Drop one of these Australian burger patties onto a hot grill & listen; you'll hear it starting to sizzle and release its delicious aromas – and the outside will soon brown and caramelise just like a proper burger should!
After a few minutes of sizzle time each side, pop it into your favourite bun (or – if you’re super hungry, why not load the bun up with two patties!) and add a layer of tomatoes, onion, sliced avo, burger relish and mayo (preferably vegan!). It goes really well with wasabi mayo or garlic aioli.

What's in them?
Many people worry that plant-based meat products are overly processed and artificial and thus should be avoided.
Obviously burgers don’t grow on trees (now wouldn’t be a popular tree though!) so clearly we do need to some work to turn the raw plant ingredients into a burger that looks and tastes like a meaty “traditional” burger. However, the processing involved isn’t so complicated and isn’t any more involved than many products you will find in your local supermarket, such as breakfast cereals and packaged cakes (have you ever looked at the list of ingredients of a supermarket cake?).
So while we took a long time and experimentation to create something as delicious as the Byron Bay Burger – if you were to visit our kitchen in Byron Bay, you’d see that to produce your delicious burgers, we’re actually using the same type of equipment that you might use in your own kitchen – just on a bigger scale!
What’s more, the Byron Bay Burger doesn’t contain any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives – but we want to be completely open about what we put into our burgers, and why it’s there. So we’ve listed all the key ingredients below so you can see exactly what you’re eating.
But why do they taste so good, we hear you ask! Well, that bit is a secret ;)
