Blue Cheese Buffalo Burgers

Who knew buffalo meat was so lean and yet full of flavor?   Made burgers tonight that we devoured fast.   Juicy burger with sauted shallots, tangy blue cheese and a little crunch from the toasted onion bun.   Note to always saute the onions or shallots before using them as it adds so much more flavor.

Blue Cheese Buffalo Burgers

  • 2 lb buffalo (Bison) hamburger
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 1 T butter
  • splash of bourbon
  • salt and pepper
  • blue cheese, crumbled
  • onion buns, toasted
  • lettuce, mayo, etc
Directions:   Fire up your grill!   Mince the shallots.  Add 1 T butter to a saute pan and over medium heat, cook the shallots until soft and slightly toasty.

 In a large bowl, add the buffalo, splash of bourbon, sauted shallots, salt and pepper.  Mix well with hands and create the patties to your preferred size.   Grill over medium coals or via your gas grill to your own specific doneness.

While grilling, toast the buns either on a griddle or the grill until slightly brown.  Once done, assemble that burger.  I used a little bit of mayo, lettuce, the buffalo burger, blue cheese crumbles - in that order.   Either way you stack it up or slice it, you'll have an amazing Buffalo Burger!
