Bison sausage taco.
To paraphrase the Talking Heads, "And you may find yourself with a bison sausage pack, and you may find yourself in strange cooking situation, and you may find yourself behind the edge of a large outdoor grill, and you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife, and you may ask yourself, how do I make bison sausage tacos?" Well, you might. I did, and while I make no claims to making authentic bison sausage tacos the way my Mexican grandmother did, I can tell you that if you should find yourself with a package of bison sausage, this would be an excellent way for you to use them — if you wanted to make tacos... and listen to the Talking Heads.

Bison Sausage pasta
Sausage is delicious, but it never quite makes the healthy cut because of its fat content. That is, unless you use bison sausage. Lean, tasty, and with no hormones or antibiotics, it lets you enjoy great flavor and substance without the extra fat and calories.  This pasta is super easy and also makes for great leftovers, but you can also try it using Italian sausage.

Grilled Bison Burger with Peaches and Jalapeno
While bison might not be the grilling meat at the top of everyone's list, it should be. Especially when you try it with this recipe. Bison doesn't have a gamey taste at all (despite what some think) and is in fact delicious (I was scraping up the bits of burnt meat off the grill pan). It pairs fantastically with sweet grilled peaches and gets a touch of tang and saltiness from the feta and a mild kick from the jalapeño in this recipe. The best part? Bison meat is very lean so you cut back on a lot of calories and fat without sacrificing taste — although I guess that trade off doesn't work when you eat two of them like I did (they were really good).  You can always subsitute ground beef for bison if you can't get a hold of it and still keep these flavor combinations. While I used grilled baguette, you can also use brioche buns instead.  Click here to see 7 Must-Try Burger Recipes.
