This is a really easy recipe that adds a new twist to your typical venison burger meat!
1 1/2 lbs ground venison
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup manzanilla olives, chopped or sliced
1/4 cup black olives, chopped or sliced
1/2 cup feta cheese
1 Egg (optional)
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
4 sturdy burger buns or Kaiser rolls
4 large lettuce leaves
4 slices onion
8 strips of bacon
4 slices tomato
Combine ground venison with all burger ingredients and mix well (If the meat is really lean and has a hard time forming up, then either add an egg or additional fatty beef burger meat to the mixture). Anyway, form into 4 patties about 3/4-inch thick. Oil and butter a pan (preferably a circular pan) over medium heat. Once pan is hot, place the patties onto the pan and cook on each side about 4-5 minutes per side. While this is going on prepare and cook 8 slices of bacon. Then, place your burgers in buns with lettuce, tomato, onion, bacon and your choice of condiments!
