Ingredients

  • 6 strips (7 oz/200 g) Sensations by Compliments Peppered Bacon, finely chopped
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • ½ cup (125 mL) finely diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground allspice
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Sensations by Compliments Spirited Mickie Sweet & Tangy Bourbon BBQ Sauce
  • 4 Canadian Chuck Beef Burgers (5 oz/150 g each)
  • 4 Sensations by Compliments Deluxe Hamburger Buns

Method

  1. Set large saucepan over medium heat. Cook bacon 5 to 8 min., until bacon is lightly browned and crisp, but not dry. Transfer bacon to plate and remove all but 2 tbsp (30 mL) bacon fat from saucepan.
  2. Stir bacon, rhubarb, onion, garlic, ginger, allspice and cinnamon into saucepan over medium heat; cook 5 min. or until vegetables are softened. Stir in BBQ sauce and bring to a simmer. Immediately reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, about 15 min. until thickened. (Cool completely before storing in refrigerator in sealed container for up to 2 weeks.)
  3. Meanwhile, arrange burgers on grill preheated to medium-high heat. Cook 5 to 6 min. per side or until cooked through. Grill buns 1 to 2 min. to lightly toast.
  4. Arrange burger patties on buns and top with 2 tbsp (30 mL) bacon jam. If desired, garnish with arugula, tomato slices and red onion. Serve with baked sweet potato wedges on the side.
Tip:
Add bacon jam to grilled cheese sandwiches, stir into mac 'n' cheese or serve as a condiment on cheese platters.
