Bison Burgers with Goat Cheese

Another perfect summer meal: bison burgers with goat cheese served with brandywine tomato and arugula with a side of steamed white corn and grilled zucchini. Delicious.

The burgers on a grill pan (for two):
What you need:
-1/2 pound bison ground meat
-1/2 medium onion chopped
-teaspoon or less hot sauce
-1 egg
-sprinkle of fresh herbs (we often use rosemary)
-anything else that looks good to throw in there!

The burger itself is a bit of a mystery to me. The burger master of the house whips together the above ingredients and makes the mixture into two perfectly formed patties. These are tossed on the heated grillpan for about 4-5 minutes a side. Do not fuss with the burgers while on the grillpan.

With the burgers on the grill, we put the four ears of corn (already cleaned off) into a pot with about 1 inch of water. Let the boiling water steam the corn for 10 minutes.

Also, we sliced the zucchini and put them on the grillpan with the burgers. These need to be flipped a couple time to make sure that they grilled as you like them.

When the burgers are finished, let them rest on a plate and toast the burger buns. With the buns toasted, spread a layer of goat cheese on each side. Layer the bun with the burger, then giant slice of tomato and finally a bunch of arugula.

Admire the burger and plate full of summer joy. And then, dig in.
