Spicy, savory bison burgers make for delectable dinner

burgers.jpgGame for trying game? Whether you're a game meat novice or aficionado, I came up with a recipe for bison burgers that is sure to delight your tastebuds and spice up your dinner.

This burger recipe plays on the buffalo wing concept. The bison meat is topped with oven-fried onion rings, blue cheese and a spicy buffalo wing aioli. The result is a superb burger with just the right amount of kick (the burger is shown at left. Bee photo by Autumn Cruz).

For those of you who may be unfamiliar (or a little wary) of eating bison, it tastes much like beef, only it has a bit stronger of a flavor profile. Ranched bison can be found at some local grocers, such as Raley's, or ordered online.

Still leary? Just swap out beef for bison and you'll have a burger almost as delicious.
