Made with ground chicken, crispy bacon, potatoes and onions, these burgers are a tasty twist on the traditional Rappie Pie, an Acadian dish. Serve on a bun, topped with bacon sour cream and fresh chives.
Grilling Time: 10 minutes
- 6 strips thick cut Ontario Bacon
- 1 cup (250 mL) grated Ontario Red Potato
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped Ontario Onion
- 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
- 1 lb (500 g) extra-lean Ontario Ground Chicken
- 1 Ontario Egg
- 3/4 cup (175 mL) low fat Ontario Sour Cream
- 6 burger buns, toasted
- 1/3 cup (75 mL) chopped, fresh Ontario Chives
In large nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towel-lined plate. Dice 4 strips and crumble remaining 2 strips; set aside. In remaining fat, cook potato, onion, salt and pepper until potato is tender, about 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Set aside.
In medium bowl, mix together chicken, diced bacon, potato mixture and egg until well combined. Divide mixture into 6 equal-sized balls and shape into 1/2-inch
(1 cm) thick burgers. Place burgers on greased grill over medium-high heat. Grill, covered, 5 minutes on each side, until thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each burger reads 165°F (74°C).
In small bowl, combine sour cream and crumbled bacon. Assemble burger on bun, top with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the bacon sour cream and sprinkle with chives.
