5 spring grilling essentials from Olliffe

5 spring grilling essentials from Olliffe

We’ve been talking about spring for a few weeks now, first in anticipation and then as we welcomed it with open arms. Now that we’ve enjoyed those first few warm, beautiful early spring days here in Toronto, we’re ready to grill—even if there’s rain in the forecast for the next week or so! (April showers bring May flowers, we suppose?)

If you’re ready to stock up your fridge and freezer with amazing local products that are perfect for grilling, stop by our Yonge Street butcher shop. Here’s a quick shopping list to help get you started—for personalized recommendations from our butchers, please contact us or speak to our team in store. We look forward to serving you.

Your shopping list

While every family has their own favourite products and recipes, here are a few high quality, delicious items we consider essential for springtime grilling.

  • Sausage: Our delicious, high quality sausages are handmade by expert butchers using exceptional Ontario pork and seasonings. We also have chicken and turkey sausage varieties to choose from.
  • Kebabs: Dinner made easy—made in store, these hearty, nutritious kebabs are packed with flavour.
  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: Marinate them, coat them in a great spice rub, or keep it simple with a dash of sea salt. No matter how you prepare your grilled chicken, this tender local poultry is always a hit.
  • Steak: Whether you favour a sirloin, rib eye or delectable Australian Wagyu strip loin, you’ll love every bite of this tender, delicious, beautifully marbled beef. Don’t forget to try our incredible Ontario beef tomahawk steak at least once in your life! (It won’t be just once—once you’ve had it, you’ll want it again.)
  • Burgers: We’ve linked to the whole collection, because it’s impossible to choose just one! Our classic beef burger is a staple in many customers’ kitchens, this dry-aged beef burger is a flavourful treat, our turkey leek burgers are excellent, and our tender lamb burgers are another nice alternative to beef. Looking for a bit of spice? Try a southwest chicken burger.
