Ingredients

  • 6 pieces bacon
  • 1 lb grass-fed bison (or you can substitute beef)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 3 cups mushrooms - diced
  • 4 small peppers - sweet mini peppers, banana peppers, etc.
  • 4 leaves of crisp green lettuce - such as romaine

Instructions

  • In a large pan over medium heat, add bacon to cook. Cook until almost crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer some bacon grease to a separate medium sized pan to use to sauté mushrooms and peppers with. Leave 1 tbsp in pan for cooking burgers.
  • While bacon is cooking, prepare the burgers. In a bowl, mix salt, pepper, chipotle powder and ground bison with your hands until fully incorporated. Form into four evenly sized patties.
  • In the large pan over medium heat, add in burgers to cook. Separately, in the medium sized pan over medium heat, add mushrooms and peppers to sauté, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook burgers about 4 minutes per side for medium burgers and then remove from heat. Sauté mushrooms and peppers until peppers have browned some and the mushrooms have cooked down quite a bit and then turn heat down to simmer.
  • Finally, cook eggs in a small pan to your desired state.
  • Plate your bison burgers - first the lettuce leaf, then burger, then bacon, then egg, then mushrooms and peppers.
