Who says burgers can't be healthy? This lean bison burger recipe will have your taste buds doing a happy dance. 

Bison is leaner than beef and loaded with protein, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to cut down on their fat intake while still enjoying a juicy burger. These patties are seasoned with Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and a few common spices for a simple yet flavorful taste.

And you can say goodbye to the carb-heavy, grease-laden burger buns you’ve always known. Using lettuce as a bun adds a light and refreshing quality to this summer staple.

Feel free to mix it up and try different spice blends coupled with different toppings. This is one burger recipe you won’t have to regret!
