The Great Plains Burger delivers deep corn essence in two ways—one is right in the patty with corn chips crumbled into bison meat, and the second is with a sweet, creamy fresh-corn mayo that brightens up the whole burger.
1 ear shucked corn
1 small red onion, cut into 3/4-inch slices
2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
3/8 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 1/2 ounces corn chips (such as Fritos)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound lean ground bison
4 (1 1/2-ounce) onion rolls, toasted
How to Make It
Preheat grill to high heat.
Place corn and onion on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 9 minutes or until charred, turning corn occasionally and turning onion once. Cut kernels from ears of corn. Combine corn, mayonnaise, mustard seeds, vinegar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a mini food processor; process until smooth.
Combine onion and adobo sauce.
Place chips in a food processor; pulse 15 times or until coarsely chopped. Combine chips, 1/4 teaspoon salt, sage, garlic powder, pepper, and bison; mix well. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, gently shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Press a nickel-sized indentation in center of each patty. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes. Carefully turn patties; grill 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun. Spread 1 tablespoon corn mixture over each patty. Top with onion mixture and top halves of buns.
