It seems like an unlikely combination, but it is oh so goooood! This is one of my favorite go-to breakfasts. I like to pair it with steamed ginger broccoli and organic mixed greens with thinly sliced radishes.
Blueberry Bison Burgers
1 pound ground bison
*You can also substitute ground turkey if you wish.
1 large shallot, finely minced
1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup organic blueberries, well rinsed
2 teaspoons coconut oil or duck fat
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the bison, minced shallot, Celtic sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and blueberries. Using your hands, mix the ground bison, seasonings and blueberries together. Shape into 6 small patties.
Heat coconut oil or duck fat over medium-high heat in a 10- or 12-inch cast-iron skillet. When the coconut oil is hot (but not smoking), add the patties. Cook apx. 3 mins on one side over medium-high heat. When patties are browned, flip burgers, reduce heat to low and cover the skillet, cooking another 3 minutes.
*Bison is very lean and cooks quickly; take care not to overcook.
