TIP OF THE DAY: July 4th Burgers

Celebrate your independence on July 4th by grilling ground meat other than beef. We’re not talking turkey burgers, but:

  • Bison (buffalo) burgers (see the difference between bison and buffalo)
  • Elk burgers
  • Lamb burgers
  • Ostrich burgers
  • Venison burgers
  • They may not be familiar between-the-bun choices, but they’re terrific and also healthier than beef—lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. (In fact, we prefer them to beef burgers.)

    Check with your butcher, or consider a sampler pack from Blackwing Quality Meats, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week and North America’s leading producer of certified organic meats.

    A seven-pound sampler of tender, delicious “alternative” ground meats includes all of the varieties above plus Piedmontese beef, a uniquely lean and tender heirloom cattle breed that originated 25,000 years ago in the foothills of the Italian Alps.

  • Check out the sampler at (search for “ground sampler”).
  • Want to stick with beef? Snazz it up with our 35+ burger recipes: more than a month’s worth of different ways to serve a burger.
