Best Grilled Aussie Hamburger

While I don’t think you can define Australian Cuisine clearly, I believe Aussies do one thing brilliantly: They are masters of the BBQ. Summer parties around the BBQ are the ultimate pastime in this land. Aussies grill with grit and can sear a snag and caramelize onions like nobody’s business. Here’s the best grilled Aussie hamburger recipe that’s easy to make.

Food cooked on the grill tastes better, especially burgers. The seasoned plates give that hint of smokiness while still letting the flavour of the food shine through. So I thought I’d share my favourite grilled Aussie hamburger recipe. Cook these babies up, lather on your favourite condiments, and serve with a side of corn and salad for a winning combination.
