- Add 300 grams of ground Bison meat to a mixing bowl. Add a minced clove of garlic, a palmful (not quite a handful) of minced red onion, a palmful of chopped fresh parsley, palmful of rolled oats, one large egg, a generous amount of salt and pepper and 2 squirts of Dijon mustard. Mix then place in your refrigerator for at least an hour to let ingredients mingle.
- After at least an hour, remove the Bison mixture from your refrigerator and form 2 large patties.
- Add 4 thick slices of pork belly to a medium/high heat cast iron skillet (or frying pan). Season and cook for around 2 to 3 minutes per side, until each side is golden brown. Remove the pork belly to an oven pan for later.
- Add Bison patties to the pork belly skillet. Season and cook the patties approximately 3 minutes per side. Then place the patties on the pan that the pork belly resides and place in a preheated 425° oven for 6 additional minutes. Use a thermometer to ensure proper doneness.
- Add half a Spanish sliced white onion, and 4 sliced baby bella mushrooms to the skillet while the burgers finish in the oven. Add a squirt of balsamic vinegar to skillet and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Next take two whole wheat buns and butter them. Toast on low heat for 2 minutes or however well toasted you prefer.
- When the patties are completed cooking add the balsamic onion/mushroom mixture to each patty. Add 3 thin slices of Jarlsberg cheese to each patty and return to oven to melt cheese on broil for 2 minutes.
- Spread mayo on the top of each bun. Spread Dijon on the bottom of each bun. Now it is time for construction. Place 2 pieces of pork belly on the bottom of each bun. Add the patties and these amazing pork belly bison burgers with melted Jarlsberg are completed. All that is left to do is grab a beer and enjoy the burger!
