Aussie beef burger with the works

  • 250g lean beef mince
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 drops Tabasco├é┬« sauce
  • 1 splash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • olive oil
  • 2 sesame seed burger rolls
  • 4 slices streaky bacon
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 handful shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 6 thin slices tomato
  • 4 slices pickled beetroot
  • 2 slices good Cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices tinned pineapple
  • 2 squirts tomato ketchup
  • 2 squirts American mustard
  • In a mixing bowl add the mince, salt, pepper, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and minced onion. Mix well using your hands and shape into 2 burgers. Put on a plate, cover with cling film and chill for an hour or prepare up to 24 hours in advance.
  • Heat a frying pan with olive oil to high heat and add the burgers. Seal well and turn the heat down to medium. Alternatively brush the burgers with oil and BBQ, griddle or grill. Cook to your liking.
  • Meanwhile, split the burger buns in half and toast under a grill or on top of a BBQ. Remove and place on a plate. Grill the bacon. As all this is happening also fry the sliced onion and fry the eggs to your liking. (Eggs work best flipped for this burger.)
  • On the bottom burger bun add the lettuce, tomato and beetroot. Now when cooked add the burger, cheese, egg, bacon and pineapple. Top with fried onions. On the burger lid spread the tomato ketchup and mustard.
