Bison is lower in calories and fat but higher in protein than 90% lean ground beef, putting the “new red meat” ahead of the herd. It’s also higher in zinc, which can help power up your immune system.

  • For the burgers:
  • 1 lb bison, ground
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  • Dijon mustard
  • 1 tomato, cut into slices

In a large bowl, combine all of the burger ingredients. Divide the mixture into 4 burgers and flatten to about 1/2” thickness.

Serve your burgers on whole grain buns or wrap in a lettuce leaf. Cover with toppings and enjoy.
