The Extra-Juicy Moroccan Lamb Burger Worthy of An Insta-Post

Spiced lamb burgers are a delicious change from regular beef burgers, and the herbed feta topping makes these company-worthy. 

Brush up on your grilling

If you still have a wire grill cleaner, it’s time for an upgrade. After many incidents of people swallowing the bristles that become detached from the brushes and stuck to food, surgeons urged people to throw them out and Health Canada launched a risk assessment. Fortunately, there are safe alternatives.

  1. Use a cedar scraper to remove charred food from the grates.
  2.  Ball up aluminum foil and use it to scrub the still-warm grates, using heat-proof gloves to protect your hands.
  3. Slice an onion in half, stick a grilling fork in the round side and rub the cut side over the hot grates.
