Want to add some spice to your life? Then check out this Bison Atomic Fireburger with Sweet Potato Tots Waffle Bun, created for @girlcarnivore’s #BurgerMonth by North Carolina blogger Kate Kelly from Life of a Ginger. This exquisite burger takes you for 0 to OMG in just seconds!
2 pounds ground bison
Generous shakes of Bone Suckin’ Cajun Seasoning & Rub, I used roughly 1 1/2 tablespoons
Freshly-ground black pepper, about 1/2 tsp
Cabot Fiery Jack shredded cheese
Yancey’s Fancy Habanero & Jalapeno (or Ghost Pepper if you are feeling brave) Cheddar, sliced
If you purchased your ground bison frozen, allow it to defrost in the fridge for about 2 days.
*Do not use olive oil. It burns at a lower temp and can produce an off-flavor in bison.
Bison is delicious when cooked from medium rare (135-140 degrees F for bison) to medium (about 145 degrees F). Do not cook bison to medium-well or well-done. It will be dry and barely edible.
Use a digital meat thermometer to be sure you cook your burgers properly. (Remember you stuffed them with cheese so don’t stick the thermometer directly in the middle of the burger.) This thermometer is my favorite because you can just insert the probe and set the desired temp and the thermometer will beep when the correct temp is reached.
