The classic hamburger is a staple. Lean protein, tasty, tangy toppings and a fluffy bun (not to mention a side of crispy fries!) is a meal a lot of us crave.
While it’s easy enough to make your own burger patties with ground beef, butcher shop-made chuck burger patties are a way to speed your meal prep—or to serve the whole family easily.
Co-op’s store-made chuck burger patties are made with freshly-ground meat like chuck that is a little higher in fat. This fat content keeps the burger moist whether you choose to grill it on the barbecue or sear it in a pan on the stovetop.
Co-op butcher-made chuck burger patties have a completely different flavour from most ready-made and frozen burger patties. The freshly ground meat, and signature meat blend make for a fresher tasting patty, and the careful blending and pressing technique ensures the patty stays together without becoming tough after cooking.
Much like a fine steak, you can add a couple of things to your burger to really give it that steakhouse touch; think caramelized onions, a crumble of blue cheese, or a smear of tangy, creamy goat cheese.
We’ll start you out with our always popular Classic Cheeseburger recipe. Take things up a notch with these Montreal Steak Spice Burgers with Caramelized Onions & Goat Cheese. Want something just for the kids, or a burger that can be easily served as a gluten-free meal? Meet the Pizza Smashburger! Of course you can also serve our chuck burger patties on their own, with a side of salad as a light and easy lunch or evening meal.
Cheeseburger Wedge Salad
4 lean ground chuck patties
salt and pepper, to taste
1 head iceberg lettuce
1/2 cup grated aged cheddar or crumbled blue cheese
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
ranch, green goddess or blue cheese dressing, to taste
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, cook the burger patties, sprinkling with salt and pepper, for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. (Cover the pan with a lid or foil to help cook them through.)
Cut the head of lettuce into thick wedges and top with a burger patty, grated cheddar and tomatoes, drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with bacon.
Shrimp is a surprisingly versatile, hearty and healthy seafood option that can add a lot to a meal.
