I’ve never been much of a hamburger person. When I was little I thought they tasted like dirt!!
Recently though… I’ve been REALLY getting into them so I decided to try a healthier version at home.
In comes the bison. It’s pretty much a traditional burger BUT the pickled onions are no joke!! They totally change the game.
1/2 Red Onion sliced THIN
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar (with-the-mother)
1 lb Ground Bison
1 1/2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
Slice the onions super thin & place them in a bowl with the vinegar to macerate. Leave them in for at least 30 minutes BUT you can leave them for days
Place the rest of the ingredients up to the black pepper in a bowl & mix together. I wash my hands and get in there. The other thing to note is you don’t want to over-work the meat or else it will get tough. So just mix it until it’s combined.
Now it’s time to make the patties. You should be able to get about 8-10 patties out of a lb of meat. They will probably look like sliders to you BUT most of the hamburgers served in restaurants are WAY too big!
Now you can either grill them OR do what I did and cook them in the skillet inside.
While they are cooking, slice up your tomato & pull the lettuce leaves for the toppings.
Once done, I LOVE my burgers lettuce wrapped. They are super refreshing!!
