Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  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.
