1. Preheat a flat grill or barbecue over high heat.

2. Prepare the ingredients: Wash all the vegetables. Peel then cut the potatoes into 2cm thick slices, then into 2cm thick chips. Wash to remove the starch and dry well. Thinly slice the lettuce. Slice the tomatoes into thin rounds. Slice half of the onions into thin rounds. Finely chop the remaining onions into a small dice. Peel and cut the pineapple into thin slices. Slice the cheddar cheese. Halve the buns.

3. Make the relish: Place half of the diced onions and half of the tomatoes onto a flat grill, barbecue or in a frying pan over high heat and cook for 5 minutes. Sprinkle a little sugar over the vegetables (approximately ½ a teaspoon per person). Cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the vegetables are softened. Remove from the heat.

4. Cook the bacon, buns and eggs: Reduce the flat grill, barbecue or frying pan to medium heat and cook the bacon for 10 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Remove from the heat and onto absorbent paper. Toast the buns cut side down on the flat grill, barbecue or frying pan for 2 minutes or until toasted lightly. Add a little oil to the flat grill or frying pan and crack the eggs in. Cook for 2 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

5. Make the chips: Heat a generous splash of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chips, turning often, for 8 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Drain the chips on absorbent paper. Season with salt.

6. Cook the burger: Meanwhile, divide the beef mince into individual serves. Place the burger onto the flat grill, barbecue or frying pan over high heat. Press to flatten using a spatula or small saucepan lid. Sprinkle with some salt. Cook for 2 minutes then add the remaining diced onions on top of the burger before turning over. Place the cheese on top of the burger to melt and cook for a further 2 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

7. To serve: Divide the buns between the serving plates. Spread the beetroot relish over the buns and top with the pineapple, lettuce, tomatoes,  burger patty, cheese, bacon,  tomato relish, onion rounds and an egg. Serve with the chips.
