In celebration of the 4th of July, try this “Red, White, and Blue” burger…sure to be a crowd pleaser. The “red” is from sun dried tomatoes, the “blue” is blue cheese and the “white” is white tailed deer. Hopefully you have some ground venison in your freezer, but if not, you can get some from a local butcher or substitute with grass-fed beef. Recipe was developed by Cagey T.
1.5 pounds ground venison meat
1/2 cup diced sweet onion, such as vidalia, red, or shallot
1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 egg or just egg white
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (or 1 teaspoon thyme, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon parsley flakes)
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients and form into 6 hamburger patties. Grill patties until cooked through.
You can top patties with additional blue cheese and chives.
It is important to not over cook venison or it will dry out due to it’s lack of fat, which also makes it a healthy choice of meat! Serves 6.
