Fried Onion And Jalapeño Bison Burger Recipe

In addition to being home to a rapidly growing restaurant scene, Nashville is host to some pretty great burgers too. In my four years in the city as a college undergrad, I hit up local spots Pharmacy Burger Parlor and Burger Up almost weekly. Though difficult to pick, this bison burger from Burger Up is one of my all-time favorite patties. Health nuts even get to justify that you're eating "lean meat." We'll look past the fried onions and jalapeños, obviously. George Embiricos

"This burger has been on the menu since just about opening day and is appreciated by guests looking for the enjoyment of a regular burger, but wanting a little something out of the ordinary," says general manager Brandon Ingle. "The lure of fried jalapeños certainly appeals to "heat"-seeking guests. The bison is lean and rich, and combines well with the spice from the jalapeños and sweetness of the honey-dijon spread."
