Just don’t overload the burger, let the flavor of the ground Buffalo meat shine through. You’ll be pleased you did.

Pull out your package of Bison patties, place on a plate and salt both sides, then let rest for about 20 minutes. Immediately before you cook them, roll each patty into a loose ball.
Warm up an 8-inch frying pan, use your animal fat or oil of choice (we used lard) to grease the pan, and set it to medium-high on your burner. If you’re lucky enough to have a flat-top grill, you may certainly use that.
NOTE: The trick to the smash burger is to form your patties into a ball. Place the ball of ground bison in the center of the hot pan and press down with your spatula. This gives it an uneven edge that will get nice and crispy!
Sear your bison patties until you see the brown from the bottom starting to creep through to the other side. Flip them and add your cheese at this point. Cook for about 30 seconds or so, then you can put it directly on your bun with toppings and enjoy.
Because these patties are only about 4-5 ounces, once pressed they cook relatively quickly.
