BBQ Bacon Bison Burgers

Sharing is Tasty ~

When I launched this blog, I had many friends and family members offer recipe ideas for me to try. My friend Megan and I were talking one day about lean meat options and she told me about ground bison. I had never tried it. To be fair, I hadn't really had any exposure to it. So, I figured there's no time like the present. I'm so happy to share this recipe with you for BBQ Bacon Bison Burgers!

I think Megan's suggestion was pretty awesome. You get a nicely-flavored red meat that is leaner than other red meats, like ground beef. Even the leanest mix of ground beef can still produce unwanted grease. The ground bison gives you a low fat red meat with great flavor.

These recipe brainstorm sessions have become one of my favorite parts of being a food blogger. When I talk to the people around me about the foods they love to eat, they instantly light up and get excited to talk about it. I LOVE to see the look of pure joy on their faces. I'm so lucky that I get to share in these moments with so many people in my life.

Another great part of this blog is getting to share all of this with you. All of these conversations, brainstorms and recipe testing sessions get put together to post for you. And I love that my foodie following is welcoming them into their homes. It's kinda awesome!

If you ever have ideas or things you'd like to see, please send them my way. Even if you have a recipe that you love but it needs to be less calories, I'll happily find ways to reduce them. Send me an email at sayhello@wholeftthefatout.com.
