I was recently in Dewey Beach, Delaware for a Pop music festival and stumbled upon a local bar that served bison burgers. Being familiar with Bison meat and its “better than beef” claims, I decided to order their Bison beef slider special. After three delicious sliders made it down to my belly, I still felt light, unlike the sluggish feeling I get after a fatty beef burger.
Like I mentioned earlier this week, wild meats like bison contain less saturated fat than your typical red meat. So if you’re looking for a healthier option then try picking some wild meat at your local butcher or market.
Check out this easy recipe to make a lean, mean Bison Burger!
- 1 lb ground bison meat
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp bread crumbs
- 1 Egg
- Salt n peppa
- Mix all ingredients together
- form your patties and refrigerate for an hour
- Grill it up!
- Enjoy this lean bison patty on a whole grain roll or wrap it in a lettuce leaf if you’re watching your carbs. The topping combinations are endless so get creative. Some of my favorite toppings are sauteed onions, mushrooms, blue cheese crumbles and some pungent swiss cheese.
Just because you’re watching your weight, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste.
