How to make the Best Elk Burger?

Easy and simple recipes sometimes make for the best meals. Take any traditional elk or venison hamburger recipe and give it a quick twist by spicing up your sauce. I love heat and this Jalapeno Thousand Island sauce does it up right!



  • 1 pound ground elk or venison
  • ½ pound ground elk or venison sausage
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons A1 Steak Sauce
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper

Thousand Island Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • several dashes of Tabasco Jalapeno Sauce
  • squeeze of lemon juice


  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced onion
  • Lettuce
  • Skinny bagels

1) mix all thousand island ingredients together and let sit for 30 minutes while you cook your burgers.

2) Pre-heat the barbecue to high temperature.

3) In a large bowl, add Worcestershire sauce, A1 steak sauce, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic powder salt-n-pepper to ground elk meat and sausage. Mix all ingredients by hand and then form into ‘skinny flat’ patties. The sizes of the patties are up to you. I typically get 4/5 patties out of this recipe.

4) After forming your patties, place direct on tinfoil. Cook about 7 minutes or until brown and then flip patty. Continue cooking on other side until brown – 7 minutes.

5) Toast skinny bagels on grill.

Top burger off with tomato, onions, lettuce and a heaping tablespoon of Jalapeno Thousand Island sauce. Yum!
