  • 1lb Ground Bison
  • 2 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped

  1. Place large skillet under medium heat and add diced bacon. Cook down until bacon is completely cooked through, then place cooked bacon on a plate with a paper towel and leave 2-3 tablespoons of bacon fat in the pan.
  2. Then add your diced onion to the hot pan and cook down until translucent.
  3. Next add your apple and mix with onion and cover to let cook for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Then add your balsamic vinegar and water and a bit of salt and thoroughly mix together until the balsamic vinegar is completely incorporated in.
  5. While your chutney is finishing cooking, mix your burger ingredients together in a bowl.
  6. Make 4 burger patties and place burgers in a skillet under medium heat with 1-2 tablespoons of your choice of fat.
  7. Cook on both sides for about 5-8 minutes or until cooked to preference.
  8. Place chutney on top of burgers and consume!!
