Bick’s Burgers

This summer, Bick's is motivating us to create our own signature burger creations by providing some refreshing pickles. Over here in our tiny kitchen, we probably whip up burgers at least once every other week because it's such an easy meal to prepare.
First, we season the ground beef with simple salt and pepper.
Then, we form the ground beef into loose balls. You don't want to apply too much pressure and pack it too tightly. That'll give off a meatloaf consistency!
We grease our cast iron skillet and set the temperature on medium high. When it's really hot, we drop the beef balls and press down to form the patties.
You let it sizzle and cook, then flip it.
Add some delicious mozzarella cheese and let it melt. The burger should be ready by the time the cheese starts to ooze.
Time it so that the burger buns are toasting when the burger is being cooked. So when everything is ready, you can start dressing the burger. We prefer a layer of iceberg lettuce over the burger, then two slices of Bick’s Sandwich Savers Tangy Dill Pickles.
Lots of Bick’s Hot Banana Pepper Chunks cut into slices please!
Looking delicious and colourful, but just a few more staples for our burgers . . .
. . . ketchup and mustard!
Voila! An easy weekend burger at our home is ready in under half an hour. We pair it with a side salad from the excess iceberg lettuce.

The pickles and banana peppers give the burger a nice and snappy tang, and add a subtle punch of heat (don't worry, they're not spicy to the point where your eyes water).

As a bonus, Bick's is running their Name a Burger Success Story promotion. Just by naming a burger, you can enter for a chance to win 1 of 4 cottage vacations (awarded as a cheque) where you’ll be able to create your own burger success stories! Please visit Bicks.ca for the Official Rules and complete details.

If you don't want to make burgers all the time, Bick's has recipe suggestions and other meal ideas on their website as well. But we think pickles and banana peppers pair so well with burgers, I currently have my eye on the Muskoka breakfast burger for another weekend. Sunny side up egg and bacon? Yes, please!
