Stampede Burgers

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

Family barbecues are one of the many things I’m looking forward to this summer. Now that we are back in Ontario, we’ll finally be able to attend family get-togethers and visit loved ones that we haven’t seen or spoken to in years! My parents have a gorgeous backyard complete with a fully equipped bar, outdoor fireplace, and state-of-the-art grill for my dad, the self-proclaimed grillmaster. My parent’s backyard barbecue parties are legendary!

My mom, sister and I all enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. You can always count on a delicious variety of food on the menu at these family affairs. My mom makes her famous sirloin beef burger patties and my dad (aka the grillmaster) barbecues them to perfection. Bick’s pickles and relishes are a staple at any summer barbecue party. A good hamburger always has a pickle on it, in my opinion!

Bick’s sent me a Burger Kit for our summer backyard barbecues. It included a chef’s apron, outdoor oven mitt, a pickle fridge fork, premium grilling tools, a burger press and, of course, loads of Bick’s products! I’ll be adding to our condiment table all these fabulous Bick’s products like Baby Dills- Garlic, Sandwich Savers Extra Garlic, Baby Dills 50% Less Salt, Yum Yum Sweet Pickles, Zesty Onion Relish, and Sliced Beets. All of these products can be used to create a delicious burger.

I made Stampede Burgers inspired by the famous Calgary Stampede. They are spicy, juicy and a little messy as a good burger always is! I can’t wait to make this recipe this summer at our family barbecues. I think they’ll be a hit.

The recipe is made with four Bick’s products including Bick’s Zesty Onion Relish and Bick’s Yum Yum Sweet Pickles.

It also has Bick’s Garlic Baby Dill Pickles and Bick’s Banana Pepper Chunks.

The only part I skipped making with was the fried pickle garnish. I went to the grocery store to pick up all my ingredients to make the recipe and forgot the eggs! The next time I make the recipe I’ll be sure to add the garnish.
