Good eats: The making of Bison Burgers

bison burgers

I had recently come across ground bison meat in the grocery store and decided it was something I wanted to try. I did a quick search for “bison burger recipe” and chose the top result (from Epicurious) as a starting point. The recipe (Bison Burgers with Cabernet Onions and Wisconsin Cheddar) seemed intriguing so that’s what I went with.

I should start out in saying that I suck at cooking. Completely. I’m very impatient and hate following directions, so things usually don’t turn out too well.

I deviated from the recipe a tiny bit, but in the end I think it turned out to be pretty tasty for a first effort.

I’m pretty sure I didn’t cook the onions right and I definitely used too much wine (Once Upon a Vine: The Big Bad Red Blend), but I think the rest ended up being quite good (for my poor culinary skill and “I’ll eat anything” tastes).

Yup, I served on paper plates 🙂

I enjoyed the process of cooking and hope to try out some more recipes someday. The one thing I will say is it turned out to be a little pricey ($44… 1LB of bison meat was $10 and the wine was about $12 so that’s the bulk of it).
