Mediterranean Bison Burgers with Grilled Green Onions and Ripe Tomatoes recipe
  • 4Servings


  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. course salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 bunches green onions
  • 1 large ripe tomato, cut into 4 thick slices
  • 4 tsp. Basic Mayonnaise (see recipe at
  • Chopped fresh chives, basil, and/or thyme


  1. Preheat grill to medium (350º to 375ºF)
  2. In a small bowl, combine the parsley, coriander, cumin, salt, cinnamon, and pepper. Place the bison in a medium bowl and add the parsley-spice mixture, the egg, chopped onion, and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Mix with your hands just until combined. Shape the meat mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Use your thumb to make a slight indentation in the center of each patty.
  3. Grill the patties over direct heat for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until they register 160ºF.
  4. Toss the green onions with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and lightly season with salt and pepper. Grill the green onions, turning them once, until tender and lightly charred, about 4 minutes.
  5. Place a tomato slice on each of four serving plates and top each with a bison burger. Divide the charred green onions among the plates. Top the patties with mayonnaise, and sprinkle chopped herbs over all.
