Home-made burgers are a fantastic way to entertain on a lazy Sunday, especially after a large Saturday night. Your guests can assemble their own burger which makes it fun… and kinda messy. Not the ideal way to spend a first-date, and make sure you have some serviettes handy…

1. Peel the potatoes and cut into chunky chips (as seen in the picture) put them into the oven for about an hour on 180.
2. Make the mince patties by combining the mince, parsley, diced onion, bread crumbs, an egg and garlic in a bowl.
3. Cut the fresh pineapple into horizontal slices, and arrange on a serving plate with sliced tomato, lettuce, grated cheese,
4. Cut the homemade beetroot into slices (I preserve beetroot by baking half a dozen beetroots wrapped in Al Foil for 1 hour, unwrapping them in cold water to take the skin off and slicing them. You can preserve them by adding a tea-spoon of sugar and covering the beetroot with vinegar.) You can also use tinned beetroot.
5. Fire up the BBQ and cook the onions, bacon and mince patties. If you feel really gourmet you can melt some of the cheese on top of the patties.
6. When the meat is almost cooked, cook the eggs on the BBQ and put the bread rolls into the oven to warm them.
7. Serve alongside (homemade) chutney, tomato or BBQ sauce, and let your guests enjoy assembling the biggest burgers ever.
8. Hangover cured.

  • Nice looking burgers. I personally prefer using kangaroo patties that you can buy from Coles. They are delicious!
