Fresh Local Garlic and Blue Cheese Bison Burgers

There's nothing quite like the pungent taste of fresh, local garlic. Our new neighbour brought us some a few weeks ago. This stuff can go a pretty long way given it's strength. You could use much less than called for and still get an intense overall flavour in any dish. It's also a lot juicier than the regular garlic you'd buy at a supermarket. This time of year, local garlic is pretty easy to find. In fact, we were in the Byward Market a few days ago and most of the stalls had a ton of braided garlic (for insanely hight tourist prices mind you – $30 for 16 bulbs or so – a little too insane for me). But if you do come across some for a decent price, I highly recommend picking up a few bulbs.

We stuffed some lovely bison meat with one clove and some gorgonzola and topped it all with arugula. Fresh green beans on the side and voilà! So yummy!
