Wow, what a great month! Thankyou to all our entrants for your effort and creativity. We had 15 amazing entries with some indulgent and mind-bending combinations of flavours!
We'd like to offer congratulations to Barbara Kirszman for taking out this month's comp with her 'Mi GorenBurg' - our first ever female winner - yay! Our competition sponsor Gee had a tough job trying to decide out of all the quality entries, but here's what he had to say about the inclusion of the stoner classic 'Mi Goreng' noodles (which proved a popular choice with several entrants!):
"In my opinion, Mi Goreng is the ultimate stoner food, perfect with the egg and sriracha mayo for a bit of heat and pineapples for a bit of sweetness. Pork crackling and bacon make it that extra perfect stoner burger"
Congratulations Barbara, you win a meal for two at Mister Gee (burger, chips, drink - all x2) per week for 4 weeks and a Mister Gee hoodie, all up valued at $150! Barbara also wins a spot in our year-end cookoff - more details on that in the coming months.
In second place this month, we have Jay Krome's 'Blazed Donut'. Gee loved the inclusion of a Grumpy Donuts bun and the icky, sticky ingredients, perfect to tame the dreaded mucnhies. Congrats Jay, you've won a meal for two at Mister Gees (burger, chips, drink - all x2) valued at $30!
Finally, thankyou again to our wonderful sponsor Gee from Mister Gee Burger Truck , who produces some of the most delicious burgers in Sydney. We love you guys!

This combined two of my favourite munchie options into one glorious moment-burgers and mi goreng with a runny yolk fried egg.
From the bottom:
Mayo and sriracha
Grass fed patty
Cherry wood smoked bacon
Sweet and sour pickles
Fried egg with a runny yolk
More sriracha mayo
Sprinkling of hot and spicy pork crackling crumbs
All on a brioche bun
It was a mess to eat but it was glorious! Why haven't I done this before?? I'm a changed woman.
Heya stoned folks, here's my entry for the #fbashomeburg comp this month.
Double smashed Chuck patties, double American Cheese, torched maple bacon marshmallow spread, deep fried pickled jalapeños, supreme cheese Doritos, Migoreng Mayo. All stacked on a "Blazed" Grumpy Donut bun.
Yeah so this was weird af. The maple bacon marshmallow was delicious but way too sweet... It's an Italian meringue made with maple syrup and crispy bacon crumbs mixed through. I'll definitely be using the migoreng mayo again, that was good. It's the sauce packets and the powder seasoning from migoreng mixed with mayo, squeeze of lemon juice.
From the bottom:
Banana cooked in butter and brown sugar (and some bacon fat from the pan)
Cherry wood smoked bacon (from Aldi)
Grass fed patty
Sweet and sour pickles
A sprinkling of nobby's hot and spicy pork crackling crumbs for crunch
All in a brioche bun
I thought this could be a little much but it was delicious. The peanut butter worked really well and the bananas were a great addition (thank you Elvis for the inspiration). The pickles and sriracha cut through the richness and the patty tied everything together. I'll make this again for sure.
I had a couple chicken fillets sitting in a butter milk brine from a few nights ago when I made southern fried chicken in the deep fryer for dinner. I knew they had to be used. I had a brioche bun in the freezer. I had some cabbage and pickles to make a slaw. And some smokey melty cheese.
Unlike my former stoner self that would have been happy with cheese on toast i employed my deep fryer to get to business. I fried these 2 fillets for a few minutes or so and decided what the hell. Let's stack em high. I defy any stoner after a few warmie's to not attack this. I wasn't even ripped and i was bloody impressed with my stupid stoner brain and how it's still making stupid decisions make slightly more sense.
Some Chipotle aioli and and my own spicy flour dredge made this a fun late arvo burg.
Me and my mate have given buttermilk fried chook a go thrice now and have been consistently happy with the results. Super crispy outer with the meat juicy af.
From the ground up this big girl consisted of:
- homemade Big Mac-style sauce
- shredded ice burg lettuce
- Coles smokey cheese
- dill pickles
- more sauce
Between a toasted Coles brioche bun
Washed her down with an iced coffee and a handful of homemade chippies
I call it the Big MacDaddy. everything from a big mac and more, (crispy bacon) first bite in you know that is a big mac.
100% will be making again.

After having spent a week shooting at paper bark trees, befriending a psycho cockatoo and trying not to step on the stingrays at woolamia boat ramp, before heading back to the city we had to celebrate with a few home made burgs. Inspired by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt at serious eats.

Here is my entry for the #fbashomeburg comp.
The meatlovers pizza burg.
This month got me thinking what's everyone's favourite stoner food. Pizza was one of the first things that came to mind. Meatlovers being the best in my opinion. So I tried to make a meatlovers pizza on a burger!
Double smashed wagyu patty
BBQ smoked bacon
Spicy BBQ sauce
Stoners Revenge: Episode #420 Attack of the Cones #fbashomeburg entry for the July challenge
This burg is a homage to the resourcefulness of the stoner when stuck at home with the munchies - let me walk you through this beast:
We've got frozen meat lovers pizza slice at the bottom, double patty, double cheese, bacon, Nutri grain for crunch and because you just can't have a case of the munchies without a) cereal and b) zany flavour combinations
And to top it off a ham and cheese roll because why use regular bread, this bread has extra toppings bro!!
Possibly a little too far this time but it was pretty tasty I enjoyed the nutri grain more than I thought I would.
I want to submit this as my #homeburg entry If possible
Smoke flavour cheese
Crispy AF bacon
Home crumbed and panfried Basa fish fillet
Homemade sriracha mayo
4 leaf green mix
My Stoner Month #fbashomeburg
For me, things synonymous with stoners include munchies, pizza, fried chicken, nut butter and Pineapple Express
Evening Fatties, thought it was time to share with you my #fbashomeburg Stoner Month entry. When you think of stoner staple foods you think of Doritos, cheese, donuts, peanut butter or anything with bacon. So with these in mind, I'd like to present to you the SCROLL YOUR OWN!
Fluffy cinnamon scroll bun
Crispy maple glazed streaky bacon
Juicy beef patty
Melty American cheese
Crunchy HASH brown
Dorito encrusted fried cheese sticks
Homemade peanut butter sauce
Wow! The flavour combinations in this burg far exceeded my expectations. With the first bite you're met with the sweetness of that cloud-like cinnamon scroll and the crunchiness of those American cheese sticks and hash brown. The peanut butter sauce offered a hint of saltiness which balanced well with the sweetness of the bun and maple glazed bacon.
This thing is sure to satisfy even the most extreme cases of the munchies. Cheers!
CRUNCHIE MUNCHIES BURGER: double beef, American cheese, double crispy Capilano bacon, dark chocolate peanut butter spiders, Dorito crumbed mozzarella patty, crunchy chilli peanut butter and CAPILANO HONEY
A good portion of my life lately has been spent out on my porch smoking the medicinal buds watching the neighbourhood cats have hate sex, and I often think about the fewds so I thought there was no better time than now to show my fellow burgerinos how warped my mind actually is.
