The bacon burger

The bacon burger

I love making burgers. If I have some time on my hands, I like to make a whole lot of burger patties and freeze them for when I need them.

Sometimes I am just lazy and buy the store bought patties and fry them and pretend I made them from scratch.

I came across this recipe in a Woolworths magazine and I just had to try it out. Of course my dad wasn’t too happy when I announced that we would be having a burger week where all we would be having to eat from breakfast, lunch and supper would be burgers.

Towards the end of the week he was grumbling he wanted curry, the rolls was making him bloated and he was starting to look like a hamburger roll himself.

I am not a fan of sweet potatoe chips , but because the recipe said to serve it with the burgers, I decided to try them out and I loved them.


  • 4 x beef burger patties.
  • 1 x red onion, sliced.
  • Plum basting sauce.

  • Fry the bacon till crispy and pour over the maple syrup and fry till it is all nice and sticky.
  • Assemble the burger between the two burger buns and add all the trimmings as well as a serving of potatoe chips.
