Method


Cook bacon, mushrooms, red onion and burger patties on sizzler pan (cook the meat separately to the veg). Drizzle a little oil over the mushrooms and onion.

Burgers – 4-5 minutes, rotated half way
Bacon – 3-4 minutes, rotated half way
Mushrooms & red onion, 2 minutes

Once burgers have finished cooking, add cheese and leave on sizzler to melt or finish off in Uuni.

Load all toppings onto the buns – easy!

Even though Ostrich meat tastes like beef, the Ostrich does not have fat marbling in the meat like beef. Ostriches have fat, but it collects outside the muscles and is easily removed during processing.

It is often said to be the healthiest red meat available. Therefore, the cuts of meat are very lean with very low fat content.

It allows meat lovers to enjoy the occasional burger without the fat and cholesterol found in other fast food burgers.
