Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS

June 27, 2018 at 5:03 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS. You’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Burger and Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon to make the recipe. Plus you have 2 options for stuffing the Buffalo Burgers; Caramelized Vegetable and Mozzarella Stuffing and Mediterranean Stuffing. Either way will be a winning Burger! You can find this recipe at the Wild Idea Buffalo website where you can also purchase all the Wild Idea Products. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS
My brother forwarded on a u-tube clip of the B.B.Q. Guys making Bacon Wrapped Beer Can Stuffed Burgers. For their recipe they used a half-pound of 80% lean ground beef, pork bacon, and then stuffed it with pulled pork, roast beef, and cheese! They had ribs grilling too, but that was just for snacking! No kidding. I thought to myself, “heart attack” and, “I bet using Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, and our 95% lean ground buffalo, that I could make a healthier, delicious version”. Below are two options that I think you will really enjoy, and its Paleo friendly!

Ingredients for Meat: (makes 3 burgers)

1 – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Burger
6 – strips Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – bottle beer

Preparation for Meat:

1) Spread meat out onto a plate. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, and olive oil over the meat. Mix the seasoned meat together with your hands and portion into three even sized balls.

2) Transfer the balls of buffalo meat to a platter. Press a beer bottle into the center of the portioned meat and bring the meat that squishes out to the sides, up the sides of the bottle uniformly.

3) Wrap the meat with two pieces of Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, overlapping the two pieces. Secure bacon with a couple of toothpicks.

4) Remove beer bottle, and stuff with one of the fillings below, pressing in lightly.

5) Pre-heat grill to medium high heat, around 450°. Insure grill grates are clean and oiled. Using a spatula transfer the burgers to the grill, turn the burners that they are directly under the burgers off, and drop the remaining lit burners that are to the sides or side of them to a medium low setting. This will drop your grill temperature to around 325°. Close lid and grill for about 12 minutes rotating burgers halfway through cooking. Move burgers over direct heat, and turn burner to high. Close lid and grill for about two minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

I served the stuffed buffalo burgers with foil wrapped grilled potatoes, which kept all the hot cooking outside. Accompany with a green salad.

Filling Options:

Caramelized Vegetable and Mozzarella Stuffing (stuffs 3 burgers)

Ingredients:
8 – ounces crimmini mushrooms, steams removed and sliced
1 – medium sweet onion, chopped
2 – tablespoons butter
1 – tablespoon olive oil
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
2 – cloves garlic chopped
1/3 – cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
4 – ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preparation:

1) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat butter and olive oil. Add onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper and sauté stirring occassionally, for about 25 minutes, or until nicely browned.

2) Add the garlic cloves and sundried tomatoes, stirring in to incorporate. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes.

3) Remove pan from heat and allow to come to come to room temperature.

4) Once cooled off, stir in shredded mozzarella cheese.

This is sooo good, you will be sneaking bites out of the pan! 🙂

Mediterranean Stuffing :(stuffs 3 burgers)

Ingredients:
1 – cup chopped spinach
¼ – cup pepperoncini, chopped
¼ – cup kalamata olives, chopped
¼ – cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
¼ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
5 – ounces feta cheese, crumbled

Preparation: Mix all ingredients in bowl to incorporate.

This too is super good too!

Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off! One delicious Breakfast! Outside passing thunderstorms, humid and 80 degrees. After Breakfast we took Mom’s car to Auto Shop, a small hole in the exhaust. Back home did some work around the house for the remainder of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight a new Buffalo Burger from Wild Idea Buffalo! I prepared a Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

Well another new item from the folks at Wild Idea Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER (3 BURGER PER LB). If you follow my blog you know I love Buffalo (Bison) and use it when ever I can. My favorite brand is the Wild Idea Buffalo. The best Buffalo Steaks and Burgers that I’ve found! They have been coming out with some new Buffalo Products of late and I’m trying the Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger. It comes frozen and there’s 3 – 1/3 lb. Burger Patties. The Premium Ground Buffalo is mixed with Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese, and seasoning. I’ll be preparing it as I do all Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers.

 

 

To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, lightly seasoned. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. Served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. Love these New Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGERS!There was nice bites containing the Blue Cheese and there was bits of the Buffalo Bacon throughout the Burger, excellent Burger! I had the Burger plain. It was the first time having it and I just wanted to taste the natural flavor, and it was fantastic. Wild idea suggests topping it with Grape Jelly. I think next time I may top it off with some Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon and some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. But a great Burger from Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

Then for a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER (3 BURGER PER LB)
Our 100% prairie grass-fed Premium Ground Buffalo mixed with our 100% Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese and just the right amount of seasoning! For additional flavor try it with grape jelly or your favorite preserve – absolutely scrumptious! We did the work for you and… you’re welcome! Three one-third pound handcrafted burgers per package.
