*Why Big Sky?
Before we dive into the recipes, you might be wondering, “Why Big Sky Kitchen?” Well, imagine a place where the sky stretches as far as the eye can see, where the mountains rise like giants, and where the food is as hearty as the people who call it home. That’s Big Sky country for you! And our kitchen? It’s the gateway to this culinary paradise.
Montana Bison Burgers
– 1 lb ground bison (because regular beef is so last season)
– 1/2 cup diced onions (for that extra zing)
– 1 tsp garlic powder (to keep the vampires away)
– Salt and pepper (to taste, because life’s too short for bland food)
– 4 hamburger buns (or lettuce wraps if you’re feeling adventurous)
1. Mix the ground bison, onions, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Don’t be shy; get your hands in there and give it a good squish.
2. Shape the mixture into patties. Pro tip: make them slightly larger than your bun – because who wants a burger that’s all bun and no fun?
3. Grill the patties to your desired level of doneness. Medium-rare is our jam.
4. Serve on toasted buns with all your favorite fixings. Go wild!
Rocky Mountain Rainbow Trout
– 2 fresh rainbow trout fillets (hook, line, and sinker)
– 2 tbsp butter (because everything is better with butter)
– 1 lemon (sliced into rings)
– Salt and pepper (seasoning is your paintbrush)
1. Preheat your grill or oven to 350°F (175°C). Think of it as the backstage pass to flavor town.
2. Place each trout fillet on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to wrap them up like a fishy burrito.
3. Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Lay lemon slices on top and dot with butter.
4. Fold up the foil to create a sealed packet, ensuring no steam escapes.
5. Grill or bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Feel free to add a dash of adventure.
Big Sky Huckleberry Pie
– 2 cups fresh huckleberries (wild and free)
– 3/4 cup granulated sugar (sweet, like a Montana sunset)

– 1 tsp lemon juice (for a zesty twist)
– 1 package of your favorite pie crust (or make your own if you’re feeling like a baking superhero)
1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). It’s time to get this berry show on the road.
2. In a mixing bowl, gently combine the huckleberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Think of it as berry chemistry.
3. Line your pie dish with one of the pie crusts.
4. Pour in the berry mixture, spreading the adventure evenly.
5. Top with the second pie crust, seal the edges and give it your own artistic flair with a pie crust design.
6. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling. Now that’s what we call a pie-venture!
