There’s nothing more Canadian than entering the great outdoors and hunting your own dinner. Moose is a delicious, lean meat endless in versatility. This recipe uses moose meat, cut with a beef to counter the leanness, and finished with a homemade jam made from foraged wild blueberries and red onions. It’s the essence of Canada between two buns.

Directions for: Moose Burger with Wild Blueberry Onion Jam

Ingredients

1 Tbsp butter

1 cup thinly sliced red onion

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp wild blueberry jam

1 lb(s) ground moose meat

½ lb(s) medium ground beef

1 ½ tsp salt

1 Tbsp vegetable oil

4 ciabatta buns

¼ cup full-fat Greek yogurt

1 cup baby arugula, lightly packed

Directions

1. Heat butter in a small pan over medium. Add in red onion and cook until soft and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add in vinegar and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in blueberry jam and simmer for 5 minutes or until mixture is thick.

2. Combine moose meat, ground beef and salt in a bowl. Divide meat into 4 portions and form patties using your hands. Pack tightly, but do not overwork meat.

3. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high. Add in oil and gently place burgers down. Cook until a golden brown crust forms, about 4 minutes per side.

4. Cut ciabatta buns in half. Smear 1 Tbsp of Greek yogurt on to the bottom of each bun. Place burger on top of yogurt. Divide onion jam among burgers. Top with arugula and close with top bun.
