Summer is around the corner... we are so ready to enjoy some outdoor fun, grilling and nice sunny days.
For this recipe I decided to combined two of my favorites recipes: bison burgers and caprese salad. The bison is a lean and heart healthy meat. The caprese salad is a very simple and refreshing salad. Just a few ingredients like fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, with a nice drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze and extra virgin olive oil.
This is my twist on these traditions recipes. I simply seasoned the ground bison meat with salt, pepper, 1/4 cup of almond flour and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. I combined all the ingredients and grabbed about 1/4 cup of meat, turned into a ball. Then I combined the mozzarella ( I used shredded mozzarella) with thinly chopped basil. I stuffed the bison burgers with the cheese and basil and make the burger patties.
In a hot cast iron grill pan I cooked the patties for about 4 minutes each side for medium well finish. The cheese inside is nice and melted.
In a hot pan I sauteed about 1 cup of cherry tomatoes in olive oil, and 1 garlic clove, seasoned with salt and pepper and add fresh chopped basil at the end. This will be our topping for the bison burgers.
