About This Recipe
“This burger is super lean and healthy but not lax on flavor.. If you haven’t tried buffalo this is a great place to start. I use my recipe for Cholestoral free mayo in this recipe”
2 lbs ground buffalo meat ( buffalo)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 pieces butter lettuce
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups crumbled blue cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
6 kaiser rolls
1/2 cup butter
Sauté the onions in the olive oil over medium-high heat until translucent. Turn off the heat and let it cool.
2 When the onions are cool enough to touch, use your (clean) hands to gently mix them in with the bison burger meat, and add everything else. Do not overwork the meat, it will result in a tough burger. Just gently fold it until the onions, sage, salt and pepper are well mixed inches.
3 Form patties with the meat, using about 1/4 to 1/3 of a pound of meat per patty. Here’s a tip on making the patty: if you press a slight indentation in the center of each patty it will help keep the burgers in a nice disk shape when cooking. Otherwise the burger will start to get a little egg-shaped as the edges contract from cooking.
4 Grill or fry the burgers on medium heat, about 6-7 minutes per side, less or more depending on the thickness of the burger and the heat of the pan/grill, or until the internal temperature is 140°F for medium rare, or 160°F for well done. A note on internal temperature. If you are getting the ground meat from a source you trust (we got ours from Whole Foods) that does their own grinding on site, or you grind your own meat, you can safely cook the burgers rare or medium rare. Otherwise you’ll want to cook the burgers until well done. Don’t press on your burgers while cooking, and keep the flipping to a minimum. Let the burgers rest about 5 minutes before serving.
Spread butter on each bun and place in in a hot skillet butter side down for a couple seconds until toasted.
Mix bleu cheese in mayo and spread on bun.
add barbecue sauce, lettuce and tomato.
