Aussie Burger with the Lot Aussie Burger with the Lot Romulo Yanes
Our favorite burger for grilling on the 4th of July (and anytime, really).

  • Ingredients: Ingredients (burger patties):

    500g ground beef
    1 onion, chopped finely
    1 egg
    ⅓ cup gluten free breadcrumbs
    2 Tbsp ketchup
    1 tsp gluten free Worcestershire sauce
    salt and pepper, if desired

    Ingredients (toppings):

    2 Tbsp oil of choice
    2 large onions, cut into thin rings
    4 slices cheese (optional)
    4 eggs
    4 slices bacon (or more- go on!)
    4 gluten free hamburger buns
    1 large tomato, sliced
    8 pickled beets slices
    4 pineapple rings
    shredded lettuce, as desired
    ketchup, as desired

  • Instructions: The 4th of July is nearly upon us, and with it comes plenty of picnics, BBQs, and delicious burgers! While we begrudgingly do admit that you Americans have some pretty scrumptious burgers, there's still nothing that can beat a good ol' Aussie burger. Our version of the classic picnic food has got everything you'd expect – the all beef patty, aged cheese, onions, and bacon. Oh, but we couldn't just stop there! For a taste of true Aussie flavor, you've got to add in some fresh grilled pineapple, beetroot, and a fried egg! Seriously, I know this probably sounds a little weird but one bite and you'll be a believer, I guarantee it! Make up a batch with our gluten free hamburger buns just in time for the 4th of July! Our recipe makes 4 burgers.

    photo disclaimer: we ate all our burgers before we snapped a photo, so the photo is a stock photo. Pretty close to what ours looked like, though. We recommend more beetroot ;)

    Method:
    1. Into a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, chopped onion, one egg, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix with your hands until well combined.
    2. Divide mixture into four equal parts and make each part into a patty shape. Set aside.
    3. Meanwhile, heat one tablespoon of the oil in pan. Add the onion rings and cook over medium heat until browned. Drain and keep warm.
    4. Heat a grill or skillet and brush with oil.
    5. Cook the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Place a cheese slice on each patty, if desired.
    6. As the patties cook, fry the bacon and eggs. Set aside.
    7. Toast the gluten free buns and place their bases on serving plates.
    8. On to each bun place lettuce, tomato, two beet slices, and one slice of pineapple. The meat patty goes on top of that, over which you place the onion rings, bacon, one egg, and ketchup. Top it all off with a gluten free bun.
    9. Enjoy with gluten free crisps and an ice cold gluten free beer as you watch the 4th of July fireworks!
