Recipe: Aussie Works Burger

My Australian husband first made these burgers a few weeks after arriving in the USA. They became a hit with our family. Theyre a bit messy but delicious. Hunger busting burgers topped with every topping imaginable. Wrap your laughing gear around that. Stretch Crikey Its a meal in one go.

Aussie Works Burger Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 4 eggs

  • 4 slices Canadian bacon

  • 4 pineapple rings

How to Make Aussie Works Burger

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.

  2. When the grill is ready, lightly oil the grilling surface. Form the ground beef into four patties, and grill for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, and fry until soft. Remove the onions from the skillet, and crack the eggs in the same skillet over medium heat. Cook until the yolks are solid, turning over once. Remove eggs, and set aside. Place the Canadian bacon in the same skillet, and fry until toasted. Remove the bacon, and turn the heat to high. Quickly fry the pineapple rings in the bacon drippings just until browned on each side.

  4. To Assemble sandwiches: Set bottom of kaiser roll on a plate, and top with burger, a slice of cheese, a slice of Canadian bacon, one fried egg, fried onions, a few slices of beet, a slice of pineapple, a slice of tomato, and a leaf of lettuce. Decorate the top bun with ketchup, mustard, relish and mayonnaise as desired. Place over the burger. Repeat with remaining burgers.

Aussie Works Burger Reviews

  • Oh WOW..........this was WONDERFUL. I have some friends in Oz and went down to visit them a couple of years ago. This burger was all I heard about from them before I went to visit. This was hands down my favorite food from there. I make it here in the US as well, its just a challange to get folks here to open their minds and eat a burger with beets on it I plan on adding it to my menu at the restaurant I just bought YUMMY

  • This is such a big hit here in Australia (I live in Melbourne, Victoria) that it is a regular part of the menu at all of our Hungry Jacks and McDonalds restaurants. You definitely need to add salt and pepper to the patties, even though it is not in the recipe.

  • These were WONDERFUL The only thing that we might do differently, probably a personal preference, is season the meat before grilling with some salt/pepper/grill seasoning. All of the toppings are WONDERFUL and each adds their own level of enjoyment to this burger We WILL be making this again

  • The only way we ever have burgers is with beetroot However whilst this recipe has all the right fillings for a burger the actual meat patties are flavourless. I added salt & pepper, onion, garlic, dijon mustard, worchestershire sauce & breadcrumbs (to soak up any excess juices or fat whilst cooking). I left out the onion as a filling for the burger because I already added it to the meat. Suggest you play around with the meat flavourings to get something that appeals to your taste.

  • This recipe gets a 5 in our house. We are a household of 5 adults, that REALLY appreciate good food. This burger is top of the line. So many wonderful flavors,all mingling,so well.

  • My husbands comment was, "This has got to be the absolute WORST meal to eat on a first date You cant talk while eating it, you dont want to look at anyone else while theyre eating it, and you dont want anyone else to look at you" :o) As others have aptly noted, the sheer height of this burger is overwhelming--as is its juiciness. However, it has a cacophony of flavors that somehow come together to taste great. I wonder if you could combine many of the ingredients into a bit of an "Aussie Salsa" (pineapple, tomato, relish, beets, etc.)so the overall height was diminished. I think Ill try that next time.

  • When I first read the list of ingredients, I thought, "Gross" (pineapple and eggs together?) but so many people raved about these burgers in the reviews that I decided to give them a chance. Well, first of all, they are completely impractical. They were literally 5 inches high--Even Mick Jagger couldnt get his mouth around that. When we pushed down the top, things would squeeze out and shoot across the table. As for the taste, it wasnt bad, but if I did it again, Id leave off the beets, egg and pineapple which leaves you with your basic bacon cheeseburger. My husband liked them better than I did. I wont make them again unless he requests them.

  • Really - DON"T skip the beets They are incredible on a hamburger. My (aussie) husband talked me into trying and Aussie Works... I cant eat a burger without a beet slice nowGreat recipe - its ok to leave off the eggs and bacon. The pineapple and the beet are the reat taste treat

  • These burgers are a great twist the old stand-by (burgers and fries). I left off the beets, the burger was still the best I ever had and my family agrees

  • Will never have hamburgers the old way again Fantastic

  • Wasnt to my liking. Wont make again.

  • I Used ground turkey instead of beef, but they were still DELICIOUS no one at the party could finish theirs

  • My husband is from Australia and made these wonderful burgers for dinner last week. OMG, they are absolutely delicious The fried egg on the burger is wonderful.....all burgers should have a fried egg Talk about a messy burger - - you wont be able to put it down, but you wont want to because of the yummy taste Give it a try, mate

  • Oh my Goodness These burgers are the best. When I first saw the recipe, I thought how gross is this. Did not change a single thing and would not in the future. Definitely a heart clogger, but well worth it.

  • This burger originated as breakfast food for surfers. These sturdy Aussies are up at dawn. After a few hours surfing they emerge starving and cold. Thats why the burger has egg and bacon. Pineapple is grown in northern Australia and is very popular in many recipes. In Australia beets are used on sandwiches as well as burgers. Dont skip any of the ingredients

  • This is the best combination I left out the pickle though and added some ketchup too. Yummy

  • Just finished eating the "works" burger...all of the interesting toppings are what makes this burger I loved the egg and bacon and pineapple. Next time though, i will make the pattie the way i usually do with spices and stuff it was a little bland. Overall, really good

  • Being an Aussie this went down a treat, no open mind required KarenKT your origins are British too :)

  • This is definately an Aussie burger. I have not made this recipe but I have made them almost exactly the same so really there would be no point, except for eating them of course. ( : The only change I would suggest is to add a bit of flavour to the patty, it should be the star of the show after all. Usually I mix it with some spices and breadcrumbs. There are thousands of recipes out there for patties just find one that suits you. Try this burger and enjoy, its a real treat.

  • This recipe was delish My fiance and I truly enjoyed making it and I took the advice from the raters about adding spices, breadcrumbs and bell bepper to the meat. I also used ground turkey and it was great Thanks for sharing

  • This is delish. I have it at our favorite resturant. Outside of the beets and pineapple, its the same. They call theirs A DAGWOOD BURGER, and it really is. Served with a BIG plate of fries, you cant eat it all. You really ought to try this.

  • The eggs and beets were too much for me and I love beets.

  • This is a unique recipe. my husband is always looking for recipes that have alot of ingedients that are not always thought of for a certain food. the beets are a nice touch. dont knock it until youve tried it.

  • Excellent

  • Okay, not really an Aussie burger.. it has been very americanised The burger pattie needs to have herbs and spices in it, also aussie burgers do not have mayo or pickles/relish. We use real cucumbers and dont forget the grated carrot, and we dont call our ketchup ketchup but tomato sauce which you can get from World Foods.. try this recipe instead

  • This was okay. Not something I would prb make again - way too messy, hard to bite into -- too big, great combos however - just too much.

  • The egg and pineapple may seem weird, but theyre fantastic on a burger. Every time I make a burger now, I like a pineapple slice on it. It makes the burger even juicier

  • Tried this recipe the other day. I have to say, that you have to have a BIG mouth to eat this burger. It wasnt the best burger, but it wasnt bad either. I like to try different things, and believe me, this was different. Thanks.

  • These were wonderful. I found I didnt need a fancy pattie, since there was plenty of other fillings in the burger. Beware though, these are very big and messy burgers, so make sure you have napkins nearby, as well as some hungry people.

  • I loved this burger Very unusual, but an awesome change Im not a burger person, but this is an exception Great flavors, a bit messy, but who cares Thanks

  • Made this recipe to the letter.execpt I used a fresh beet the size of the bun. Funny I could taste the egg. I didnt expect that. Will make again on a slow weekend. I suggest you do too

  • Ive been Down Under a few times - good recipe. You can skip the pineapple and it will still be legit, from my experience (and taste).

  • This was awesome, but very messy to eat. Definitely will make this again Thanks

  • This is just a standard Burger with the lot in Australia. Almost every corner fish n chip shop makes them.

  • Really good combo of flavors, but it would take being able to bite the whole thing to get 5 stars...just too big to get everything in one bite.

  • Im an Aussie girl (Ozzie is how its pronounced). The only thing this needed was herbs or something in the meat pattie. Due to an egg allergy I didnt have one, but you can bet the rest of the family did. Thanks for posting
