Preheat your grill to 375 – 400 F degrees (180 – 205 C). Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for the pesto in a food processor. Set aside to build the burger.
Divide the meat into 4 equal portions. Using your hands, form into patties. Season generously on each side with S&P.
Grill the burgers over direct high heat, for approximately 3-4 minutes per side; bison is leaner than beef so don’t overcook! Once flipped, top with cheese and allow to cool slightly before building.
To build the burgers, spread a layer of pesto on the bottom bun. Top with the bison patty, sliced onion, tomatoes and the top bun spread with another layer of the pesto. Skewer with something fun like beer battered onion rings or fiddle heads if you can find some!
