  • 3/4 pound ground bison
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 red onion, 1 tablespoon diced and the rest sliced for topping burgers
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Lettuce, any variety
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 hamburger buns
  • Desired condiments (spicy mustard is excellent with bison)


In a small mixing bowl, combine bison meat, oil, garlic, diced red onions and seasonings; mix thoroughly. Form meat into 3/4-inch-thick patties and set aside.

Before grilling, prep all toppings such as sliced tomato, onion, lettuce and avocado.

Bison meat is best served medium to medium-rare — do not overcook! Grill patties over a low flame. Melt cheese on the patties during the last minute of grilling. Serve on hamburger buns with desired condiments.
