  • Mix bison, Panko crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic, and pepper together by hand in a bowl; form into 4 patties. Place patties on baking sheet, cover with aluminum foil, and refrigerate until chilled, about 15 minutes.

  • Spray the patties with cooking spray and grill until hot and slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. Top each burger with a slice of cheese; continue cooking until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

  • Sandwich burgers between bun halves.

My husband and I cooked this tonight and it was so good!!! The burgers turned out juicy and tasty. We didn't cook them for 5 minutes on each side like the recipe said. We did 3 minutes on each side on 450 degree grill and they came out 140 degrees. We will definitely be making these again! Read More

We made these on the grill. Based on a review from another reviewer who reported that the burgers tasted heavily of bread and fell apart when grilled I cut the breadcrumbs to 1/3 cup. They tasted great but unfortunately also fell apart on the grill for us. I've never had this issue before when making bison burgers without bread crumbs and will probably leave them out next time.

This is my recipe... Looks like cooking time got changed somehow... not sure how but my original recipe says 3 mins per side... 5 will tend to dry them out so be careful when grilling Bison... it is very lean and should be cooked much like turkey. Take care and enjoy. ; ) Read More

I didn't have a grill so they are pan fried in a little olive oil. Added sweet and spicy BBQ sauce in place of the hot sauce and muenster cheese.... Delicious! Read More

First time cooking with bison so thankful for this great recipe. I've heard bison can get dry because it's so lean but the egg Worcestershire and breadcrumbs seemed to bind it together nicely and keep it from drying out. Made just as described except added some salt to the formed patties. The burgers were super flavorful. Turns out I like bison so look forward to making this again. Read More

I did not add Tabasco (as most people in my family don't like spicy) and I used unseasoned breadcrumbs as that is what I had. Everyone enjoyed them. They were moist and flavorful. Stayed together very well. Would definitely make again. Read More

Very tasty burger. I used 24 oz of ground bison and 7 dashes of Tabasco but will add more next time. I didn't have panko so I left it out. We didn't miss it. Will make again. Read More

I used this recipe to make bison sliders. The meat was so juicy! I had never cooked bison before I was afraid it would be hard to work with. But this was great! Can't wait to do it again! Read More
