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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to high heat.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Combine onion and adobo sauce.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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.

Very tasty!! Enjoyed the sage and Fritos in the burger, sweetness of the corn and spiciness of the adobo covered onions. Used venison instead of bison, as that is what I had on hand. Nice change of pace to the regular old burger

My husband declared this the best burger he had ever eaten. This was delicious and fairly quick for a complex burger.

I thought these were just ok. I didn't have mustard seeds so substituted some whole grain mustard. I admit I overcooked the meat a bit, bison is so lean and there seemed to be a dryness about the whole thing.
