Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place bacon in a stainless steel bowl; add venison, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, milk, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Mix venison mixture using your hands and form into 5-ounce balls. Press balls with the back of a side dish to form patties.

  • Grill patties on the preheated grill until desired doneness is reached, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

We used the fat of the bacon instead of mixing with pork fat.

I have made these a couple times now. I use almost the whole small can of evap milk. I also use a small pkg of real bacon bits vs bacon that is called for in this recipe. I prepared with 2 lbs of venison vs 5. Def a 5 star recipe! Read More

Awesome. First time having venison and I'm a fan. I used turkey peppered bacon and used regular skim milk... only made one pound of venison so wasn't going to open a can of milk for a couple teaspoons. BTW.. the full recipe makes 20 burgers not 5.. otherwise the burgers would be a full pound each Read More

I used cream as I didn't have evaporated milk on hand and I added a bit of shredded cheese to the mixture. They turned out fantastic! Everyone went back for seconds! Read More
