Paul's Wild Boar Burgers (serves 2)


When it comes to grilling, my husband has his technique down to a science--the exact timing of cooking this burger...unlike me I just use my eyeballs and a stick to give it a few pokes at the meat to judge when the food is done! Try either method you prefer to cook the burgers and they will turn out tasty especially when you have quality meat! You can put anything on your burgers. This time I used ketchup, tomato slices, lettuce, and caramelized onion. I like the sweet taste of the cooked onion.

This morning was a beautiful warm Spring day. My husband and I decided to go for a long morning walk in Boston. We stopped into Savenor's market located in Beacon Hill for a quick look. There were a variety of animal meats to try. We passed on the rattlesnake and alligator meat this time and decided to try the wild boar patties instead. We had purchased wild boar meat from them in the past and it was very good.

Ingredients:

2 wild boar patties (about 1/4 lb each), sprinkle salt and pepper if interested
2 rolls (I used brioche sandwich rolls), cut in half
Add any fixing you prefer 

Method:

1) Preheat the grill.
2) Once the grill is heated to 350 degrees, add the patties.
3) Grill with cover on for 2 1/2 minutes. Grill each side of the patties twice (for total of 10 minutes).
4)) After 5 minutes add the halved rolls to grill.
5) On the last flip add the cheese slices to the patties.


Caramelized Onion

Saute thinly sliced onion in olive oil over medium high heat for about 5 minutes or until the onion is wilted.
