Just a Note:

This is a great appetizer for any gathering or a serving of 2 makes the base for a great meal.  Try serving with roasted potatoes and asparagus with prosciutto.  We’ve roasted our potatoes with Mean Moe’s Bad As Rub and topped it all off with a bold IPA.

A Bit about Burnett’s Butcher Shop

Burnett’s Butcher Shop

Not only is this a carnivore’s delight, but a shoppers haven.  Everything but the beer is available in the store.  There are even bread and dessert choices to make your meal totally complete.  Now that we’ve (hopefully) had the last snow of the season, take out the BBQ and get ready for the best Canadian season of all – BBQ Season.

On a side note:

If you haven’t had your Easter Celebration yet, and lamb is on the menu – Burnett’s have you covered.  Shop there for some of the best Ontario Lamb.  It’s heavenly.
