Recipe adapted from Brittany's Pantry
Grilled Venison Burger
- 1 and 1/2 lb ground venison
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 T extra virgin olive oil
- 2 T worcestershire sauce
- fresh ground black pepper and salt to taste
- Seasoning of choice (suggestions: Lawry's Seasoning Salt, Tony Chachere's, Italian Seasoning, Cumin or Chili Powder)
- Gently combine all ingredients in a large bowl with your hands. Your seasoning choice can be just about anything, whatever is available in your spice collection. Be careful when seasonings already high in salt, in which case you should decrease the amount of salt you add, possibly entirely.
- Form the meat mixture into four large patties, and grill over medium high heat about 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness and preference. Try not to flip the burgers more than once.
- Top with cheese during the last minute on the grill if desired, and add the typical burger toppings.
