    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for high heat.
    2. When the barbecue is ready, lightly oil the cooking grate. Form the minced beef into four burgers and barbecue for 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
    3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onions and fry until soft. Remove the onions from the frying pan and crack the eggs in the same frying pan over medium heat. Cook until the yolks are solid, turning over once. Remove eggs and set aside. Place the bacon in the same frying pan and fry until done. 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: Set bottom of sandwich roll on a plate and top with a burger, a slice of cheese, a rasher of bacon, one fried egg, fried onions, a few slices of beetroot, a slice of pineapple, a slice of tomato and a leaf of lettuce. Decorate the top bun with ketchup, mustard, pickle and mayonnaise as desired. Place over the burger. Repeat with remaining burgers.

    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, it's 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  -  22 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  17 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  02 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
