Fiesta Venison Burger

Ingredients

  • Ground venison
  • Fresh ground parsley
  • Spicy mustard to taste
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oregano
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup Pico de Gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Italian bread crumbs for texture

For this recipe, just combine all of the above ingredients, except the guacamole, in a mixing bowl and blend with your hands until even. Add the spices to your taste based on preference. Once even, round into patties and cook until your desired temperature.

Before eating, place a nice dollop of guacamole on top and serve.

Beer Bottle Jalapeño Venison Burger

Ingredients

  • Ground venison
  • 1 egg
  • Sriracha sauce to taste
  • Salt and pepper
  • A healthy pour of beer
  • Bread crumbs for texture
  • Jalapeños
  • Cheese slices

For this recipe, combine all of the above ingredients in a mixing bowl, except the jalapeños and cheese slices. When mixed evenly, use the same bottle of beer that you used to pour into the mixture and hollow out a center piece of each burger by pushing the bottle down in the middle.

When each burger has a circled-out middle section, fill them with sliced jalapeños. Just before the burgers are done cooking to your desired temperature, cover with cheese to keep the jalapeños in place.
