I grew up with these burgers either home made or from the milk bar with some potato scallops on the side. The pickled beets are a must. Do make sure they are sweet pickled. I have a feeling some accidentally use the unsweetened which would be gross. Also nice chunky fries. I'm going to have to make one soon again. It does turn into a knife and fork deal but that's part of the goodness. I loved these in Sydney.
A Great burger..though I omitted the beet, and made 4 of them. Definately needed the napkins, and a knife,but well worth it. Made for a nice Jumbo burger. Kids enjoyed too. Using egg on a burger was a nice change, I usually dont. Made and reviewed for Rookie Tag.
Great Aussie burger. My family really enjoy a good works burger. I made the meat patty with egg, salt and pepper and a little flour. Didn't use the margarine/butter but otherwise made as written. Wouldn't change a thing. Reviewed for the May 2013 recipe swap in the Aus/NZ Forum. Photos posted
You nailed this on! it is the perfect Aussie burger! I used Bar-b-que sauce instead of tomato, that more common here. Queenslanders put grated carrot on their burger, (YUK)
A "works" burger is often presented as an "open " burger, and is eaten with a knife and fork, saves on dry-cleaning :)
made for Aussie swap sept 2012
