Chili Bacon Bison Burger with Garlic Parmesan Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Bacon makes everything better. Chili makes everything better. I was the catalyst that made them join forces for this Bison burger recipe. Imagine a juicy bison burger topped with melted cheddar cheese, smoky bacon and a big spoonful of spicy chili in between a buttery garlic toasted challah bread bun. Not sold? What if I pile a bunch of crispy parmesan, garlic and herb sweet potato fries next to it? Where are the greens, you ask? I added a cherry, almond spinach salad to the plate for a pop of color and flavor.
