Aussie Burger

Aussie burger

In the land that brought us the platypus, is it any surprise that an ordinary burger would evolve into something completely over-the-top? The Aussie burger sets off the patty itself with a sweet, crunchy slice of pineapple and the slightly sharper tang of marinated beets, and tops everything off with a creamy fried egg. It’s an unusual combination, but try just one bite and you’ll be hooked – really! The burger itself is good, but the toppings really put it in a league of its own.

If you like a little spice on top of all that, you can also make a quick fiery mayonnaise by mixing ¼ cup of homemade mayo with 1 tsp. of hot sauce. And don’t be shy about adding extra toppings; pile on the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, or whatever else sounds tasty. The only limit is your imagination – and how much you can physically fit on top of the patty!

You can wrap the whole affair in a lettuce bun to contain it, but even with a wrapper, chowing down on an Aussie burger can get a little messy; it might be easier to just serve everything on a plate. Either way, though, it’s a memorable barbecue-party creation, and sure to become a summer classic.
