Jalapeño Cheddar Bacon Burger

Looking for something great to make this weekend?

Caleb and I are always up for trying new recipes. Sometimes I even like to think I'm inventive and attempt to create my own recipes. Sometimes the result is yummy {rhubarb compote} {sweet and spicy French toast} {spinach quiche} and sometimes the result is awful... like the eggplant parm episode of 2008... YUCK!

So Tuesday, when I told Caleb I was going to try something new he bravely went along for the ride. I didn't try anything too crazy and the result was one of my better attempts at culinary independence.

Jalapeño Cheddar Buffalo Burgers

1 pound ground buffalo
1 jalapeño pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1/8 tsp salt
Ground pepper
Garlic Powder
A couple dashes of hot sauce (or more depending on your taste)

1. Prepare the grill or preheat a pan to medium high heat.
2. Cook bacon until crisp and set aside to use as a topping.
3. Finely chop pepper and grate cheese if using blocked cheese like I did (I think this tastes better)
4. Mix together all ingredients and form into patties.
5. Cooked until desired "doneness" (is that a word???)
6. Top with bacon and serve on a bun with desired toppings!

They were absolutely delicious!!! And obviously you could substitute ground beef or turkey, but I love that buffalo is low in fat. I served our burgers with an avocado, black bean and corn salad.



  1. Mmm this looks delicious! I have never had buffalo!
