A Lot on Your Aussie Burger

Pineapple and beetroot? Serious? Yes! Who dares wins!

But this is not all. The Aussie Burger is also called “Burger with a lot” due to its many layers. Beetroot and pineapple are characteristic ingredients, and so is a sunny side up egg. Add your onions, bacon, or cheese, just as you like your favorite burger anyway.

Tasmanian Tomato Salad Side

Add a fruity tomato side salad with a kick from precious Tasmanian pepperberries, also called Mountain Pepper. Notice the slightly purple color that the berries develop in the vinaigrette.

Variations
  • Substitute beef with other meat, or with large portabello mushrooms.

This Black Bean Burger is only one of countless vegetarian burgers that are created to date. The history of meatless fried patties goes back to 1969 when the first recipe appeared. In the early eighties, the first commercial version hit the British market and was an immediate success. However, the term "veggie burger" long referred to as a hamburger with vegetables on top.
