pepper.
Now, pour oil into a skillet and place over medium-high heat; once the skillet becomes hot, add your burger patties, sear them, and cook until the burgers are eventually done.

Continue stirring the mixture until the gravy thickens, and there is no more lump. Add more seasonings, and set it aside. For the egg part, add butter to your skillet and fry the eggs for about 4-5 minutes or until the egg whites have set and edges are crisp.
Once you notice this, remove from heat and set aside.
