Reader’s Digest Top 5 Canadian Burgers

May 17, 2012 | By More

Reader’s Digest has compiled a list of their favorite Canadian gourmet burgers. They are:

Au Pied de Cochon Foie Gras Burger

Martin Picard, chef-owner of Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal, is notorious for his rich and decadent fare. His infamous Au Pied de Cochon Foie Gras Burger consists of a venison patty with maple-infused pork belly, foie gras, maple syrup, port and red wine mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, marinated onions, mature cheddar and balsamic sauce.

Ultimate Moose Burger

Chef Katie Hayes, who just opened Bonavista Social Club, on the Bonavista Peninsula, Newfoundland, offers diners the Ultimate Moose Burger: a patty served in an artisanal bun on a bed of spinach with sautéed wild mushrooms, bacon and a tart partridgeberry ketchup.

Qualicum Bay Scallop Burger

Kunal Ghose, chef/co-creator of Red Fish Blue Fish in Victoria has the Qualicum Bay Scallop Burger, combined with tangy tartar sauce and lemon-pickled onions.

Heritage Pork Burger

Connie DeSousa and John Jackson, chefs and co-owners of the Calgary restaurant CHARCUT Roast House, make a Heritage Pork Burger for sharing. Served between thick slices of buttered brioche bread, topped with arugula and a sunny-side-up fried egg, and with pickles on the side.

Deux Chevaux Burger

At Jay Souilliere’s Windsor restaurant, Motor Burger, all the burgers are named after cars. His most popular is the Deux Chevaux. Souilliere serves these Canadian beef patties in brioche buns on a mound of baby spinach with Kozlik’s Daily Dijon mustard, melted Gruyère, red onions caramelized in Maudite beer and strips of smoked bacon on top.
