Makes 6 Hamburgers


  • 1lb ground venison burger (bacon and garlic recipe here)
  • 2 tablespoons barbeque sauce (use your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices thick dry cured or peppered bacon
  • 6 Hamburger buns


  1. In a bowl, mix together bacon and garlic venison burger with salt, pepper, barbeque sauce, a whole egg and breadcrumbs. Shape into 6 hamburger patties. Let the meat rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Cook bacon in a cast iron skillet until fully cooked. Remove and set aside on a paper towel. Remove 95% of the bacon fat from skillet.
  3. Set your oven to broil.
  4. Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter with bacon fat. Place burgers in skillet and cook for approximately 6-7 minutes or until browned. Turn and continue to cook on the other side.
  5. Remove from heat. Cut bacon in half and top each hamburger with 2 thick slices and 2 slices of cheddar cheese. Place cast iron skillet under the broiler until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven.

Place the venison hamburger on your favorite hamburger bun, add a slice of crisp white onion and pour your favorite barbeque sauce all over the top.  Squeeze together and enjoy! We served these hamburgers with oven roasted sweet potato fries.
