Bison Burgers


Summer is around the corner! You know what that means..time to dust off the grill, set the flame on medium and start grilling! For those of you wanting a lean burger, bison is the way to go. Try this recipe and you will start roaming  in the open plains for more!



1 lb. ground bison
1 egg, beaten
1/4 – 1/3 c. Italian bread crumbs
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/4  tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup minced red pepper
1/4 cup minced onion
Montreal steak seasoning to taste
Cheese slices to taste

I used reduced fat swiss cheese and have used muenster, provolone, gouda, or mixed into the burger fat free feta crumbles or blue cheese.

How to Make:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl except for the Montreal Steak seasoning and sliced cheese.  Mix thoroughly.  (I use my hands.)  Shape mixture into 4 patties and season to taste with steak seasoning.  On pre-heated grill, cook bison burgers for approximately 4 minutes, then turn over.  Add cheese slices and cook approximately 4 more minutes.  DO NOT overcook—bison is extremely lean and is easily overcooked.  Enjoy!
