This…might be awesome. From Serious Eats, the Aussie burger, a burger topped with cheese, fried egg, avocado, and roasted beets:
The author actually puts avocado on in place of BACON. Very, very few things in my world can ever be used in place of BACON. In fact, avocado might be the *only* thing you could replace bacon with in a recipe that would not incur my wrath. But I think this burger would work either way (or with both - what the hell?)
Also, personally I can take or leave an egg on top of a burger — I’ve never felt that it adds anything. So leave that off. But beets? That is a potentially brilliant topping. As the author says, “Especially counterpoint to a crispy, griddled, well-salted patty, the sweet earthiness of a roasted beet works wonderfully.”
So: burger with cheese, BACON and/or avocado, and roasted beets (on a Martin’s potato roll, which is absolutely the best bun option). Potential genius. Must make sure to buy beets at the market tomorrow morning.
