Homemade version of Alfresco Whopper - Hungry Jacks

With a whopping 45.1g fat, the Hungry Jacks Alfresco Whopper is a heart stopper.  Although the combination of beef, bacon, cheese, salad, guacamole & aioli sauce sounded irresistible.

So one Saturday afternoon my partner and I found ourselves making a homemade version.  Let me just say it was so easy to make in fact it was even easier than driving through a drive thru! Oh and by the way, you still get the 'sauce dripping down your arm' like you do with all HJ burgers

Here's your shopping list:
Bread rolls
Avocado
Lettuce
Tomato
Cheese
Aioli (we like lime or carmelised onion)
Bacon rashes
Beef patties (premade from your local butcher or make your own)

Here's how to do it:
Using a griddle pan on high heat, sear your patty for about 2-3 minutes on each side. (this will give you that authentic Hungry Jacks grilled looked)  Reduce to medium heat and depending on the thickness of your patty continue to cook for another 4 minutes or so on each side.  Add bacon to the pan and cook to desired crispness.

While your patty is 'flame grilling', mash up your avocado, slice tomato & cheese and shred lettuce.  Now you're ready to build your Alfresco Whopper.

Starting on the base of the bun pile up your ingredients in the following order: patty, cheese, bacon, dollop of aioli, tomato, lettuce. Smear avocado on to the remaining half of bun and then put it avocado side down on top of lettuce. You're done!

So the next time you're thinking about getting the dreaded take-away for dinner, re think your choice.  It is much more healthier to make your own version from fresh ingredients and so much yummier!
