Blueberry BBQ Bison Burgers (AIP/Paleo) are an interesting alternative to typical sliders. White sweet potato slices stand in as gluten free buns!Jump to Recipe
Summer is waning, y’all! I wanted to get this recipe out to you before it is completely gone, and you are no longer in the mood for burgers.
One quick disclosure: these are not really burgers, per se, but more like sliders. I couldn’t resist the alliteration! Ha!
OK, so these are actually made with ground bison. Have you tried it? It is much like hamburger, but maybe leaner, and with a little more flavor. And why would I use it? Eh, just to be different, and maybe also to find some other nutrients to keep my body entertained.
You may be wondering where to find ground bison. It may be more readily available than you think! I found it at my regular grocery store, right next to the hamburger. They even had ground elk! You might be surprised what is available if you keep an open mind.
Don’t ask me why I decided to make a blueberry barbecue sauce. The idea came to me, so I tried it. Turns out blueberries make a nice Q sauce. My advice to you is to use as much of this on your burger as you can. Serve some at the table so that people can really slather their burgers with the stuff.
I’ve made the instructions for baking these on a roasting pan together with the “buns.” This is just for ease. If you would like to try doing them on the grill, knock yourself out! I bet they will be just as yummy. You might want to make a dimple in the center of the patties as you form them, however, so that they don’t shrink and become ball-like rather than burger-like.
Enjoy your end o’ summer. Every last bit of it. As always, I’m wishing you much love and healing!
