Blue Cheese Burgers
Bison meat is one of our favorite burger ingredients, and when combined with other tasty flavors like blue cheese we love creating amazing combinations like this. For our recipe we used an egg and some oats as moisture sources while keeping the patty together on the grill, then finished it off with zippy blue cheese both inside the patty itself as well as on top of a freshly toasted bun for maximum flavor!
As an extra sweet and tangy condiment, we developed this fruity blueberry relish to pair perfectly with the rich flavors of bison meat. Perfect for summer when blueberries are in season and will sure to impress guests at your next gathering!

To make these burgers, we combined ground bison with Dijon mustard, shallots, garlic cloves, Worcestershire sauce and splash of olive oil – then formed 6 patties from this mixture and added one teaspoon of blue cheese in each one for extra flair!
After making our patties, we used the grill to prepare them perfectly. However, this recipe can also be done on a stovetop.
When grilling, make sure that when flipping the burgers you only touch them when flipping them – this ensures an even cooking process and prevents overcooking which would lead to too dry and crumbly results. Also take care to avoid burning their surface too early!
Stuffed peppers make an easy, comforting, family-friendly dinner that can be prepared quickly on the stovetop before baking in the oven – they’re also an effective way of getting children and teens to consume more veggies!
These delicious stuffed peppers are packed with protein and fiber, and easy to prepare with just a few simple ingredients. Their filling includes ground bison, rice and tomato sauce topped off with shredded cheese for added texture, with fresh parsley garnish as an optional final touch.
Mini bell peppers are ideal for stuffing, as they cook faster than their larger counterparts. Regular-sized peppers may still be used if desired; just increase their cooking time accordingly.
To prepare the filling, begin by removing seeds and membranes from peppers. Cut each one in half lengthwise from stem to base before roasting both halves until tender-crisp.
While your peppers are cooling, combine ground bison, grated cauliflower, rotel, seasonings and half of the cheese into a meat mixture and stuff each pepper with it before topping with remaining cheese for garnish.
Serve these peppers hot, or refrigerate until ready to reheat later on.
Make and store the filling ahead of time in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days; for best results reheat leftovers in a 350 degF-oven until warm and the cheese has melted.
To avoid sogginess in your peppers, don’t overbake them; and, if using fresh peppers, add water to the bottom of your baking dish before starting so as to add moisture while baking and help ensure they won’t become dry during their journey to you!

Pasta with Parmesan Cheese
Grated Parmesan cheese is an integral part of Italian cuisine, yet knowing when and how much to add can be tricky. Too much cheese could overwhelm the flavors in your dish while too little can leave it tasting bland.
Italians tend not to add more than one or two teaspoons of cheese per serving of pasta, as too much cheese may overshadow other elements in the dish such as meat, sauce and vegetables.
This recipe calls for freshly grated Parmesan cheese, which offers superior flavor over pre-grated varieties that tend to be dry and grainy. Furthermore, freshly grated Parmesan can also save families money; which makes this an especially helpful budget friendly solution.
Use any pasta you desire for this dish; I suggest linguine, fettuccine or spaghetti as they cook more quickly than others. Be sure to follow the directions on the box when boiling your chosen variety!
Once the pasta is done cooking, drain and transfer it to a large bowl. Gently incorporate butter, garlic and olive oil (photos 1&3) before tossing to combine; you may want to splash in some pasta water as you toss for added creaminess.
Once the pasta has been mixed with sauce, add Parmesan cheese. Top off your dish with fresh chopped parsley for a garnish, and you have an irresistibly flavorful and nutritious dinner for everyone in one pot! It’s great that families can share one meal that everyone will love!
