Bison Burgers with Herbed Spread

"Ground bison is lean and tender with a flavor that is comparable to beef. Serve topped with an herbed spread, tomato and grilled zucchini for a lighter take on the typical burger."

Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 12 minutes Serves: 4


1/4 cup light mayonnaise

1/4 cup plain low-fat Greek-style yogurt

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

3/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Basil, Mediterranean, divided

3/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Marjoram, divided

1 pound ground bison

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Garlic Powder, California

1/2 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Sicilian Sea Salt

1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Black Pepper, Coarse Ground

1 small zucchini, halved crosswise and sliced thinly lengthwise

1 teaspoon olive oil

4 whole grain hamburger rolls

1 beefsteak tomato, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

Mix mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon peel and ¼ teaspoon each of the basil and marjoram in small bowl until well blended. Cover. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Mix ground bison, egg, garlic powder, sea salt, pepper and remaining ½ teaspoon each basil and marjoram in large bowl until well blended. Shape into 4 patties. Brush zucchini slices with oil.

Grill patties over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until burgers are cooked through (internal temperature of 160°F). Grill zucchini slices 1 to 2 minutes per side or until tender.

Serve burgers on rolls topped with tomato, zucchini and herbed spread.
