Recipe By Nate Stutzke, Savory Spice customer and friend

"4B" refers to the bison, blue cheese, basil, and bacon that give this burger layers and layers of flavor. Try ground bison for a leaner but still flavorful option to ground beef. 

Recipe Notes

This recipe also works with beef instead of bison.

Ingredients

For the burger:




1 lb. ground bison

For the toppings:

4 hamburger buns

1 cup blue cheese crumbles

1 beefsteak tomato, sliced

1 bunch fresh basil

4 slices cooked bacon, cut in half

Add ground bison and mix with hands until well combined. Form mixture into 4 patties. Grill burgers until cooked through, about 5 min. per side. Toast buns on grill while burgers are cooking.
