Burgers and Backyard BBQ Bashes – need we say more?
It’s backyard BBQ season in Canada, and we’re having a burger moment – big time. The burger is a staple summer party dish: perfect for the grill, get-togethers with friends and is even kid-friendly. This summer instead of heading to the frozen aisle why not take your burgers to the next level.
If you’ve never made a homemade burger, now’s the time to give it a try. A homemade burger can be made in minutes, with fresh ingredients and is completely customizable. And you can taste the difference. We have some ideas to elevate your BBQ menu and give your burgers a new life with just a few simple ingredients, like feta.
Our Feta Sliders are the perfect burger reinvention – they’re easy-to-make, have a zippy and warm flavour and are great for parties. With vegetarian and light meat options, this take on a traditional burger will impress and convert even traditional BBQ enthusiasts.
We share three options for our Feta Sliders: a ground turkey base, a lamb base and a quinoa zucchini base. To each base, we suggest adding a medley of spices and herbs including toasted fennel and cumin seeds, chili flakes, peppercorns, garlic, salt, chopped rosemary and lemon zest. And of course, feta. Adding creamy feta to a protein base ensures a soft and juicy texture throughout.
Planning a summer get-together? All three slider recipes can be prepared in advance and chilled until guests arrive.

How about some Halloumi?
Halloumi is a semi-hard cheese made from a blend of cow, goat and sheep’s milk and is seasoned with mint leaves and soaked in brine. When you fire up the grill, place ¼ inch slabs of halloumi directly on the grill for a couple of minutes, or until both sides are brown and toasted. The inside will be soft and warm and a perfect appetizer with a piece of warm bread. Offer it up on a feta slider for an extra-punch of flavour.
