Something new - Bison Burgers!

Enough with the chicken and beef - this week was time for something new! We picked up some ground bison at Whole Foods this week and decided to make some burgers. These were easy, healthy, and very good! One of my favorite ingredients was in stock this week, tomatillos, so I used those for a delicious accompaniment. For the side dish, I just used a basmati rice mix from Trader Joe's - just cook and serve. Not too much effort - perfect when you get home at 7:30 and still have dinner to make. I used 1 lb. of meat and made 4 burgers - enough for leftovers the next night. Here's the recipe, enjoy!
