Dinner Tonight: Wild Ground Boar Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries
In the low 50's this morning, with a passing shower! For Breakfast I heated up the leftover Diced
Well I finally got around to trying the SayersBrook Bison Ranch Wild Ground Boar! Rummaging around the freezer last night I seen the package of Ground Boar and knew there is Wednesday's Dinner! I let the Boar thaw overnight in the fridge.
To prepare it I'll be frying it. I used a Cast Iron Skillet that I lightly sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Preheated it on medium low heat. The Ground Boar comes in a 1 lb. package. So I made 3 - 1/3 lb patties out of it. Mom and Dad wouldn't try it so I packaged up the other 2 Patties. To start I formed my Patties then seasoned the Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Thyme, a pinch of Dried Sage, and A-1 Hearty and Thick Sauce (for a topping).
Like Buffalo, you want to cook Wild Boar nice and slow and cooked not over medium. I'm cooking
To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

What's the Difference Between Wild Boar and Pig?
It comes down to diet and exercise. Farm raised pigs are fed a homogeneous diet compared to that of wild boars which will give a more complex, deeper flavor. Wild boars are far more physically active than their farm raised counterparts which will alter their muscle/fat composition. Wild Boar are not kept in enclosures as are pigs. They are free to roam and forage for their food.
