Deer Burgers

Ground deer meat can be very dry and has a strong wild taste. To add moisture and flavor to the ground meat I like to add raw minced bacon. This recipe is one of my husband’s favorite way to enjoy a deer burger. We love a bit of heat so I add hot pepper flakes to this; these can be omitted if you do not like spicy burgers. These are small burger patties so if you like a hefty burger, use two patties for one burger.

12 ounces ground venison
4 ounces bacon, minced
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
4 GF hamburger buns

Mix together the ground venison, minced bacon, onion, horseradish, mustard, garlic powder and hot pepper flakes well; shape into four patties.
Pan fry or grill until cooked through place on buns and top with your favorite toppings (A meat thermometer should read 160 degrees when inserted in the middle of the patty.)

NOTE: Depending on what type of bacon you are using, the addition of the bacon may keep the meat pink, it might not look cooked but if it reads 160 degrees, it is cooked!
