Nowadays, people think twice before eating a burger. There’s this stigma towards burgers. They aren’t healthy. But that’s not true for all burgers. I still enjoy burgers quite often.
The burgers on my dinner table are healthier versions of the ones served at your local burger joint. This burger patty recipe is one example.
If you’re looking for a healthier meat option, Grilled Bison Burger has less fat when compared to beef. Bison burger is 90 percent beef and only 10 percent fat.
Also, when you compared bison burger to a beef burger, bison has only 152 calories while your average beef burger has 230 calories. That’s almost half the calories!!!
Burger Patty Recipe
When cooking your buffalo burger, it’s important not to overcook the meat. If you want your meat to be juicy, don’t cook it past medium.
Also, any form of meat will plump during cooking. For this, I flatten my bison burger before cooking in this burger patty recipe. You can also make a small dent in the back of the burger patty to ensure even frying.
I recommend freezing this burger patty recipe before cooking. This prevents the burger patty from breaking. Especially if you’re a beginner, popping the patties in the freezer will make your life so much easier.
In this burger patty recipe, I add the seasoning during the cooking process. This has two advantages. Firstly, the salt prevents the burger from sticking to the pan and going all mushy. Secondly and most importantly, salt dries out the burger patty. That’s why I keep the salt for the very last minute.
How to Make Sweet Potato Fries
I find that baked sweet potato fresh is the perfect side dish with a bison burger. Not only are they healthy, but they taste great too.
So, how to make sweet potato fries?
One common problem that most cooks face is that their sweet potato fries in the oven come out soggy or wilted. They don’t have the same look and texture of store-bought baked sweet potatoes.
My trick is to put let the sweet potatoes sit in ice cold water for 10 minutes. This removes the excess starch. Also, pat dry your sweet potato fries before putting them in the oven.
And if you’re wondering how to make sweet potato fries in the oven that don’t stick to the pan, then I’ll let you on to my secret.
Place your baking trays in the oven during the preheating process. When your trays are hot, the baked sweet potatoes will come out fresh, crispy and intact. You won’t need a knife to scrape out all the crisp part.
You can always adjust the spice level after cooking the sweet fries. I find that a little extra spice on my baked sweet potato fresh compliments well with the sweet, mushy flavor of the fries.
