Savory bison patties are broiled then topped with a mess of sautéed jalapeños and onions, slices of avocado, and bacon. It’s a commitment of a meal—wimpy eaters need not apply.
Game plan: If you want to grill these burgers instead of broiling them, heat a grill to medium high and grill the patties uncovered for 10 minutes. Flip the burgers, top with cheese, and grill another 10 minutes for medium rare.

Beverage pairing: Ridge Three Valleys Zinfandel, California. Sometimes wines are dismissively cast off as “hamburger wines,” meaning that they’re not fit for anything better. But a good hamburger is a complex thing, a mélange of flavors and textures that deserves a great wine. Zinfandel has all the red fruit and sappy depth to pair perfectly with a burger, but this one from Ridge has a firm and elegant structure to bring a little bit of discipline to the pairing.
