Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Granny Smith apple
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper or cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds uncooked ground bison or lean ground beef
  • 6 slices Texas toast or 3/4-inch-thick slices rustic Italian bread
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Red-tipped leaf lettuce
  • Cantaloupe and Strawberry Relish (recipe follows)

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, cook apple, celery and onion in hot oil over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture is tender. Remove from heat; let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apple mixture, ketchup, Jamaican jerk seasoning, salt and black pepper. Add bison; mix well. Shape mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.

(For a gas grill: Preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the well-oiled rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)
  4. Place toast on hot grill during the last 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned and toasted on both sides. Brush slices on both sides with melted butter.
  5. Place Texas toast slices on 6 dinner plates. Top with leaf lettuce, burgers and some of the Cantaloupe and Strawberry Relish. Makes 6 burgers.
