Ultimate Brunch Burger

35 Minutes | easy | Serves 2

Everything for this brunch burger is cooked in the Outback BBQ cast iron skillet, which makes it really simple to cook a batch at the same time. The harissa mayonnaise adds richness and a little heat, while the green salsa adds freshness and bite – essential for contrasting all that richness from the pork patties, bacon and eggs.


  • 250g pork mince
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme, leaves picked
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, leaves picked
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • Pinch white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon harissa
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 handful chives, finely chopped
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon pickled jalapeno slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 burger or ciabatta buns
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 rashers bacon (smoked or unsmoked)
  • Oil, for cooking

Light 2 gas burners

Add more oil

Add more oil if necessary, then crack the eggs into the skillet. Allow to cook to your liking.

Add the buns

Add the buns cut down side down to the skillet, so that they toast while soaking up some of the pan juices.

Layer up the buns

Once everything is cooked, layer up the buns with some harissa mayonnaise, bacon, pork patties and eggs and top with the green salsa.

You could also add black pudding to this brunch burger for an even more filling sandwich! Or perhaps swap in a hash brown or waffle.
