The Huxtaburger Book
Chris Middleton

This is the one with the lot, and the one I like to think Dad, Cliff Huxtable, would tuck into. It’s not the tidiest burger to eat as the sauces, juices and runny yolk come from all directions! However, it is bloody delicious.


Quantity Ingredient
1 heaped teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
400g minced wagyu beef
4 slices cheddar
4 free-range eggs
8 slices kaiserfleisch
4 slices pineapple
4 Soft burger buns, cut in half
Clarified butter, melted, for brushing
Tomato ketchup
Pickles, sliced
Spicy mustard
4 Beetroot, sliced
4 large tomato slices
4 iceberg lettuce leaves, washed, dried and torn
Basic mayo


  1. Heat the oven to a low setting.
  2. Mix the salt and pepper through the beef. Weigh out the mixture into four 100 g portions and flatten them to about 1 cm thick. Lay the patties on a sheet of baking paper.
  3. Heat a flat grill plate, or a large non-stick frying pan, to a medium heat. Cook the patties for about 4 minutes on the first side, then turn them over and place a slice of cheese on each patty. Cook for a further 4 minutes, or until cooked through. Place the patties on a baking tray and keep them warm in the oven.
  4. Now cook the eggs, bacon and pineapple on the grill, or in the pan, transferring them to the oven to keep warm. (An extra non-stick frying pan would come in handy here, if you have one.) Simply fry the bacon for a few minutes on each side, until just crisp. The eggs should be cooked just until the sunny-side-up stage – about 2–3 minutes. The pineapple slices will only need a minute or so on each side.
  5. Brush the insides of the buns with clarified butter and toast lightly on the grill, then build your burgers.

Build from the bottom, in this order:

  • Bun bottom → Ketchup → Pickles → Cheese-topped patty → Mustard → Bacon → Pineapple → Tomato → Egg → Beetroot → Lettuce → Bun top, spread with mayo
