With summer currently hiding in Ireland I needed a old Aussie favorite to remind me of sunnier times Down Under. The traditional version of this burger is available across Australia in your local take away joint and is commonly called the ‘Hamburger With The Lot’.

This is a good recipe to do with friends on the BBQ. Warning… This is a very messy meal to eat. But trust me… It is delicious.


The Aussie Burger – Veggie Style (makes 4)

4 of your favourite frozen veggie burgers
(like Good Life, Spicy Bean Quarterpounders with Chipotle Chilli)
4 free-range eggs
4 slices fresh pineapple
handful alfalfa sprouts
2 large red onions
1 avocado sliced
2 medium cooked beetroots sliced
organic low sugar tomato sauce
4 brown pita breads

Grill your burgers and pineapple slices until hot all the way through.
Cut the onions into rings and saute in a pan until soft.
Fry the eggs until they are cooked the way you like them.
Lightly toast the pita breads and cut them in half.
Lay one cooked burger on each bottom half of the bread followed by a fried egg. Layer with the remaining ingredients and put the top of the bread on.
Grab hold with both hands and enjoy!
