Bison Burger Patties:

  • 12 oz ground bison
  • ¾ tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ghee

Arugula Salad & Toppings (amounts per serving):

  • oz or 2 cups baby arugula
  • ½ Roma tomato sliced
  • ½ avocado sliced
  • drizzle of Paleo-approved ketchup

Paleo Sweet Potato Mash:

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • splash of milk
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


To make bison burger patties:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ground bison, garlic salt, rosemary, and Dijon until well-integrated.
  • Divide into 4 parts and shape patties, with a small indentation in the middle to help it cook through more evenly.
  • Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add ghee and melt, followed by the burger patties and cook for 5-6 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 2 minutes for medium-rare, or longer if desired.
  • Remove from the grill and rest 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve over a bed of arugula with sliced tomato and avocado for a bunless paleo burger option, or serve however you like!
  • Yields 3 bison burger patties, 4-oz each.

To make Paleo sweet potato mash:

  • Cook sweet potatoes in oven or microwave. (I prefer to wrap my sweet potatoes in foil and bake in the oven at 425°F (220°C) for 45 minutes so they get caramelized.)
  • Allow to cool to the touch and peel off potato skins.
  • Mash with milk, cinnamon, and salt (or seasonings of choice), until as creamy or chunky as you prefer. Serve and enjoy!
  • Yields 3 servings Paleo mashed sweet potatoes.
