Remove stems & cut strawberries into quarters & combine in a pot with sugar, water, and vanilla extract.
Simmer over med/low heat until strawberries become soft (but not too mushy)
Whisk eggs, milk and cinnamon in a bowl. Lightly brush mixture on inner sides of both hamburger buns.
Grease or melt a small amount of butter in a pan. Once medium/hot add buns face down and cook for about 2 minutes to turn to french toast.
Add cream cheese to bottom bun.
Get your grill/pan/etc hot for the burgers.
Salt & pepper the ground beef and then divide into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.
Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.
Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
Flip burgers and cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.
Add burger to bun & spoon strawberries and a bit of syrup on top. Enjoy!
