Heritage Pork Burger

Chefs Connie DeSousa and John Jackson of Calgary’s CHARCUT Roast House share their famous Heritage Pork Burger recipe. Served between thick slices of buttered brioche bread and an optional sunny-side-up fried egg, it’s a new way to eat family-style.

2 lbs ground pork
2 cups cheese curds
1 tbsp dry white wine
2 tsp salt
2 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
1/4 tsp ground mace
1 pinch ground allspice
2 bulbs roasted garlic

In large bowl, add all spices to chilled ground pork; add roasted garlic. Use mixer at low speed for 3 minutes or mix by hand for 6 minutes, slowly drizzling in wine as you go, then form large patty and wrap. Chill 1 hour in fridge.
Grill burger over medium-high heat until a thermometer inserted into centre reads just under 155°F (65°C), approximately 6 minutes per side, then top with cheese curds and finish by broiling in oven or closing the lid on the grill until the cheese curds melt slightly.
Recipe Notes
Optional: Top your burger with a fried sunny-side up egg for maximum deliciousness.
