Bison doesn’t taste at all gamey, has almost 25% fewer calories than beef, and is lower in fat than beef, chicken, and even some fish.

Crunchy, cheesy, bison-y? What's not to love?

    Make the burgers

    • Put all burger ingredients, except the buns, in a bowl. Gently mix with your (clean) hands.

    • Divide the mix into 6 equal parts. Fashion each into patties with the burger press. Presentation counts.
    • Slap the patties on the grill and season with SPG. Grill 5 minutes each side for medium-rare.
    • Put the burger on the bottom bun. Top with a little salsa and serve the rest on the side.
    • Put a tablespoon or so on the cheese mixture each patty.
    • If you used a stovetop grill, slide the entire grill into the oven. Otherwise, put the patties on a foil-lined baking sheet and put into the oven.
    • Turn the broiler on High.
    • Don't be like Ludwig with his ADD and wander off. Yeah, I've seen it happen. Watch those burgers like a HAWK.
    • When the bleu cheese / panko mixture starts to brown, pull the burgers carefully out of the oven. Don't forget to turn the broiler off. Yeah, seen that, too.
    • If you want, toast the buns for about 2 minutes.
