The man responsible for bringing us the “cronut” (croissant meets doughnut) - Adriano Zumbo - strikes again. 

Meet the Pieburger. It’s a pie and a hamburger in one!

“I love a good burger, and when I was brainstorming pies, I thought, hey — burgers and pies are both perfect for eating out of your hands,” says Zumbo.

“The burger bun top popped into my head, then the pie underneath appeared…we gave it a crack, threw in all those delicious burger components and cooked it up, and it’s a winner! It’s the best bits of a pie and a burger, with all the finger-licking messy eating you get with both.”

Zumbo will grace the cover of magazine this month and editor Brodee Myers-Cooke couldn't be more stoked with the pie:

“He’s managed to get all the flavours of the traditional Aussie burger actually INSIDE the pie: from the beef, to the tomato, cheddar and caramelised onion, and even fried egg and beetroot — they’re all there, in every bite.”
