Makes 2 burgers

  • 300g beef mince
  • 1 onion
  • mixed lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato
  • 4 slices cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 bacon rashers
  • tinned, sliced pineapple
  • sliced, pickled beetroot
  • your choice of sauces
  • salt, pepper & dry mixed herbs
  • garlic powder


  1. Slice the onion in half and slice each half into thin pieces and put aside.
  2. In a bowl put the minced beef, 1 teaspoon mixed herbs, half a teaspoon garlic powder and some salt and pepper and combine. Test the taste by quickly microwaving or pan-frying a small amount of the mince. Adjust seasoning as needed.
  3. Form the beef into even patties about 2cm thick and set aside.
  4. Start cooking off the onions. Oil a hot pan and add the onions. Add a tablespoon of butter and cook until golden in colour. Drain on a piece of paper towel to remove excess oil.
  5. While onions are cooking, put bacon rashers onto tray and into the oven at gas mark 6/200ºc/390ºF.
  6. Once the onions have finished cooking, use the pan to start the burger patties. Cook the burgers evenly on each side for a couple of minutes.
  7. Check the bacon and flip. Add the burger patties to the tray and top with cheese. Put the tray back into the oven for 5-7 minutes.
  8. Fry the eggs, seasoning them with salt and pepper.
  9. Slice the tomato, prepare the lettuce and open the tinned pineapple and pickled beetroot. Slice the burger buns in half and butter both sides if desired.
  10. Remove burgers and bacon from the oven. Start building your burgers in whatever order you prefer!
  11. Serve with some sort of napkin – it gets messy!
