More specifically it was a ricotta-elk burger and actually it was lunch. Whatever. The burgers lasted all of 5 minutes and that’s just because Lilly eats like a tortoise. They were just too good! The recipe was simple, just 1 pound ground elk, about 1/2 cup ricotta and a good dose of Montreal Steak Seasoning. I didn’t want to add too much to the burger because I wanted the elk to be the star and based on the fact that Lilly ate it, I’d have to say it was a success.
Lilly was not willing to share with her vulture-like parents. Poor Odin was sleeping while these masterpieces were being annihilated. Better luck next time, boy!
For our Sunday football feast we made ground elk tacos which were also delicious but the taco seasonings disguised the elk flavor too much. I’ll stick to using ground goose for tacos in the future.
