A quick survey around told me that any good Aussie burger had to include caramelised onions and beetroot. Start here with a succulent beef pattie and this classic stack, then add what you like to make it your own… fried egg, pineapple, pickles or spicy mayo.
To make beef patties: place breadcrumbs in a medium bowl; pour milk over. Add beef mince, onion, parsley, eggs and garlic in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix until well combined
Divide the mixture into 4 even portions and shape each portion into a patty about 10cm in diameter and 2cm thick. Then refrigerate for 30 minutes
Heat a little ghee in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat until hot and cook the onion for 8 minutes or until softened, adding the balsamic towards the end. Remove from pan and set aside
Heat a little ghee and add the beef patties and cook for 5 minutes each side or until just cooked through. Place a slice of cheese on top of each pattie while you prepare the buns, so that it melts
Preheat grill on high. Place the burger buns, cut-side up, on an oven tray and toast under preheated grill for 1-2 minutes or until golden. Set aside.
To serve, top bottom halves of buns with lettuce, tomato, beetroot, beef patties, sauce and onion. Cover with bun tops
