Looking for a healthy alternative to burgers for this 4th of July?

Try ground Bison (otherwise known to some as buffalo)! This meat is leaner, more flavorful and juicier than ground beef.


My friends and I recently tried out a couple of different toppings on simple grilled (on a non-stick grill pan) burgers. To make them even healthier I went with a “slider” style mini burger. Making sure that the burgers where more portion control friendly.



The first was a play on the traditional burger~ Bison Burger Topped with Dill Pickle Slices, Ketchup, Dijon Mustard, Mayonnaise, Shredded Oxcan and Cheddar Cheese Blend, and Quick Pickled Grilled Red Onions.



The second burger with a healthy option~ Bison Burger Topped with Arugula, Avocado and Quick Pickled Grilled Red Onions.



The final burger was made to really showcase the meat and it’s full flavor~ Bison Burger Topped with BBQ Sauce.

To be honest we loved them all. There was no clear winner. The burgers where all a hit! So whatever you want to top your Bison burger with feel content in knowing that you are eating healthy.
