Aussie Burger (with the lot)

pro tip: slice your toppings thin. Less than 1/4″ or they’ll overwhelm the patty. Especially the pineapple

The Sauce

  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp sriracha

The Burger

  • 1 brioche bun halved
  • 1/3 lb ground beef medium grind (80/20)
  • 1 pickle cut into rounds
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1 large onion sweet, cut into rings
  • 1 strip bacon thick cut, cut in half

  • 1 slice pickled beet
  • 1 leaf iceberg lettuce
  • salt
  • butter
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese


The Sauce

  • Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside

The Burger

  • Grill the onions and pineapple in a grill pan (or bbq) on medium-high until brown grill marks form, about 2 minutes per side
  • heat a medium cast iron skillet to medium-high and fry the bacon to firm and dark brown, but not crisp, remove from pan and set aside
  • Form the ground beef into a loosely packed ball, press it into the pan enough to form about a 3/4" patty, or until its circumference is slightly more than the bun's. Cook 3 minutes per side If you have a burger press leave it on the patty while it cooks, but dont press hard anymore
  • when there's 1 minute left on the second side of the burger top it with the cheese, add 1 tsp of water to the pan and cover with a lid for the last minute to melt the cheese
  • Remove the patty from the pan and add the egg, cook til whites set, but yolk remains runny- about 3 minutes
  • Assemble the burger- heel,patty, pickles, tomatoes, bacon, pineapple, onions, egg, beet,lettuce, and spread the sauce on the top bun
