Aussie Burger

Tasmanian Aussie Burger

The Aussie Burger is also called "Burger with a lot" due to its many layers. Characteristic ingredients are beetroot,  pineapple, and a sunny side up egg. 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.
