With all the hamburgers on show I thought I had better post mine up.  Yes I ate two of these “Buster Burgers” so named after a camping trip years ago when my mates reckon they were real hunger busters.  Afterwards tried to kill a keg a Leigh’s Lager – yes pure gluttony I know.

Buster Burgers:

Woolworth large Brioche hamburger buns lightly toasted then buttered and drowned in smoky BBQ sauce, 125 g beef patties cooked slow and low, hamburger cheese, bacon, fried egg, tomato and cos lettuce.

For the patties I use 1 x cup of bread crumbs or panko crumbs mixed in with 1 x finely chopped brown onion, 2 x heaped tablespoons of crushed garlic and 1 x level tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce.  Leave the bread crumbs stirred in this mix for a couple of hours to absorb the all the garlic/onion flavours.

Then add 500 g lean beef mince, half a cup of freshly chopped parsley (flat leaf or continental) and 1 beaten egg to help bind it all together.  Season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper and really work the meat into the mix, then make 4 large patties.  Separate each with cling wrap and leave these in the fridge for another 24 hours as this really brings out the flavours.

Aussie style!

Just beef and salt and pepper

USA!

 

Both have merits for sure.

I tried the USA style recently and was REALLY surprised at how well it works.

You got it mate, USA style 😁

Just don't try to explain to an American the benefits of beetroot 🙄

They look good CC.  Yep we had one of those Tupperware burger thingamajigs and used it for years.  Used to add raw onion rings beetroot and pineapple to our burgers but they were just a bit messy in the end. 

We morphed away from raw onion rings to BBQ onion and then to caramelized onion for our burgers but now find when we incorporate the onion into the Pattie it’s nicer and neater.  We don’t try to emulate a USA burger at all just try to make a super tasty hunger buster for the staving hordes.

Lately I have been incorporating a small grated zucchini and a carrot as well into the patties to make them into a sort of vegie burger.  They are very nice as well.

Mmm, might have to do some of these soon.

@iBooz2 @Cheap Charlie.  @Classic Brewing Co.  @beach_life

all of your burgers look the business fellas 👍

Must admit though, if the damned thing is so high you can’t eat the b*stard

You would need a big mouth 🤣 The last time I had a burger on the road when I was travelling it was awful, dripping with fat, I could hardly eat it, but I must admit our Pubs & Craft Breweries do a great job. Home-made burgers are the best though. 🍔

Lentils and sausage in a jar!

 

 

I take it you don’t find that in your neck of the woods…Done properly it’s not bad at all, out of a jar, well, if you’re hungry it’ll do

 I use a burger press to compress the mince, no binders, turns out great and doesn't fall apart. Just beef and salt and pepper.

Nothing wrong with those little rippers mate, might have to give this a crack.

Pezza, love me mixed grills. Especially love a good pub mixey - if you can ever find one that is. Us city slickers have to head to the bush if you want one these days.

Yes, if you come a dinky-di Outback Aussie Pub you can still find them, I came across some beauties, ask for one now & they have never heard of them, they just point to what's on the overpriced menu.
