Move beyond the ketchup-mustard-relish trio this grilling season with these spicy new burger condiment ideas.
On autopilot when prepping your patty? Wake up! A word of spicy flavour awaits you with these cool Canadian condiment choices, infused with the tastes of tomato pesto, pepper, dijon, bacon, and more.
1. Wild Blueberry Pepper Spread
Wild Blueberry Pepper Spread from Galloping Cows of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, features the triple kick of fiery habaneros, jalapenos and sweet red peppers.
2. Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
A balm for the gardenless, Quebec-based Maison Le Grand‘s Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto is packed with the vibrant flavours of tomatoes, fresh garlic and Romano cheese.
3. Double C Dijon
Kozlik‘s has been in the mustard business for over 60 years, so the Toronto company’s popular Double C Dijon has time on its side. Made with both cracked and ground Canadian-grown mustard seed for double the crunch, a little dab goes a long way.
4. Bacon Marmalade Spread
Behold PC Black Label Bacon Marmalade Spread, the Loblaws twist on this season’s hottest condiment (it’s bacon jam, people). Savoury bacon meets its perfect match in sweet sautéed onions, tangy vinegar and subtle spices.
5. Rosemary Balsamic Reduction
Produced in Whistler, B.C., with balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy, Nonna Pia‘s infusedRosemary Balsamic Reduction is a thick and velvety-rich treat.
6. Aged Cheddar and Chipotle Dip
While not technically a condiment, the Aged Cheddar and Chipotle Dip from Summer Fresh of Woodbridge, Ontario, makes a terrific topper – the smoky heat of chipotle peppers balances creamy cheddar sharpness.
