  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 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!

Yes you are correct. 5lbs would make 20 burgers it won't let me edit that number. Nice catch

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 tea...
