Some things are sacred. The Australian hamburger is one of them. There is nothing wrong with other sorts of burgers, there are lots here at aussiebarbie.com.au, but none pretend to be the real thing. You're genuine article hamburger is ideally made in a Greek milk bar. It should be on a white, daggy toasted bun. There should be meat, fried onions, tomato, shredded lettuce, tomato or barbecue sauce, iodised salt, no pepper and of course, canned beetroot. You can't beat a root. Boom, tish! You can't have a cheeseburger without cheese, so it has to be OK. Canned pineapple is frowned upon, but is an allowable extra if only for nostalgic reasons. Bacon and fried egg are permissible to make a 'with the lot', but best to stop at the beetroot.
