Bacon Cheddar Burgers by Lisa Barksdale
As the winner of our first ever Great Range Bison recipe contest, we believe this recipe is about as delicious as they come, but don't take our word for it. This is what our guest judge, Felicia from The Starving Chef has to say:
This is now one of MY favorite burger recipes! There’s no frills needed for this classic burger – the charred onions and the addition of Dijon mustard and light mayonnaise go perfectly with the savory flavor of bison.
- 1 lb (1 package) ground bison meat
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 4 pub style hamburger buns - or brioche rolls
- 1 medium red onion - sliced
- 4 slices thick cut bacon - cooked and cut in half
- 4-5 teaspoons whole grain Dijon mustard
- 4-5 teaspoons light mayonnaise
- 1 cup fresh baby greens
- 1-2 roma tomatoes - sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Olive oil - for cooking
Lightly mix the ground bison, salt and pepper and form into four equal burger patties. Preheat the grill to 400 F. Toast buns on grill about 2 mins and set aside.
Brush grill with olive oil and char onions for about 6-8 mins and remove from grill.
Place burgers on grill and cook about 2-3 minutes on each side then top with the cheese to melt it.
Spread mustard and mayo on the bun, add the burger patty then top each burger with bacon slices, onion, tomato slices, and baby greens.
