Elk Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

Dinner Tonight: Elk Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

No Breakfast or even Green Tea this morning! I've been fasting since 10:00 last night. I had to be at
my Family Doctor this morning for my 4 month check up for sugar, cholesterol, etc. I'll have the results in about 5 days they say. Hopefully I'll get a good report on all. Next month I go in for my yearly scans for Cancer and 6 month Physical check up at my Oncologist and Dermatologist. Still nervous on the Cancer checks even after 12 years Cancer Free, always brings back a lot of bad memories. Rainy day out today so not a whole lot going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared a new favorite, Elk Burger! For Dinner tonight its an Elk Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I had been wanting to try Elk for some time. So I finally got around to ordering some from
SayersBrook Ranch online. I prepared my first Elk Burger and it was incredible! I had ordered a 1 lb. package of 3-Elk Burgers, a 1 lb. package of Ground Boar, and a 4 lb. package of Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. So the Elk Burgers weigh 5.3 oz each. And to quote the site description of the Burgers – All our burgers are 100% meat. No fillers, no additives of any kind. Gluten free. High in protein, lower in fat than beef. Low in cholesterol and saturated fat. Delicious, with no gamey taste. Super easy to BBQ. Our meat has NO antibiotics, NO hormones, NO steroids. Our animals are free range and grass-fed. The package arrived on time and very packaged with all items still froze.

To prepare them is just like preparing Buffalo Burgers. it takes about 3/4 of the time it takes to cook
Beef. I grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, heated it on medium low. As the pan was heating I seasoned the Elk Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Added the Burger to the pan and fried the Burger 5 minutes and flipped it over and continued to cook it another 4 1/2 minutes, to a beautiful medium rare. With a minute of cooing time left I added a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar to the top. It cooked up beautifully, just as Buffalo does. The Elk was juicy and very flavorful. It tasted somewhat like Buffalo but with a slightly different taste, good taste though! It makes one great Burger! I have 1 more in the freezer, I’ll have to keep a package of these handy in the freezer. Another good alternative to Beef.

To go with Elk Burger I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For dessert tonight a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

If you’ve never eaten Elk before, you are in for a treat. It is a terrific alternative to beef, choose from
our many Elk Meat varieties. Elk is much leaner than beef. It’s high in protein and low in fat and cholesterol.
Sayersbrook meats come from grass-fed, free-range animals, without the use of any chemicals or additives or any kind. NO added hormones, NO antibiotics. ; Gourmet Dining in a Snap.

Elk is very easy to cook. But it cooks fast because it’s leaner than beef. Rule of thumb, elk takes 3/4 of the time to cook than beef.
