Aussie Burgers

This recipe will make a traditional Aussie hamburger which is very satisfying. It’s simple to prepare and popular with the family. Serves 4.


1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 lb of beef mince
1/2 cup of dried breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
1 egg for beef patties
tomato or bbq sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 eggs
4 hamburger buns, which have been toasted
1 cup of lettuce, shredded
8 tomato slices
4 beetroot slices
Cooking Instructions

Heat barbecue plate and brush with oil. Cook the onion for a 2 minutes, or until soft. Combine with mince, breadcrumbs, worcestershire sauce, egg, salt and pepper and shape into 4 patties.

Cook patties for 8-10 minutes each side until they are done, on either the BBQ plate or grill depending on which flavor you prefer.

Cook sliced onion for a few minutes on hot plate until soft and brown.

Cook eggs in lightly oiled egg rings, as desired.

Cut hamburger buns in half horizontally and toast cut sides of the hamburger buns on barbecue grill to make them crispy.

On each base, put some lettuce, tomato, beetroot, cooked beef pattie, egg, onions, and tomato or bbq sauce. Top with toasted hamburger bun.

It would be considered an aussie burger with “the works” if you also included pineapple, bacon and cheese, but these are optional.
