The other night I wanted to add a flavor twist to our usual bison burgers. I had seen a recipe for decadent bacon filled beef burgers in a magazine and I wanted to reinterprete them with about 20g less saturated fat. I found a nice compromise combining nitrate free turkey bacon with grass-fed bison. These burgers have loads of flavor, high protein and they are lean and clean.
Smoky burgers are awesome when we are in Telluride. Here I am before heading home for dinner at my favorite bookstore Between the Covers sipping Americano’s while my little guy munches pastries. This gives me a few minutes on my laptop.
Organic grass-fed bison is a delicious, full flavor, lean source of protein. I usually get mine at Whole Foods. You can also check your local butcher. Some online sources include www.grassfedtraditions.com and www.rockyplains.com.
