Mini Bison Lettuce Wrap Burgers!

Ok so you get the irony, yes? Bison is anything but mini.. but hey, I love anythign that comes in a little yummy package! and these burgers are sure to please.

Bison has become the sweatheart meat for fitness pro’s – and known as the “good for you red meat”. While bison doesn’t have much on it’s cow cousin in terms of cholesteral upsides, bison has less than 50% the fat and less calories than beef.

So I whipped up a batch of mini burgers to put with a lettuce wrap and avocado – 2 of these will fill you for lunch at about 200 calories, only 8 grams fat (wow!) and 26g protein! And delicious to boot..

 

Ingredients (makes 8 mini burgers):

  • 0.8 lb (13 oz) Ground lean bison meat
  • 1 egg white from whole egg
  • 1/4 cup raw oats
  • 1 tbs. worcester sauce
  • 1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • lettuce leaf (butter lettuce works best)
  • avocado

Mix the first 5 ingredients together and shape to form mini burger patties (should make 8 total)

Bake on 400 degrees for approximately 10-15 minutes (bison cooks much faster than beef, so watch the temp!)

Place inside lettuce leaf and top with 1 slice (about 1/8 of a whole) avocado

ENJOY!
