Happy Canada Day! The Canadian Pork Burger and info on the July Diner News

Today, July 1st,  is Canada Day! Hope my neighbors to the north are having a wonderful holiday. When I was at the teachers' conference last week, I listened to a very interesting speaker sharing the differences between the US and Canada. We share a lot, but many things are different. In honor of the day, I offer my version of a Canada Burger. Yum. Ground pork filled with cheese and topped with an amazing maple glaze. I tried it out on the boys and they loved it, even though we are pretty darn southern.

This July, the Diner News has all sorts of recipes featuring ground meats. I have to admit, I really on ground beef, chicken and turkey for some of our favorite meals. Ground meats are easy to cook and versatile. This issue of the news is loaded with new recipes. Lots of variety in there! Order it here. The Kung Pao Chicken Meatballs are spot on in flavor. The Firecracker Chicken Meatballs will be the hit of the party. I also put some burger making secrets in there. You will just have to order the July issue to find out more.

Canadian Pork Burgers
My son loved these, and he is a burger specialist!

1 lb ground pork
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 egg
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp prepared mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp maple flavoring
1/4 tsp pepper
Sauce:  Mix 2 tbsp mustard, 2 tbsp sugarfree pancake syrup, and 1 tsp cider vinegar

Combine pork, cheese, egg, coconut flour, chia seeds, garlic, salt, sage and pepper. Form mixture into patties and place on and outdoor grill or contact grill. After grilling ten minutes, brush with sauce. Remove from grill when internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  Brush another layer of sauce over the top of the burger. Excellent with coleslaw.
