Origins of Australian burgers with sliced beets (beetroot) is unclear, but beetroot on burgers had its heyday in the ’50s and ’60s. McDonald's even once promoted their version of a beet burger called the McOz!! Some folks like their beet pickled, most like it right out of the can! Adding pineapple adds a completely different flavor nuance!
