The last time I ate a blue burger, it made for some interesting consequences. Not to be deterred, a Melbourne outlet has decided to one up everyone with a bright blue Sonic burger, titled Sonic The Egg Hogg.
The burger is courtesy of Bosozoku HQ, the Japanese burger specialists in Melbourne's South Yarra. They've done a range of absurd burgers before—the Jabba the Hutt creation is the stuff of nightmares—but their Blue Brioche Sonic creation is something else.
Based on a carved blue brioche bun, the Egg Hogg comes with a 62 degree egg yolk, a quarter pounder patty of Wagyu beef, strips of Canadian maple streaky bacon, beetroot mustard and relish, and some melted cheese because why the hell not.

The burger will be available for a limited time to commemorate the Chapel Champion Awards, a series of awards for businesses in the Chapel Street area. One of the categories is Champion Burger Joint. Some of the other burger entries include a burger where all the ingredients are steeped in 60mL of a neat spirit, and the burger served with a shot of whisky; a Game of Thrones-themed burg that's served with chocolate laced red wine and made with truffles (!); a burger that costs $140; and this monstrosity:
