Directions for: Parmesan Sage Pork Burgers


1 lb(s) (500 g) lean ground Canadian pork

½ cup (125 mL) milk

¼ cup (50 mL) dry breadcrumbs

3 Tbsp (45 mL) Parmesan cheese, grated

3 Tbsp (45 mL) fresh sage, chopped, or 1 tablespoon (15 mL) dry crumbled sage

2 Tbsp (25 mL) garlic, minced

1 ½ tsp (7 mL) ground black pepper

1 tsp (5 mL) salt

4 Kaiser or hamburger buns


1. Combine all ingredients (except the buns) in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly with a fork. Form into 4 equally-sized burgers, about 4-inches (10 cm) wide. Cover and refrigerate if not grilling immediately.

2. Per-heat grill to medium; lightly oil grill bars with vegetable oil. Grill burgers on both sides, turning once, until completely cooked with no trace of pink, about 15-20 minutes.

3. Serve on buns with the usual burger toppings: bacon, mustard, mayo, tomatoes, onions, lettuce. Or try something a little more daring: grilled Portobello mushrooms, soft goat cheese, roasted peppers, arugula leaves or black olive tapenade.

4. Tip: All ground meat MUST be cooked to well done.
