The Aussie Burger

So let's just put aside the fact it is the New Year, that we have the (oh so popular) resolution to exercise more and eat healthier.

We were invited over to an Aussie friend's house for a BBQ, about six months ago (and yes, we've been invited over again since then). Hubs has not stopped talking about the burger.

We decided to do our best to recreate it. Following is a recipe he found (and I must say, it is rather massive and oh so delicious). Worth the work (and weight) in gold.

Hubs commented upon completion that it was a "light meal." And he didn't feel "overly full."

I give it two snaps in a circle.

Toasted Roll
Cheese (cheddar)
Fried Egg (in bacon grease)
Fried Onion (intact slice in bacon grease)
Grilled Pineapple (or you can fry it in bacon grease)
Beetroot from a can (Yes, cold beets)
Cole Slaw (see spicy slaw below)
Tomato Sauce (otherwise known as ketchup)

spicy slaw recipe

1 cup may (use way less)
1 tablespoon hot sauce (use more)
juice of one lime
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1/2 small cabbage (red or green) - the one we had next door used carrots
