Burger With The Lot


Get ready to unhinge your jaw for this monster of a hamburger



The “Burger with the Lot” is Australia’s audacious answer to the classic hamburger. This colossal sandwich takes the humble burger and elevates it to new heights (literally) with a dizzying array of toppings. Born from Australia’s barbecue culture, this burger has become a staple in fish and chip shops across the country, challenging diners with its impressive size and eclectic combination of flavors.

Phil, who recently moved back to Tasmania, Australia after 22 years in Canada, shared this Aussie dish with us. He grew up with this version of the burger and mentioned that while the patty is important, it’s the toppings that truly make it special.

To create this monster of a burger, grill your seasoned patties to your liking. In the last couple of minutes of cooking, top it with cheese. Next is lots of layering! Stack lettuce, beetroot slices, tomato, patty, grilled onion and pineapple, bacon slices, and a fried egg on your bun. Crown it all with a generous dollop of ketchup.

Tackling this burger was an experience! It’s literally half the size of my face and I felt like I needed to prep for a competition just to eat it. The combination of flavors is amazing. The grilled onion and pineapple work well together and the beetroot adds an interesting earthy sweetness. However, I’ll be honest… it’s a lot to handle. Phil wasn’t kidding when he called it the “Burger with the Lot”! It’s visually stunning, physically intimidating, and emotionally overwhelming. Despite the challenge, I kept going back for more bites. It’s crazy, messy, tasty and worth trying at least once!
