Buffalo: It’s What’s For Dinner (Pepperjack Pesto Burgers) December 23, 2013

Buffalo Burgers.

The hubs is an avid gardener and routinely gives garden treats to our neighbors… After a recent butternut squash giveaway, he came back home with some ground buffalo.  I wasn’t sure what buffalo tastes like, and was considering a lasagna (I was concerned that it might be “gamey”).  After consulting with my 13 year old Sous Chef, we opted for burgers instead.

.

We decided to go “gourmet” on these burgers, and had to make do with ingredients on hand.  We topped each burger (right after flipping) with a thick piece of pepperjack cheese, and a small dollop of home-made pesto( https://locarbjabberwockey.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/easy-homemade-pesto/ ).  We also sauteed half an onion and some mushrooms, for an additional yummy topper.

The fam’s burgers were served on English muffins, with mayo, homemade pickles, grape tomatoes, and lettuce.  For me the low carb version was served on a bed of lettuce to replace the bun.  Two thumbs up for buffalo meat !

Low Carb BBQ Burgers.

The better half harvested 3 huge bowls of Walla Walla Sweets from the garden, so BBQ burgers and Baked Onion Rings were our Friday night dinner!

Condiments for the burgers were:

Pepper Jack cheese
Lettuce
Tomato
Avocado
Grilled Onions
Mayo, Ketchup, Mustard

Burgers were done on the BBQ… The family’s were served on wheat rolls, mine served on lettuce leaves.

Oven Fried Onion Rings

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
4 teaspoons kosher salt
2 cups buttermilk
4 eggs
3 cups panko breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 large yellow sweet onions, such as Maui, sliced 1/4-to-1/2-inch thick

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place parchment paper onto 2 baking sheets and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, paprika and 2 teaspoons salt. In another bowl or shallow dish, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs. Add half of the flour mixture to the buttermilk and beat until smooth and thickened.

In a separate bowl, combine the panko, olive oil and remaining 2 teaspoons salt.

Lightly dredge the onion rings in the flour mixture and then drop into the buttermilk. Drain the excess batter and then dredge in the panko mixture.

Arrange on the prepared baking sheets in a single layer. You can place smaller rings inside bigger rings if necessary, just make sure there is space between them. Then place in the oven. Cook until golden brown, 14 to 20 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, flip over each onion ring to ensure even crisping and browning.

These are great for “make ahead”.  You can prep  in advance the night before, pull out the pan the next day and just pop into the oven.  They also freeze well.

Pizza Burgers

3 pounds ground meat
2 medium onions
2 tsp. olive oil
1 can olives (6 oz. drained and sliced).
2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes
2 cans (6 oz each) tomato paste
2 Splenda packets
2 tsp. Kosher salt
2 Tbsp. basil
5 cloves garlic, minced
5 oz. mozzarella sliced for 10 patties

Sautee onions in olive oil.  Add tomatoes, olives, Splenda, salt, basil, garlic. Add tomato paste, and mix well.  Simmer on medium/medium low heat with the lid on for at least 15 minutes.  Sauce should be fairly “thick”.

Meanwhile, form the meat into ten patties, and pan fry until cooked. You can season these however you like….I generally use salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Put cooked patties into a 9×13 pan, and spoon 1/4 cup of the sauce over each one.  Top with sliced mozzarella.

Cook at 350 F for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is browned and bubbly.
