Recipe: Cali Vibes Bison Burgers


  • 6 Bison Burger Patties
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 8 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 4 Tbsp. tomato jam
  • ½ cup sprouts
  • 1 avocado – sliced
  • 4 brioche buns


  1. Combine 1 and ½ patties and form into one large patty. Continue until you have four large patties. Season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat and add patties to the grill. Cook for about four minutes per side, or until the internal temperature is around 145 degrees F. 
  3. Remove the patties from the grill and top each with two slices of pepper jack cheese. 
  4. Spread about 1 Tbsp. tomato jam onto the bottom of each bun, then add the sprouts. Top with the burger patty, then top with sliced avocado and serve. 


  • Don’t press the patties while they’re cooking. You want to keep the juices inside the patties.
  • Bacon or onion jam can be used in place of tomato jam.
