Bannock bison burger is one of our all time favourite burger! The richness of the bannock is complemented by the umami of the bison, caramelized onions and Saskatoon berry and maple BBQ sauce. The crunchy pickled carrots balance the richness.
Serve the bannock with a side salad of spinach, caramelized onions and pickled carrots.
