Aussie Burgers


Grilled onions, a fried egg, and canned beet slices are key ingredients in the sky-high Aussie burger.


  • 1 small yellow onion

  • coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef chuck (80% lean)

  • 4 plain or sesame-seed buns, split

  • 4 large eggs, cooked over easy

  • Ketchup or barbecue sauce

  • Sliced canned beets

  • Lettuce leaves


  1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Cut onion into thin rings and season with salt and pepper. Grill until lightly charred and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Form ground beef into 4 patties and season with salt and pepper. Grill 4 minutes per side for medium. Transfer to bottom halves of buns. Top each burger with an egg, grilled onions, your choice of sauce, sliced beets, and lettuce.

Cook's Notes

Indoor Method: In an oiled grill pan or cast-iron skillet, cook onion over medium-high. Wipe skillet clean; cook burgers in same pan.
