Ground Buffalo Meat --any ideas?

I bought some organic bison/buffalo meat (ground) and now I need some ideas on how to cook it. I was thinking meatballs or burgers. Any other suggestions?

Hmm...that's weird, it didn't ask for registration the first time, but now it does.
Here is the recipe again, but not via a newspaper...
FYI, the recipe first appeared in the Chicago Tribune, and then was reprinted widely--in the San Jose Mercury News, the Houston Chroncicle, was adapted by a vegan site, etc....
I buy both pre-formed patties and the ground meat from a local bison farm. We've never had burgers at home until we discovered bison burgers. REALLY good!
I make a version of shepherd's with the ground bison. I brown the bison with onion and garlic until it is about half way done. Then I add good chicken stock and let it simmer down while the bison finishes cooking. Then I add a little salt and thicken the stock with a little corn starch. Bison is so wonderfully lean all by itself and can get dry, so I like to create this "gravy" for it to sit in to keep it moist.
To make the pie I layer the bison, some corn (fresh if in season, otherwise I resort to Niblets), and then mashed potatoes.
Big time comfort food!
