This and that: Bison Burger

Bison Burger

This week is going to a busy one for me... I get off work in a couple of hours... It is slow right now, so able to be on the computer.  But once I sleep for a couple hours, I need to get up and get ready as we are getting company.  I love having company as it is a good excuse to cook and after our linky party this weekend I have about 120 recipes that I can pick from to make... It is so much fun taking a recipe and making it my own.
 Then for the rest of the week I will be going to our church camp to work in the kitchen.  I love going there and working in the kitchen... Baking and cooking and visiting. I love the visiting and meeting new people and sharing stories. I can't wait to go again.  I will be there for three days, so this may be my only blog this week.

I made these burgers a couple of days ago and loved them.  My husband thought they tasted and smelt to much like smokes as I did have a rip-roaring flame going on as I was BBQing  them.  But I thought they were delicious.  I have only made buffalo or bison burgers a couple of times because the meat is very expensive.  I pay $9.99 for 1 lb but as there is only 2 of us.. I can make 4 1/4 lb burgers and that is good for 2 meals for us, so I guess it really isn't that bad ~ $2.50 per burger ~~ so maybe I will make them more often :).

Bison Burger ~ didn't want to eat it with a bun
so just had my tomato and spinach on top!
1 lb ground bison meat
1 tsp sage
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp minced onions
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/3 cups oats
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste.
2 tbsp oil

Combine all ingredients except oil.  Divide mixture into 4 and make patties.  Prior to putting on grill, brush oil on either side of burgers.  Put on hot grill and cook for 5 -6 minutes each side.

on the grill.. I did place tin foil on the grill as I had a rip roaring flame
and didn't want them to burn

the next day I decided to have a bun and added tillamook cheese

If you haven't had bison meat it should be something that you think about... It is a healthier alternative to beef  as it contains fewer calories and fat.  I also think it has much more flavour over beef.  So the next time you think burgers.... Think bison.

  1. I was thinking, "Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore." Then I thought,"Kansas is exactly where I'd expect to find bison!"

    It's an intriguing recipe.

  2. Where did you find your bison meat at? I have thought about trying something like this too, I recently read that bison meat is way healthier to eat. They look delicious and I would eat it the same way as you without the bun!

    1. Ramona, I think this last time I found it at Walmart.. but before I found it at Keweenaw Coop.. a little far from you but try your supermarkets, maybe they will have it.

    1. I love it too... We don't eat alot of ground beef, so when I feel like a burger I buy bison meat.

  4. I've never had bison meat, but it looks good enough! If it's healthier that's even better! The whole burger looks delicious!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great week!


    1. Tammy, it is very good... you should try it!

  7. I've never tried bison before, so this recipe would be a good one to start with! Thanks for sharing at Foodie Friends Friday!

  8. MMMMM I've seen bison at the store but haven't ever made a bison burger...but I think I will NOW! ;) Thanks for sharing at Party Thyme. This recipe has been pinned to my Party Thyme features board
