Classic Aussie Works Burgers Recipe

You can’t get much more Australian than pineapple and beetroot on a hamburger, so these classic Aussie works burgers fit that bill exactly! Grill the pineapple on the barbecue along with the beef patties for the most delicious caramelised flavour ever!

My favourite works burger toppings are definitely bacon, egg, onion (grilled or red, either way is great) and lots of barbecue sauce. A works burger is not a works burger unless it drips all over your hands while you are eating it!

This will make a LOT of patties. Here are some suggestions if you have any leftover pattie mix-

  • Roll into balls and make spaghetti and meatballs (suitable for freezing)
  • Form into rissoles and serve with chips and vegetables (suitable for freezing)
  • Make extra patties for another hamburger meal (suitable for freezing)
  • Roll into balls, pan fry and serve on hotdog rolls with lots of melted cheese and tomato sauce and have meatball subs.
