I can’t believe it’s already Labor Day weekend! Before we know it, stores will be riddled with festive Halloween costumes flung through the aisles. You’ll start to see sparkly stockings here and neon wigs there. But, besides Halloween, there are more costumes that the season of fall is best known for. Many of these jovial outfits are complete with colorful face paint, beer-soaked football jerseys, a foam finger, and of course, sweet and smoky barbecue sauce! There must be something about fall and the wintertime that makes dressing up so much more acceptable than any other time of the year. So while you’re kicking back in your recliner, sipping coffee from your company mug, and “sticking it to the man” in the most acceptable way possible, enjoy this Labor Day weekend with this modern barbecue slider recipe from Zestuous.com that’ll be perfect to pair with any other holiday this fall!
Yield: 6 burgers
Balsamic Fig Marmalade
Stuffed Pancetta Burgers
Instructions: Balsamic Fig Marmalade
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a sauce pot over medium-high heat. Add the red onion and garlic and sauté for 8 minutes. Add another tablespoon of butter and the remaining ingredients and cook down for about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes while you prepare the burgers.
Stuffed Pancetta Burgers
Heat the grill to medium-high. Dice the pancetta slices and mix in a large bowl with the beef, soy sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Form into six equal size balls. Using your thumbs, press an indention in the center of each ball. Add a spoonful of blue cheese or goat cheese into the center. Carefully form the meat around the ball and smash into a patty. Grill over medium-high heat for 6 minutes. Flip and grill another 6 minutes. Remove from grill and let rest while you prepare the buns. Cut the rolls in half and butter each side. Grill over low heat, until golden brown. Place a patty on the bottom of each roll. Top with a spoonful of marmalade. Add the top bun and serve.

It's that time of year again when the summer heat is at its hottest, the electric bills are at their highest, and the air is filled with the excited energy of "back to school" time. The month of August means new haircuts, papers and pens, plastic bins and baggies, new flashy backpacks, and the latest lunch box $10 can offer. While the youthful tastes of today are as ever changing as a Disney channel soap opera, the classics never do. Nowadays, kids drool over fruity fruit rollups riddled with tongue tattoos, and mystery gushers with surprising sour-tastic flavors. But honey has been around since as early as 2100 B.C., and this insect byproduct still continues to impress! Check out these crafty recipes below that make making sweet snacks fun and healthy!
