Try One of Three Unique Burger Recipes Inspired by Canadian Provinces

To me, summer means BBQ, and BBQ means burgers, so I spend a lot of the warmer days whipping up different burger creations.

I love varying the tasty toppings on my burgers, but one ingredient is always a must for me…Bick’s pickles! There are all kind of different ways of creating a burger success story when Bick’s is involved!

Bick’s is sharing some of its favourite unique burger recipes this year and I have to admit, they have my mouth watering! Created to celebrate the diversity of Canada, these provincially themed burgers offer something for everyone, with burgers inspired by Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia! Personally, I can’t wait to try the Muskoka Breakfast Burger and the Grouse Mountain Power Burger!

Muskoka Breakfast Burger

Bick’s also sent me a fabulous Bick’s Burger Kit so that I could create my own burger recipe. Since my home province of Saskatchewan wasn’t one of those featured in Bick’s unique burger recipes, I decided to create a special Saskatchewan burger.

Fire and Ice Bison Bannock Burger

This province is one of extremes; our weather goes from the hottest of the hot to the coldest of the cold through the year. So I used a combination of hot and cool toppings along with two traditional Saskatchewan foods, bison and bannock, to create my burger!

Bannock, a food that is incredibly popular in Saskatchewan among all residents but especially the First Nations and Metis population, is essentially a simple biscuit dough that is then either fried, baked or cooked over a fire.

I used the frying method for the bannock I made for these burgers and the crunchy outside and soft, tender inside of the bannock suited the burger perfectly. In a pinch, regular buns would work just as well too, though!

I had a blast creating my own unique burger recipe, but the simple fact is that in this house, any burger is a success as long as Bick’s is involved! Whether I’m having family over to visit and my dad’s piling up a burger with hot banana peppers and relish or my boys are having a burger feast with three different kinds of dill pickles, Bick’s just makes a good burger!

Looking for other great summer BBQ recipes? These decadent Dr. Pepper Ribs are a must-try!

  1. I would put Havarti cheese, jalapeno peppers, deep fried onions, tomato, avocado, spinach, ketchup, pickles, bacon (naturally!), and lettuce. Now that I think about it…. I want a burger right now!!

  2. Anything and Everything!!! Lettuce, tomato, pickles, aged cheddar cheese, relish, pickles and onion rings!

  3. I’d never thought of using bannock as a bun! I LOVE bannock! Sauteed mushrooms, cheese, bacon, tomatoes, and lettuce. Not unique but tasty :)
