The start of my quest to eat all of the local fauna here in Austin Texas, I settled on some freshly ground Bison. There's a place not far that will mail order Snapping Turtle meat, but I need to work out how to sneak that in without the better half knowing that I'm eating turtle. This is also the first food cooked in the house I just bought here. Bison, or Buffalo is a great lean meat that is perfect for cooking nice and rare. This is a very simple burger to make, for the meat itself I just used a quarter pound of ground bison and salt and pepper. I mixed it together quickly by hand and then shaped it. A good trick here is to indent the middle of the burger so that as it cooks and puffs up a bit it doesn't become round so you don't need to constantly flatten it. I cooked it on a cast iron griddle pre-heated to smoking and fried up some onion and tomato along with it. When I turned it I added a slice of swiss cheese to the cooked side. Just before ready i quickly toasted some bread with olive oil on it on the pan as well.
