Want a twist on a classic?

We used to do semesterly get togethers with my dear friend Justine and we always made yummy food to share. (mostly Justine, she invited us over a lot of the time!) One time Justine made us “Aussie Burgers”, she’s from Australia by the way. And they were seriously SO GOOD. What really made them unique was the lack of a hamburger bun. She served them on buttered toast instead! Other than that they’re similar to the loaded burgers you can find at Red Robin nowa days. They are still one of our favorite fall-backs!
