Aussie Smash Burger

Cooked on a flat top grill these Aussie smash burgers take full advantage of the space with multiple fried elements.

Combining the smash burger technique to make the patty, additional toppings are cooked on the flat top grill include bacon and fried eggs. The Australian-influenced salad toppings include beetroot, also known in some places as pickled beets.
