Sage Bison Burgers

Sage Bison Burgers

Bison is a very lean meat and an excellent source of protein and iron. It is a great way to add variety to the kinds of proteins you choose and of course, celebrate Canada's 150th birthday with a local food.


  • 1 lb ground bison
  • 2 tablespoon fresh sage chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ­2 tablespoons choice of fat we used bacon fat


  • Mix your burger ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Make burger patties and place burgers in a skillet under medium heat with your choice of fat or grill on the BBQ. We cooked 5-6 strips of bacon to top of burgers in the skillet first then used the bacon fat to cook the burgers.
  • Cook on both sides for about 5­-8 minutes or until cooked to preference.
