Makes 2, scale as needed.

2 each Pickled dill cucumbers (sliced)
100 g Aioli
1 each Ketchup or gourmet tomato sauce (optional)

Divide the beef mince into 4 portions and roll into balls and flatten them into patties.

Step 3:

Heat the grill plate and cook patties and streaky bacon. Let the beef patties rest for a couple of minutes to let excess juices run.

Place pickles and cheese on top of the beef patties. Place the patties under the grill for around 30 seconds to allow the cheese to melt, slightly.

Step 6:

To construct the burger, take the base and the lid of the warm Milk Bun, add a good slather of aioli, ketchup on each. Add a couple of tomato slices. Finally, stack beef patties, streaky bacon and the milk bun lid on top.

If burger buns are too basic, you can always use artisan bread to add a unique twist to your burgers.

Want to jump into the vegan trend? That’s easy! Just switch from beef and bacon to Plantry’s meat-free chicken-style patties, from QBA Milk Buns to Plantry’s Gourmet Vegan Bun, and from regular cheese to a vegan-friendly cheese.

Message from chef Colin Selwood

Colin Selwood

The Double Beef and Bacon is the best burger for the travel test because there’s not too much in it that will make it go soggy. Beef really is the original burger protein and who doesn’t like bacon and cheese to go with their beef?
