Noble Premium Bison Hash Cakes (GF)

This recipe will razzle dazzle your friends and family and become your new brunch favourite. To save time, braise the bison, bake the potato and roast the pepper on the day before, then it’s rock and roll the day of. Recommended with eggs of your choice, or a delicious side salad. –Chef Liana Robberecht
