Bacon Bison CheeseburgersPosted: February 3, 2013
So, winter has reached it’s blah point. Every winter, there is a point in the middle where everyone feels a little down. It’s not for any reason in particular, it’s more because we are all so sick of the cold, slush and snow. When times like these hit, I aim to make the tastiest meal possible, to rid us of the winter blues. What’s screams summer more than a juicy burger? Nothing!I decided to go all out, with local bacon from Irving’s Farm Fresh.
With all the added ingredients.
Dress with your favourite fixings, like homemade pickles, and serve alongside a summer beer, like Alley Kat‘s Brewberry, to chase those inter blues away.
Jacquie’s homemade Bacon Bison Burgers
You will need:
1 pound local ground bison meat
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp rosemary, minced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 pack of bacon
1 medium onion
1 tbsp butter
5 slices of cheese
5 whole wheat buns
Your favourite burger condiments
Begin by slicing your onion and letting it caramelize with the butter in a pan, on low heat, for about 30-40 mins. While onion is caramelizing, begin cooking bacon. While your ingredients are cooking on the stove, make your patties. Combine bison, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic, rosemary and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Form patties with your hands. Cook on medium-high heat in a skillet until patties are cooked through. Let cheese melt on burgers burger assembling. Dress your bun with your favourite condiments and top burger with bacon, caramelized onions, lettuce, and pickles. Enjoy!
