Happy Canada Day Everyone!
What better way to celebrate Canada Day than with a Canadian classic, mixed with a summer BBQ favourite? We bring you our Great Canadian Poutine Burger! If we are being completely honest, this brilliant brain child came to us on a Wine Wednesday after a couple glasses of Rose, but boy oh boy are we grateful for this delicious outcome.
What’s more Canadian than poutine? What better way to celebrate Canada Day than with a BBQ? Done and Done, slam dunk, OHHH yeah! Poutine Burger baby!
The patties took us quite a while to perfect, but these vegan burgers are ‘barbecuable’! Yes, we said barbecuable. We made up a word but it was completely necessary! These burgers can go on the grill and won’t fall apart!
The secret is TVP, oat flour, bread crumbs, flax egg, and the 1 hour in the freezer. So basically, the secret is the burger! Top these patties off with some mozzarella shreds, french fries, and a big pour of gravy, and you have yourself a masterpiece!
One thing to note – if you are making these burgers ahead of time, they will keep in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. To freeze them, place a piece of parchment paper just slightly bigger than the burger in between each pattie and place in a freezer safe container or bag. When ready to make cook them directly from frozen! Hello meal prep!
Happy Canada Day friends!
And if you haven’t had enough poutine yet, why not finish off your burger with a side of classic poutine?
