Bonnibelle’s Buffalo Burgers


Bonnibelle’s Buffalo Burgers - By Abbe and John
Named after our daughter, Bonnibelle, this burger combines special products of Vermont with Wild Idea Buffalo and their shared missions of quality and a sustainable environment.

1 lb ground buffalo
¼ cup real Vermont Maple Syrup
1 T Chili Powder
2 tsp Garlic Salt
½ tsp Paprika
½ tsp Worcestershire Sauce
¼ tsp pepper

One sweet onion sliced
12oz of good beer (recommend Switchback Ale by Switchback Brewing Co.)
One Granny Smith Apple, cored and sliced
1 lb thick cut bacon (recommend McKenzie Cob Thick Cut Sliced Maple Bacon)
¼ c of real Vermont Maple Syrup
Goat Cheese (recommend Vermont Creamery Goat Cheese)
Potato Buns, buttered and sprinkled with dried basil
Mix burgers and form into 4 patties. Cover and place in the refrigerator while the toppings are made.

Caramelize onions with 1 T of olive oil and 4oz of a good craft beer, such as Switchback Ale. Avoid using a beer that is very bitter like IPA. Should take about 20-30 minutes. Add additional beer if needed.

Cook the bacon and drain fat. Brush maple syrup onto both sides of the bacon and place back on the pan for about 1 minute on each side.

Grill burgers to desired temperature. While burgers are cooking, grill apple slices for a few minutes on each side, and toast buns on the grill.

Assemble the burgers on the buns, with the candied bacon, grilled apples, caramelized onions, and goat cheese spread on the top bun.
