Bison Sliders

For my birthday, a family member gave me some fun kitchen items and one of them was a mini-burger/slider pan. I knew the the kids would go crazy for the mini versions so I took out the ground Bison and went to work. Naturally, you do not need a special pan. Simply fire up the grill or oven and make some mini-burgers.
 
Ingredients (Yields: 5 servings (2 burgers per person)):
1 lb. ground bison/buffalo
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup minced green peppers
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoon chives, minced
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
½ cup sweet pepper strips
20 slices cheddar cheese
1 cup baby spinach
10 Mini whole wheat rolls
Instructions:
1. Preheat the grill to medium.

2. Combine the ground meat with the garlic powder, green peppers, chives, salt, and ground pepper. Mix well and form 10 small patties (about 1.5 generous tablespoons each)

3. Place the burgers on the grill (medium) and cook 2-4 minutes depending on thickness of burger and desired doneness.

4. Flip the burger and cook another 2-4 minutes, topping with the cheddar for the last 30 seconds.

5. Place onto bottom bun, top with sweet peppers, spinach and upper bun.

ks yummy! I've never had bison before, but I imagine it'd be quite yummy as a slider!

Yum! I recently found that one of my local markets carries bison, so I am excited to give it a try at home!

These bison sliders look great for getting little ones to participate in healthful meals! I work with the Healthy Monday campaigns, and we are looking for recipes just like this for our new program, The Kids Cook Monday. We are encouraging bloggers to post recipes like this on Mondays (or videos or even stories of cooking with kids) to get families started on the right track each week.
