Ingredients

 Everything’s just a little different (dare we say better?) Down Under – even the burger, done in a classic style with beets, pineapple, bacon and a fried egg.

Ingredients:
12 ounces ground Australian lamb
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small onion, finely diced
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 slices cheddar cheese

To Serve:
2 hamburger buns, split and toasted
butter
2 lettuce leaves
1 tomato, sliced
4 slices pickled beets
pineapple, thinly sliced
tomato ketchup
4 bacon strips
2 eggs

Method

Method:
Place the lamb, garlic, onion in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix together. Using clean hands, massage the burger mix until combined. Shape the mixture into two patties, place on a plate, cover and refrigerate up to 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Heat oil in a large, non-stick fry pan over medium heat. Cook the patties for 3 minutes on each side or until almost cooked through.

Transfer to a baking sheet and top each patty with a slice of cheese. Place in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until cheese melts. While cheese is melting, cook bacon and eggs in fry pan.

Assembly:
Spread the hamburger bun base with butter then layer lettuce, tomato, beets, lamb patty, pineapple, tomato ketchup, bacon and egg. Cover with bun tops and serve.
