My go-to grilled bison burger recipe is currently being featured over at SoFabFood.com. Bison is my favorite choice when it comes to ground “beef” style burgers. I enjoy the savory and lightly sweet flavor, and I love that bison are grass fed & pasture raised. Bison also have a lower fat content than ground beef which makes bison a great choice when it comes to perfectly grilled burgers, savory meatloaf, and flavorful stew.
The recipe for these perfect grilled bison burgers features Manchego cheese (from sheep’s milk), pasture raised bacon, Paleo mayo, red onions, dill pickles, and the best gluten free bun I’ve ever tried from Angie’s Gluten Free Kitchen in McMinnville, Oregon (but if you’re eating Paleo, no-starch check out this simple Paleo hamburger bun recipe). Now that I am eating starches & grains again, (yahoo!! my autoimmune diseases are in remission and I’ve never felt better – blog post with details to come soon!!), I finally got to stop in to Angie’s Gluten Free Kitchen in McMinnville, Oregon. I have so much appreciation and respect for Angie and her Gluten Free Bakery, as the whole kitchen there is soy-free, corn-free, dairy-free, and gum free! That means no guar gum or xanthan gums are used in her baked goods, which makes GF baking a much bigger challenge, but definitely worth all the effort! As I have read these gums can be inflammatory for many and quite a few people I know have reported experiencing inflammation and autoimmune flare-ups from them, so I am in no hurry to add those gums into my diet any time soon.
Angie’s Gluten Free Kitchen is open Tuesday through Saturday and if you make it in there I highly recommend her baguettes (just heavenly!), her bagels (they toast up fabulously!), and her sandwich loaf breads. If you live in the NW, I highly recommend putting Angie’s Gluten Free Kitchen on your must visit list! If you are driving in from a ways away, you call ahead to see what’s available that day or put in a special order. Angie also keeps a lot of staple items in the freezer like bagels, pizza dough (we love this too!), and breads.
Okay, be sure to head over to SoFabFood.com for this simple & delicious bison burger recipe!
