Sugar Shack Maple and Cheese Curd Pork Burgers
with Maple-Mustard Roasted Potatoes
All aboard the sugar shack express! This meal inspired by the Quebecois feast celebrates the magic of maple syrup. We've also borrowed flavours from another Quebecois fave, poutine. The pork burger patty is seared and then cooked in a rich gravy while squeaky cheese curds melt on top. A side of roasted potatoes tossed in a maple-mustard butter completes this francais feast. All that's left to do is say 'bon appétit' and dig in!
