It may be a mouthful but you'll be happy to fill your mouth with this burger. This was an experiment that ended up in my husband's top 2 meals - and those are tough to earn. For burger toppings, the best combination I found was using mayo and Dijon mustard with lettuce and tomatoes.

  • Mix venison, chipotle peppers, blue cheese, and garlic in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 6 equal parts and shape into patties.

  • Grill on the preheated grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into the center registers 160 degrees F, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and banana peppers until onions are lightly golden, about 7 minutes. Top burgers with the onion mixture; serve with hamburger buns.

mmm flavorful moist and very spicy! I did add a bit of extra adobo sauce to the burger mix and instead of banana peppers I used some canned mixed hot peppers to the onion mix. I wasn't convinced the spicy and blue cheese would be a hit but it definitely was great. We cooked these a little rare and I didn't use quite as much blue cheese. Oh and made them into 8 patties - they would have been huge otherwise. Read More

We fell in love with these burgers at first bite!. I used a combination of ground bison and ground mushrooms with an egg white to bind. Added the chipotle and blue cheese plus a bit steak seasoning and mesquite seasoning; perfect! Served some with blue cheese dressing and others with a spicy bbq and we loved them both ways. Read More
