Venison Burgers

venison-burgerThis past Christmas, my parents sent Kevin & I home with a grocery bag full of venison burger and bison sausage. We gobbled up the bison sausage very quickly and are now on to the venison. I have been trying to think of what to make, whether it be chili, pizza, meatballs, etc. Considering the warm temperatures here lately, I decided on burgers.

These venison burgers tasted fantastic on the homemade buns! For those of you that don’t know much about venison, it is a very lean meat that is lower in fat and cholesterol when compared to beef or pork. Since venison is so lean, when formed into a burger, it requires the addition of some sort of fat to hold it together, which is why there is an egg in this recipe.

I can’t say much about this burger, except that it was absolutely delish and that I savored every bite!

Venison Burger Meat

Makes 6 patties


20 oz. ground venison

½ c. panko bread crumbs

1/3 c. onion, minced

1 large egg

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 ½ tablespoon, ketchup

1 tablespoon yellow mustard, prepared

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

½ teaspoon paprika


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix together with hands until all ingredients are thoroughly combined and evenly distributed.

Pat meat into the bottom of the bowl. Score into 6 pieces. Form each piece into a ball then pat into patties about 1/2” thick since they will shrink up a bit once they are cooked.

Refrigerate patties until ready to grill.

Cook patties on a hot grill until desired doneness. Serve on a homemade bun with desired toppings.
