Spicy Sweet Potato Bison Sliders

Spicy Bison Burgers

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground bison
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 strips of bacon or turkey bacon diced up
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • Add avocado for added healthy fat and flavor
  • 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
  • Spinach, tomato, mushrooms, pickles, or any other desired toppings!
  • Safety: Cook burgers to a 145 °F minimum temp* 

Sweet potato buns:

  • Peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into 1/4-1/2 inch rounds.
  • The middle of the sweet potato is best for being used as “buns” as that is where they are the widest.
  • Drizzle some olive oil on them and sprinkle on salt and pepper.
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat or use a grill (I prefer using the grill)
  • Once the oil melts add the sweet potato rounds.
  • These cook fast because they are such a lean source of protein! About 3-4 minutes on the first side and only 2-3 on the second in a skillet or cook on the grill!

As you know I grew up on wild-game and it is also an incredibly rich source of protein and overall nutrition! Something you may not know about bison…

  • Ground bison is lower in calories because it’s lower in total fat content.
  • Bison has a similar amount of protein, but a higher protein-to-fat ratio to other meats.
  • Bison has better omega 6 omegala 3 ratios, with fewer overall inflammatory omega 6s.
