i have 1.5 days off this weekend, and having just finished a month of q4 call, it is feeling a bit like a 3 month vacation. the warm weather is only making things better. got off work as soon as i could and set to work with some beer and bbq’ing (what else am i supposed to when it’s 80 degrees for the first time in 6 months?). i ended up making some bison burgers from an old go-to recipe i have been using for several years. it is a spicy burger recipe and generally involves stuffing the patties with brie (throwing some bacon on the top is mind-blowing), but seeing as how we are slightly healthy as of late, we opted for the no cheese version (sinners!!).
first, you dice up some garlic, hot pepper ( i usually use a habanero), and scallions, add some cayenne and olive oil. mash this up with a fork, and then combine half or so with your ground meat. in our case, ground bison. i don’t think i will ever go back to beef. here’s where i usually create 2 patties, stuff with brie and the fore-mentioned mixture and head to the grill. tonight, i just mixed in some of the spiciness with the ground buffalo and went to the bbq.
buns were a little large
pretty pleased with the result, but can’t deny that brie and bacon wouldn’t have knocked these up several notches. oh well, delicious none the less. as i have slept only a few hours in the past 48, i am ready for bed at 8:30pm (the 3 beers has nothing to do with it).
