There is no doubt that the burger is a crowd pleaser and go-to for many Canadians while on the deck or the dock. When it’s hot outside, your burgers will sizzle with taste with these top tips from chefs at Bick’s.
Sizzling and Swift: It’s best to apply high and direct heat to your burger and cook it as fast as possible. Leave the lid open and crank up the heat to ensure optimal cooking. Remember not to squish the patty while on the grill or you’ll lose all the flavourful juices sizzling inside. Use a thermometer to check doneness with accuracy.
Switch up the beef: Go for a new protein to switch up the taste. Try chicken or savoury vegetable patties. Your options are endless at bicks.ca, where you can also create your own taste adventure by finding lost burgers, and reuniting them with a crunchy pickle. From a seaworthy burger to burgers inspired by mountains, forests and deserts, you’ll be tempted to try every one. If beef is your go-to ingredient, try integrating new spices, such as cumin with dried thyme and oregano to ramp up burger flavour.
Load up on pickles: Pile on the toppings, but never forget the pickle. Bick’s offers tons of pickle varieties to get creative. From the sweet heat of Bick’s Sandwich Savers Hot and Spicy Pickles to baby dill pickles, Bick’s has the secret pickle ingredient to take your burger from good to great. Try balancing the heat with sweet by combining green relish with hot pepper rings or try other Bick’s pickled condiments such as the zesty wine sauerkraut and beets.
Use the right tools: A stainless-steel spatula and thermometer are key to making the perfect burger. For more information on how to enhance your grilling experience and for more delicious summer grilling recipes visit bicks.ca.
