Shopping to Slim Your Waist and Wallet - June 9

Perhaps you've been hearing about ground buffalo. It's a great lean meat option for those watching their waist line. Did you know buffalo has nearly 1/4 the fat of chicken breast? Doctors will often recommend buffalo to women because of its high iron content.

Market Street has ground buffalo on sale this week for only $2.97/lb. Not sure how to use ground buffalo? Check out this fantastic Bleu Buffalo Burger recipe. Fire up the grill, summer is here!


Bleu Buffalo Burgers Ingredients:


2 pounds ground buffalo
2 teaspoons salt
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
8 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
8 leaves Bibb lettuce
1/2 red onion, cut in 1/2-inch slices
8 slices tomato

Directions:

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. You can also use a grill pan or George Foreman type grill.

Season the ground buffalo with salt and pepper and shape into 8 balls. Press a well in each ball with your thumb pressing halfway into each ball; place a tablespoon of blue cheese into the hole and seal the meat around the cheese. Press each ball into a patty shape.

Cook the burgers on the preheated grill until cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 4 to 6 minutes per side for well done. The center of the patty should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).  Place a burger patty onto each bun bottom, then place a lettuce leaf, onion rings, and tomato slice onto each sandwich. Top with the remaining buns to serve.
 
Have a great buffalo recipe? We'd love to see it.
