A favorite recipe. You can also substitute beef, deer or other game meat if you do not have elk available. Let me know how you like them.
1/2 C – diced onion
1 Tbsp – vegetable oil
1 – egg, whole large, beaten
1 tsp – dried thyme
1 tsp – dried rosemary
2 tsp – brown sugar
1/2 tsp – salt
1/4 tsp – pepper
2 tsp – Worcestershire
4 oz – crumbled blue cheese (optional)
2 pounds – ground elk (or other red meat)
Other items needed: Hamburger buns, mayo, mustard, catsup, lettuce, tomato, cheese and/or any of fixin’s that are your favorite on a grilled hamburger.
In large skillet, add vegetable oil. Heat over medium heat. Add onions and saute. Set them aside to cool. (we puree the onions after sauteing them and add them as below so the kids don’t notice them).
In a large mixing bowl, add the egg, thyme, rosemary, brown sugar, salt, pepper and Worcestershire. Mix thoroughly. Add mixture to ground meat and mix until well blended. After mixture is well blended, add blue cheese if desired. If you are questioning the blue cheese, TRY IT! You just might like it. If you don’t, leave it out next time.
Mold burger into bun size patties, grill until cooked through. Brown hamburger buns if desired. Serve hot with your favorite fixin’s!
