Bacon Bison Burger - Recipe

     This bacon bison burger says summer is here in full force.  When days are hot and humid I want to cook outside on my Big Green Egg!  Bison is a wonderful meat with a richer flavor than beef.  It also has less fat and less calories than beef.  I wanted to improve the texture of the burger though.  So I got to thinking.  When I was little, my grandmother used to add something to improve the texture of meatloaf - like bread crumbs.  Now I use oatmeal in my meatloaf, but I don't want to add oatmeal to the bison.  That seemed like overkill.  Psyllium husk popped into my head, because it is so fine in texture.  Yet it is so soft when exposed to liquid.  I tried 1 tablespoon for 1 lb bison and the results were better than I dreamed!  Tender, Tender, Tender all the way!  I served it with grilled cauliflower on the side.
