Technically, these are called bison wieners but since I think the word wiener is strange to say … or maybe I am just immature that way and find it hard not to giggle when saying it … I am calling them sausage. Whatever you call them, just know that bison is delicious, lower in fat and higher in protein than beef. Bison also happens to be nutrient dense as a single serving provides good amounts of iron, zinc and the antioxidant selenium. I picked these up at the Lone Star Farmers Market from the folks at Hill Country Bison and loved the simplicity and ease of using them for a quick week night dinner in this Zucchini, Carrot, & Bison Sausage Sauté. Fresh chopped zucchini twirling with carrots, onions and cilantro and of course the star of the show –– grass-fed bison sausage or um, wieners. Bison sausage can be found at a lot of local farmers markets and often times in grocery stores but if you are unable to get your hands on some try another lean sausage of your choice with this sauté, get cookin’ and try not to giggle.
