Serves 4

Healthy, Delicious Bison Burger Ingredients

  • Ground Bison – or ground Elk
  • Onion or shallot
  • Garlic cloves
  • Stone-ground or Dijon mustard
  • Fresh thyme (or one teaspoon of dried thyme– or sub in dried Italian herbs)
  • Olive oil- optional but adds moisture.
  • Serve with your favorite fixings- grilled onions, buns, mayo, mustard, BBQ sauce, tomato, lettuce, fermented pickles, pickled onions, melted cheese, etc.

Healthy, Delicious Bison Burger Directions

  1. Mix ground bison with garlic, shallot, fresh thyme, mustard, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add a tablespoon of olive oil. This is optional but produces a less dry burger.
  3. Form into patties that are slightly indented in the centers for more even cooking.
  4. Grill over medium-high heat (covered) until good grill marks appear, rotating to create hash marks.
  5. Move to a cooler part of the grill (or lower the heat) to cook through to the desired temperature. Tip: Since bison has lower fat content than beef, it can get dry; the secret is not to overcook!
  6. Make the optional Bison Burger Sauce (Smoky Tangy Mayo) by mixing mayo with smoked paprika and mustard.
  7. Build your perfect burger! Tip: Grilling the bun gives a nice toasty texture and flavor!
