Buffalo Burgers with Caramelized Onions

This time of year in Colorado we can get snow, or 65 degrees some times in the same day so having a burger recipe you can pivot quickly from outdoor cookie to indoors is a good thing to have in your back pocket. This is one of these recipes and just happens to feature one of my favorite meats: Ground Buffalo or more correctly Bison. A quick note on Bison: not many people realize that although it features a flavor profile very similar to beef, ground buffalo is a much healthier choice featuring fat an cholesterol counts lower than chicken!

Sloppy Joe Recipe

Sloppy joes are so easy to make and they don't take much time either. My family came up with a very simple yet non-traditional sloppy joe recipe that uses ground turkey instead of ground beef. Trust me, the ground turkey will taste great. You will not be able to tell the difference. It is just as tasty as ground beef, but it is better for you. I also sometimes use the meat from this recipe in tacos, or I do a Hamburger Helper style meal with it and mix in egg noodles and green onions. This meat is really versatile!
