Bison Burgers with Gorgonzola Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

“That’s a mouthful.” I say, biting into the delicious burger. That’s what she said, I think in the back of my mind.

There are some good things to be said about unemployment: I’ve had more time for exercise, video games, baking, cooking, household chores, you name it. With today’s technologies it doesn’t take long to apply for a dozen new jobs every morning, and as I’m an early go-getter type, I’m done my job searching by 9 AM.

That leaves me a lot of time to experiment … that’s what she said.

Bison Burgers with Gorgonzola Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomatoes


  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 2-3 ounces of gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • Pepper to taste
  • Whole-grain hamburger buns


  1. Combine cheese, tomatoes, garlic and spices in a bowl.
  2. Add bison and lightly mix the ingredients together.
  3. Form the meat into even-sized patties.
  4. Place burgers on a pre-heated grill and cook for about 4 minutes per side over medium heat or until an internal temperature of 160°F is reached.
  5. Serve on buns and try garnishing with fiery Dijon mustard.

Makes 4 to 6 patties

An incredibly satisfying meal. That’s what she said. Oh grow up.
