Protein Shares August 29/30

In this Week's Protein Shares...

Regular Protein:

Bison Patties - Bison is from Spring Creek and is pasture raised and grass fed. Thaw completely before cooking. On the BBQ or on a skillet cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Let rest for a few minutes before serving. Throw on your favourite  burger toppings and serve with a salad!

Ground Turkey - Turkey is from Oak Island. Freely ranged or raised in a low density barn with no antibiotics or growth hormones. Ground turkey is great for lettuce wraps or mini greek meatballs. You can also stuff peppers with turkey and rice or add it to fried rice! These lettuce wraps are my favourite way to use ground turkey.

Pork Bacon - Pork is from either Spring Creek or Natural Pork. The pork is raised outdoors and is fed no antibiotics or hormones. These thicker cuts of bacon are great put into a BLT sandwich or chopped up for a casserole. Also great just fried up with some eggs or greens. Save the pork fat in a jar after cooking!

Gourmet Protein:

Bison Ribeye - Bison is from Spring Creek farm and is pasture raised/grass fed. Thaw completely before cooking, pat dry and season. Then the steak can be cooked in a frying pan in butter for 2-3 minutes per side on medium heat, or on a BBQ for 2-3 minutes per side on low heat. Be careful not to overcook because the meat is very lean and can get tough. Tent under a bowl for a few minutes before serving.

Lemon Chicken Sausage - This sausage is from Oak Island. Freely ranged without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones. You can cook this on a sheet pan in the oven with potatoes and veggies for an easy meal or grill the sausages on the BBQ. Chop up and add to a stir fry or your favourite pasta! Try this quick and easy stir fry: Chicken Sausage & Kale Stir Fry.
