Sweet Bacon Jam & Corn Relish Burgers

All the flavors of a Midwest Summer in a burger!
These Sweet Bacon Jam & Corn Relish Burgers are a hot ticket item for Summer grilling.

This post is sponsored by the Iowa Beef Council.

Sweet Bacon Jam & Corn Relish Burgers

May is National Burger Month and it is the perfect month for it! We are kicking off the Summer grilling season today with this Midwest inspired burger. Everything that screams the heartland can be found in this delicious burger.

With three kids and a hungry husband burgers are served a lot at our house during the warm weather months. They are easy to put together and throw on the grill for quick dinners. There are 101 million burger recipes out there {here are a list of some great ones}, but honestly this one that the Iowa Beef Council and I dreamed up is TOP NOTCH.

You guys, it's really special.

Sweet Bacon Jam & Corn Relish Burgers

When you think Iowa you think beef, corn and bacon. We have a lot of all three! Originally we even toyed with calling these Iowa Burgers as they are just filled to the brim with ingredients found out our back door.

But after we took a deeper dive into the TASTY toppings, we both knew we had to give them a descriptive and mouthwatering title.

Grilling burgers are easy, but there are a few tips that will make them GREAT.

First, use a gentle touch with ground beef. Overmixing them will result in a "too firm" texture, instead of soft and tender. Second, use a spatula when flipping on the grill and never press down on them - you'll lose all their juice! And third, ground beef should be cooked to 160 degrees. Using an internal thermometer will help to determine if they are done. Generally, for a normal-sized burger, 10 minutes a side is perfect.

If you follow these easy rules you'll be set!

Wanna chat toppings?

BACON JAM. It's a beauty of a burger topping. It's a sweet combo of onion, salt, bacon, brown sugar and vinegar. It cooks low and slow {don't rush it} and in the end is both sweet and savory with the consistency of a rough jam.

CORN RELISH. Another beautiful burger topping. Yes, corn on a burger is a thing! Unlike the jam, this relish comes together in just a few minutes. Corn, tomato, feta cheese, vinegar and seasonings. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

Put these two beauties together and they compliment each other greatly.

I mean, just look at these burgers. If you bring a platter of them to the table your crowd will be all smiles. One bite in and they'll be sold.

Both toppings will make extra - the bacon jam and the corn relish - and both keep well in the fridge after. The bacon jam will stay in the fridge for up to 4 weeks and the corn relish for 2-3 days. Top the extras on sandwiches, leftover burgers or salads.

The Iowa Beef Council just recently announced Iowa's Best Burger.  The contest was held across the state and over many weeks and the tallying of many, many votes they narrowed it down to ten restaurants {one being in the town where I live!}.

The big winner was Bambino's in Ossian, Iowa. Take a peek at their burger HERE

It's such a fun contest that finds hidden gems along back roads and mainstay travels. Some people even travel the trail and check out them all!

I cannot wait to see you make these burgers!

They are a big bite of the Midwest - full of delicious Iowa beef, bacon, corn and more. Putting all of that together was one of my best ideas to date. My whole family worshipped them. 

When you grill them up be sure to snap a photo and share them with us! Tag us at {@sweetsavoryeats and @iowabeefcouncil} and we will share the love.

All the flavors of a Midwest burger in this one! This perfectly grilled burger is topped with a sweetened bacon jam and a fresh Summer corn relish. Mouthwatering in every bite.

Ingredients

For the Sweet Bacon Jam
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 1/2 lb bacon, chopped in small pieces
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 T. rice wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. Heat a rimmed skillet to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Dice the onions and add them and the salt to the warm pan. Start to saute letting them get translucent about 10 minutes.
  3. After they are cooked, add in the chopped bacon and continue to cook until the bacon is just slightly crispy, usually another 10 minutes.
  4. Once the onions and bacon are cooked add in the remaining ingredients - rice wine vinegar, brown sugar and water. Bring this up to a boil. Once boiling, then bring back down to a simmer. Continue to stir the bacon jam until it reduces down and looks a bit syrupy. If looking dry, feel free to add additional water or brown sugar. This can take up to another 30 minutes to reduce.
  5. Set aside or keep on warm until the burgers are ready. Leftover jam can stay in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
For the Corn Relish
  1. 1 cup frozen or fresh corn
  2. 1 tomato, finely chopped
  3. 1/2 cup feta cheese
  4. 1 T rice wine vinegar
  5. 1/4 t garlic salt
  6. 1/2 t salt
  7. 1/2 t pepper
  1. In a bowl combine all of the corn relish ingredients and stir. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. This relish will stay fresh for 2-3 days in the fridge.
For the Burgers
  1. 1 lb ground beef
  2. 3 T worcestershire sauce
  3. 1/8 cup steak sauce (A-1 or Heinz 57 works well)
  1. In a bowl gently combine the ground beef, worcestershire sauce and steak sauce. Form into four patties, place them on a plate and place them in the freezer for 1 hour to firm up before grilling.
  2. About 15 minutes before grilling remove them from the freezer and set out at room temperature.
  3. Heat your grill to medium/high heat (around 400 degrees). Place the burgers on the grill and cook for 10 minutes. Flip the burgers, top with some of the bacon jam and cook an additional 10 minutes on the other side.
  4. Remove the burgers from the grill. Immediately place on a bun and top with the fresh corn relish.
  5. Feel free to add any additional condiments or toppings you enjoy on your burger. Serve warm.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Today is the second installment in a 3-month series on grocery store favorites!
Costco is a family favorite and here our my favorite finds.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Being a family of five, with three kids who eat ALL THE TIME, we have resorted to being that family who "buys in bulk". Or maybe I should say that family who "makes big grocery hauls". Either way my kids eat a lot, I'm cooking a lot and sometimes our monthly grocery hauls look like other people's mortgage payments.

God bless us.

When the husband and I were first married we had a Costco membership, more because it was literally down the street from where we lived and it was kinda fun. Stroll the aisles for a few samples and find something fun to buy? Sure!

Nowadays, it's more out of necessity and feeding our growing family.

This month my three Iowa blogging friends - Stacy, Hilary and Sarah are sharing why we love Costco! If you missed my post last month on ALDI you can read that HERE.

On my last Costco trip I snapped photos of our favorites, along with the items I regularly buy. Some items are fun, some are special treats and some we buy every single time because they feed our family on the regular. 

So let's get started! Here are my current Costco favorites {as of May 2021}.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Sparkling Water
I don't drink pop/soda and we rarely have it in the house, but I do love a good, bubbly sparkling water. It gives that same refreshing, carbonated feel without all the sugar or calories. I will say it does take some getting used {a few years back I wouldn't have touched it}, but it grew on me! Now I love it. This Waterloo brand is awesome, as is Costco's Kirkland brand. Try making my favorite Summer cocktail - sparkling water, vodka and fresh limes. So refreshing!

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

S'mores Bark
Tis the season for s'mores! This s'mores bark is most definitely an indulgent treat, but oh my goodness are these good. Graham crackers and marshmallows cut up into a milk chocolate bark - there are not too many desserts better than that! Tip: keep this bag in the freezer and you'll love me forever. 

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Individual Guacamole Cups
We love guacamole at our house, but sometimes we can't use up those avocados fast enough. These little cups solve that problem! We use them at lunches when we want to add some guac to our sandwiches or to dip with veggies. Then on bigger nights when tacos are being served we grab a few for the whole family. These packets also freeze well!

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Pork Sausage Links
Breakfasts in our house are a big time event and breakfasts for dinner are even bigger. About every two weeks, when groceries are getting low I either whip up this breakfast casserole or a batch of pancakes and these frozen pork sausage links make an appearance. They are so tasty! One bag will last your family a very long time.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Rao's Homemade Marinara
I've often said I could bathe in a bath of marinara. I just love it so much. Multiple jars can always be found in my pantry. We use it on simple spaghetti, as the base for homemade pizza or in my million dollar casserole. This version is the MOST authentic tasting.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Frozen Chicken & Cheese Taquitos
Before you begin thinking all things are homemade and made from scratch in our house, think again. I do buy convenience foods! Our oldest boy LOVES these in the air fryer. And I will say myself they are good! When we get home late from sports, he'll often throw a few in to cure those late hunger cravings. We like to dip these in fresh salsa.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Collagen Peptides
So here's the thing - I'm turning 40 this year. Eeeeeeek! With that has come thinning hair and sore joints at times. This brand of collagen powder is the best - in both price and taste {meaning it's unflavored so you can't taste it}. I put a scoop either in my morning coffee or midday drink. It's also great in smoothies and baked goods, even your morning oatmeal!

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Grillo's Pickles
We love dill pickles! This brand is just the best in crisp, dill pickle flavor. This big tub usually lasts us a long time in the fridge. I love them on burgers, cold meat sandwiches, my famous crockpot maid-rites and just to eat alongside some cheese and crackers.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Almond Flour Crackers
I first ate these crackers at a friend's house a few years back and I've been buying them every since! They have a faint garlic taste, yet are light and crispy. If you are gluten free, here is a good cracker for you - I'm not but I still love their taste. One box contains two big bags of crackers, so you'll be stocked for awhile.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Butter Cinnamon Sugar Loaves
Anytime I walk by the bakery and see this huge, 3-pack of quick bread I grab a container. I cannot help myself. It's like a cross between a delicious buttery pound cake and a cinnamon and sugar donut. What's not to love! Usually I'll put a loaf in the freezer and then we'll graze on the other two loaves throughout the week. Definitely indulgent, most definitely good.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Bitchin' Chipotle Sauce
The husband's favorite dip! Oh my goodness, this stuff is good {and organic and made of almonds, just so you know}. It's like a spicy mayo, but much healthier. We love to dip veggies and chips in it. It's also especially good on grilled chicken, burgers or as a topper on a cold meat sandwich. So yummy! Last time I bought two tubs and they were gone quickly.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Brownberry Oatnut Bread
This is one of my favorite store bought sandwich breads. You can get two big loaves for just $4! It's nutty and hearty and makes the best toast. It is one of those breads that just holds up well. I can make a slew of peanut butter & jelly sandwiches the night before ballgames, stick them in the fridge and still 12 hours later they aren't even close to soggy.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Kirkland Parmesan Cheese
If I had to pick a best friend it just might be parmesan cheese. I love it so much. We also use it in a lot of things! It is always on the table for pasta night, I sprinkle it in every casserole I make and it's a main staple in my homemade garlic alfredo sauce. I love it's nutty and sharp flavor. This tub will last your family a long time.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Frozen Wild Blueberries
Ever had a wild blueberry? They are little, but pack a punch in flavor. Blueberries are a fruit everyone in our house loves. We eat a lot of them fresh - but you better believe a lot of these also go in my Blueberry Muffin Loaf and my Triple Berry Sour Cream Muffins.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Bacon Crumbles
I love bacon, but I don't always enjoy cooking it. I keep this big {huge} bag of fresh bacon pieces in our freezer. Then when I need some for a dish all I do is grab a handful with no mess required. It was and is the greatest invention.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Kirkland Vodka
Remember that Summer drink I referred to above? Sparkling water, vodka, fresh limes - that's it! We purchase our vodka at Costco because it is so cheap. Just $13.99 for a huge bottle. I also use it in my Sausage Penne Alla Vodka dish, which is so, so good.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Chia Seeds
Want to be stocked up on chia seeds for the rest of your life? This bag will do that for you. Chia seeds will deliver a mass amount of nutrients with very few calories. I have so many recipes that use them - my Cherry Chia Crock Pot Jam is a big favorite. I'll also sprinkle them on peanut butter toast, over oatmeal or put them in smoothies.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

White Queso
I happened upon this little gem last year - a tub of queso! Golly, it's so good. Not spicy, just cheesy and smooth. We love it as a dipper with tortilla chips {of course}, drizzled over a plate of sheet pan nachos, on tacos and swirled with some of my blender salsa for a fun dip. A tub will last you awhile, unless you buy it for a party! Then it might be gone by nightfall.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Unreal Dark Chocolate Coconut Minis
One of my favorite candy bars is an Almond Joy. Unfortunately, they aren't that good for ya! When I happened across these one day I grabbed a bag hoping they'd cure that sweet craving. And boy, did they ever. A much, much healthier version of that Almond Joy I craved. If you love coconut and dark chocolate you'll love these.

Costco Favorites: What I Love, What I Buy

Did you find a new product you want to try? Curious about getting a Costco membership? Take a look at THIS POST I wrote back in 2019 about why we got a membership after not having one for 10 years. A few of the reasons might surprise you.

Let me know what you love at Costco! I'm sure I'm missing some great items I have yet to come across.

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

Summer barbecues are in full swing and that means burger season!
These Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers are full of flavor.

This post is sponsored by Cookies Sauces & Seasonings.

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

Burgers on the grill are one of my all time favorite foods. When I was little it was all that I would order off a menu at a restaurant. I never got tired of them! And with an August birthday it is always my birthday meal of choice {paired along side baked beans and potato salad}.

I just love them to death.

All kinds. If it's sandwiched between a buttery bun I'm game. Any meat, any toppings, any add-ins - I'm not too picky!

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

Summer is the season for everything barbecue {including burgers!}. When my favorite barbecue sauce company, Cookies Sauces & Seasonings, asked to partner on a barbecue recipe for this month, I immediately had a great idea for a chicken burger.

Yes, a chicken burger!

Plus the month of May is National Burger Month - so it fit perfectly together. This is the month where we celebrate the kick-off of season of barbecue! I wanted this chicken burger to have a bit of spice, be juicy and full of flavor and have a sweet & spicy sauce slathered on top to bring it all together.

It worked friends, it really worked.

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

Cookies BBQ is an Iowa company - did you know that? 

In what started as humble beginnings it has now grown to be home to some of America's most loved sauces and seasonings. Typically called "The BBQ Sauce America Loves to Eat" this company has grown so much over it's 40+ years in business.

Our family has been enjoying their products for years! What started as just barbecue sauces has now grown to wing sauces, seasonings, salsa and even stir fry sauce.

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

I wanted this chicken burger to POP! To honestly be the best chicken burger you've ever had. Assuming you've had a chicken burger, right?

Using ground chicken in this recipe {by simply pulsing/grinding chicken breasts in your food processor} and loading it with flavorful ingredients makes the most juicy burger. To give it a fun spicy barbecue flavor I added minced onion, a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce {can see what that is here}, Cookies Original barbecue sauce + Cookies Flavor Enhancer, the juice of a lime and some garlic salt.

Talk about a mouthful, right?

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

If you want a burger you want flavor! Most important, if you are making a chicken burger you NEED flavor!

In addition to the burger itself, I also feel that every good grilled burger needs a "sauce". Something to top it with to give it that extra flavor boost. So I combined mayo, some of that spicy chipotle pepper in adobo sauce {from the can} and some Cookies Original barbecue sauce.

It's like a spicy bbq mayo!

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

I mean, look at that delicious burger!

Saucy and flavorful and filled to the brim with barbecue goodness. My whole family FLIPPED for these. Every single family member.

Which is always a good sign. Trying to please all five of us at dinner can often be a challenge. But let's be honest burgers + barbecue usually go over fairly well. 

I've made my fair share of burgers over the years - check out these popular ones - Apple Cheddar Turkey Burgers, Bacon & Bleu Pork Burgers and my Egg-in-the-Hole Cast Iron Skillet Burgers.

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

These Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers are perfect for Memorial Day, Father's Day or your next Summer family gathering. Double the recipe and it feeds over a dozen!

These patties are also easy to whip up and freeze for later - a neat meal prep idea. It's a great way to always have burgers on the ready for quick Summer dinners. With ball games and camps and kids going in every direction {wait, is that just my life?} it's nice to have simple dinners ready to go.

Give it a try!

Spicy BBQ Chicken Burgers

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

This fan favorite side dish has been a big hit for years! A combination of deviled eggs and a classic pasta salad come together for the best Summer side dish ever.

This post is sponsored by the Iowa Egg Council.

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

Warmer weather is finally here! And with that means all the fun side dishes that accompany those saucy grilled barbecue main courses. I mean, you can't have burgers, chops and ribs without a cold salad right next to it, right?

This Deviled Egg Pasta Salad has been around for awhile and my family quite literally geeks out when I make it. When the Iowa Egg Council and I started brainstorming dishes to showcase to kick off the Summer season my mind immediately went to THIS PASTA SALAD.

Why? Because it combines two of my favorites - eggs and pasta!

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

Deviled eggs are a staple around here in the Summer - a great combination of creamy egg yolks, mayo, mustard, dill pickle juice {my secret} and seasonings.

Pasta salads are also a big time staple around these parts - al dente pasta combined with a creamy and tangy sauce and often chopped vegetables.

SO WHY NOT COMBINE THE TWO.

That was my exact thought. And guess what? That is what I promptly did and it worked fabulously. You get both of your favorites in one bite!

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

If you've been around my blog for any amount of time you know our family LOVES EGGS. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks - we eat them often. The Iowa Egg Council and I have created so many recipes together over the years. Here are some of the popular ones!


We also eat eggs quite often as they are economical & quick - with three kids who are always hungry they can be a lifesaver. And Moms if you have young kids they are a great food for a baby's healthy brain development. The newly released 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans include recommendations for birth to 24 months old as eggs to be an important first food for toddlers. They also have one of the most concentrated sources of choline, a nutrient that has now been recognized as important for brain health.

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

I myself live in an egg producing state - Iowa being ranked No. 1 in the country. Who knew? Yep, we've got lots of corn and cows and pigs, but golly we also have a lot of eggs!

So naturally I end up putting them in all the things.

I cannot wait for you all to try this Deviled Egg Pasta Salad! It checks off all marks on Spring and Summer deliciousness. Cold, creamy, tangy and full of flavor. I made it again last week and served it will grilled brats, hot dogs and baked beans. Everyone scarfed it down and asked for seconds.

Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

Eggs are also naturally nutrient dense - basically a multivitamin in a shell! They have eight essential nutrients, with just one egg containing 6 grams of high-quality protein and all nine essential amino acids for just 70 calories.

Pretty much the perfect protein.

Let's face it - even if your kiddos pass on the brats or the hot dogs or even the baked beans, they'll still fill up on this salad.

Feel free to top with sliced green onions or even more chopped pickles {yes, there are dill pickles in this salad!} to make it look pretty and jazz it up. Trust me if you take this side dish to a gathering people will gobble it up. Make sure you bring along printed off copies of the recipe. They will ask for it!
Deviled Egg Pasta Salad

This Summer plan on making this yummy side dish over and over! And when people ask tell them it's a lovely combo "of deviled eggs and pasta salad". That alone will make them want to try it. 

Be sure to tag both me {@sweetsavoryeats} and the Iowa Egg Council {@iowaegg} when you give them one a try. We both would love to see your photos.

Thank you to the Iowa Egg Council for sponsoring this post.
