Elk Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

Dinner Tonight: Elk Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

To start this Morning off I'm preparing a Scrambled Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy
Life Whole Grain Bread. I also made my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside So after Breakfast I went to the local Kroger, needed a few items and picked up a few items for Mom. Then picked up a friend of mine and we went to pick up some computer parts for my computer. Purchased a new set of speakers for the computer and some Ram Chips. Love this store we call it "Nerdvana"! Incredible Computer Store. For Dinner tonight its an Elk Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I had purchased the Elk Burgers from SayersBrook Bison Ranch and loved them! They are a nice
alternative to my Buffalo Burgers. 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 my Buffalo Burgers. I first preheated the oven at 400 degrees. I
grabbed a Cast Iron 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 2 minutes and flipped it over and continued to cook it another 2 minutes Then finished cooking it in the oven for about 5 minutes, to a beautiful medium rare. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar to the top. It cooked up beautifully, just as Buffalo does. The Elk is juicy and very flavorful. It tasted somewhat like Buffalo but with a slightly different taste, good taste though! It makes one great Burger! I'll have to more of the Elk Burgers and Chopped Bison Steak, I'm out of both.

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 Breyer's Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

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.

Now it’s easy to eat healthy. Just order online. We Ship Organic Grass Fed Meat Throughout the USA. We deliver to your door.

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.
