Yummy burger at Airlie beach market
It was 7:30am and the weekly Saturday community market was already bustling with people. We were very hungry after a 45min walk on the Bicentennial Walkway from our caravan park to get here. There were a couple of vendors selling omelets and waffles for breakfast but decided we should look through the rest of the market in case something better came up.
The owner had a big flat grill with whole roasted potatoes and a barbecue with all his homemade smoked meats. Viv got the roasted smoked lamb and I chose the smoked ham version.
Man, this was so good! The meats were tender and juicy. On top of the meat was a veggie patty that contained the sautéed onions, carrots and herbs. He didn't use a traditional hamburger bun either. This bun was very similar to a croissant. One final touch to the burger that put it over the top was the apple sauce. Hmm I wonder if pineapple sauce with the smoked ham would be a winning combination too? The roasted potato was a good filler and the salad was mixed with light vinegrette. It was a good balance of flavour on the plate.
This would be something I'd definitely try to emulate when BBQ season rolls around back home 🙂
