Before you skip over this recipe because it contains buffalo meat, give me one minute of your day to convince you to try this delicious, lean form of protein.

Let’s start with the flavor. If buffalo were gross at all, I would just tell you to get lean ground beef. But it tastes exactly like delicious beef, but with more protein, iron, and B12 and less fat and calories. Plus it’s usually available at your local grocery store. Try this lean and delicious meat yourself. You won’t be able to tell the difference, and you’ll be doing your body a favor.

1 teaspoon olive oil, for the grill
1 pound all-natural ground buffalo
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup Chunky Blue Cheese Dip (page 108)
4 whole wheat buns
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 red onion, sliced into thin rings
Spicy brown mustard (optional)
