What do you do when you realize the bison meat you just bought has a sell by date of tomorrow? you improvise!
The best part is, Tom was actually willing to try these bad boys! Unlike 95% of what I cook: “veggies…ew!”
I had looked up a million and a half bison recipes trying to find the most alluring dish, but when it came down to it, I wen’t for simplicity. I’ve definitely learned that simple recipes just work.
And so, I introduce to you: Bacon-Wrapped Grass-Fed Bison Burgers
1 lb grass-fed ground bison meat (found at my regular grocery store!)
1 whole egg
1/2 white onion, finely diced
prepared steak seasoning (yeah, I know its not strict paleo or “clean”…it’s just easy!)
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices thick cut bacon
- preheat oven to 350 F
- combine bison, onion, egg, seasonings in a bowl
- form into 4 even “patties” but keep them pretty thick! (they will seem huge!)
- Wrap each patty with one slice of bacon, it should be the perfect length to not have to cut any excess off. Secure with toothpick for baking.
- Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and back for 30 minutes.
