Cook the Book: Buffalo Burgers with Pepper Jack Cheese

Book CoverThis 4th of July, why not grill burgers made from America's original red meat, buffalo? Available in most butcher shops and many high-end supermarkets, buffalo is lower in fat than beef, and has less cholesterol than chicken breasts. In addition, bison are natural prairie grazers, raised without growth hormones or stimulants. The tender, juicy meat, slightly gamey in flavor, also makes excellent steaks, roasts, and even sausages.

Today's Cook the Book recipe, excerpted from Grill Every Day, is for Buffalo Burgers with Pepper Jack Cheese, but you can substitute any cheese or other topping you like. Serve with buttery grilled corn on the cob and plenty of napkins.
