Bison with Apple Burgers

These Apple Bison Burgers were absolutely delicious! We did not serve them with buns but had them with burger fixings, guacamole, sweet potato fries and roasted squash. This makes for a great summer meal.

Let’s look at the ingredients, shall we?

I believe the apple really helped to keep the burger moist. It was a great combination!

You’ll be tossing all the ingredients together (in the correct measurements – of course).

Then you’ll be putting them on a skillet to cook them.  I used a little bit of olive oil on the bottom of the skillet just to get things going. Once you see that they are turning brown on the bottom, flip them over and cook them on the other side.

They should be cooked all the way through — no RED in the middle.

  • 20 ounces of ground bison
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 red apple, peeled and diced
  • 2 teaspoons minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

The leftovers made great breakfast patties.


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Form the meat into patties (whatever size you’d like).
  3. Grill the patties in a skillet until they’re cooked.

I served the burgers on a bed of lettuce with sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, Guacamole, Baked Sweet Potato Fries and Sauteed Yellow Zucchini.

And this is the final product  with all the fixings
