Buffalo Burgers with Carmelized Onions & Swiss

So I was craving a burger last night, but it is the week, which means I "need to be healthy".  Adam always raves about buffalo burgers - how good they are and how lean they are.  So...I trekked out to Whole Foods, bought some buffalo meat, and decided to give it a whirl.

The meat was tender, juicy and abundant.  With the delicious carmelized onions and creamy melted swiss, this was a great change from chicken dinners, healthy, and full of flavor!

Serves 2


1 lb ground buffalo (bison) meat
2 slices swiss (I use lacey swiss, it's lower fat & sodium)
4 med yellow onions
seasonings (I use Weber Chicago Steak seasoning, but whatever is in your cabinet will do!)
olive oil

Mix together ground buffalo, salt, pepper, worchestershire, and seasonings.  Make 2 patties, and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Slice onions and saute in a pan with 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp margarine on medium heat.  Toss regularly, until browned and carmelized (about 40 minutes).

Cook burgers in pan on medium heat, 5 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.  Buffalo meat is good meat, so medium rare is okay.  I like mine medium, slightly pink in the middle.

Remove burgers from heat.  Place a slice of swiss on top, then the carmelized onions.
