This is another simple but delicious wild game burger recipe that I was inspired to grill up using some of my garden grown jalapenos and onions. The burger seasonings used are similar to the seasonings I use in all of our taco and enchilada recipes so they have a slight ‘mexican’ flavor to them. Top them off with a slice of Monterey Jack cheese, fresh guacamole, jalapenos and crisp onion and you might just find yourself wanting seconds.

I also wanted to share with all of you the Weston Single Burger Press. It’s an affordable and adjustable non-stick burger press that features markings on the handle to ensure precise patty weight so that you can make the PERFECT quarter pound (4 oz) burgers.

Makes 4 quarter pound burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground antelope burger
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1-2 jalapenos sliced (optional)
  • 4 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns

Guacamole

  • 2 avocados, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Add chopped avocados to a bowl and mash with a fork until semi-smooth. Add salt and garlic powder and mix together. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator until ready.

Burger Directions

In a large bowl add antelope burger, breadcrumbs, 1 egg, garlic powder, cumin powder and chili powder. Using your hands, gently mix together. Add shredded cheese and continue to mix with your hands until cheese is evenly distributed. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Remove the meat from the refrigerator. Now to get a perfect quarter pound burger, I divided the meat equally into 4 baseball sized balls and used my Weston Burger Press. I’m being totally honest when I say that I love this gadget for making the perfect sized patties. It makes a world of difference when you want to ensure that your burgers stay together and cook evenly.

After you are done forming your burger patties, place them on a hot and well seasoned grill. Grill for about 4-5 minutes then rotate and grill for another 4-5 minutes. Turn burgers and continue to cook on the other side until done. Top each one with a slice of Monterey Jack cheese and jalapenos.

Remove burgers from grill and garnish with guacamole and sliced onion. ~Enjoy!
