Bison Cheese burger...and cilantro salsa verde kitchen! kitchen!

Bison cheese burger blanketed with sauteed mushrooms, onions,
tomatoes, and cilantro salsa verde.
It's sure to hit the spot and you'll be wanting for more!

2 pkgs. of ground bison (Stop & Shop and Shoprite has this wondrous lean meat)
Season with amazing dry rub
For the ground meat:
Sautee 1 medium onion chopped; 2 roughly chopped garlic cloves in a hot pan with olive oil for about 2 minutes until the onions start to turn transparent. Let cool and set aside
After it has cooled, In a large bowl combine with the seasoned ground meat; add 1 beaten egg, mixing thoroughly without handling it too much; form a large patty about 4-5 oz. each and set aside.
In the same pan add some olive oil and carmelized a large sliced onion; add the chopped mushrooms, season with salt and black pepper stirring until the mushrooms are cooked. Add a little liquid (or white wine) if the pan starts to dry up. Set aside and put on warm.
Heat a large grill pan with olive oil and cooked the bison patty for 7-8 minutes on each side. Add a large slice of your favorite cheese on top of the burger on the last 2 minutes until the cheese starts to melt. Put  each one on a serving platter. Pour over the sauteed onions on the burgers. Add dollops of the cilantro salsa verde on top; garnish with slices of tomatoes and serve. Make sure you have an extra serving of the salsa verde on the side and watch it disappear!
