Don’t Flinch … Try These Great Yogurt Venison Burgers

BurgerWith the Memorial Day weekend upon us, more grills will be fired up than usual as everyone heads out for a few days of fun, maybe some fishing or target shooting, and burgers!

This venison recipe for Yogurt Venison Burgers offers a different take on the standard grilled venison burger. It comes from Deer & Deer Hunting reader Rich Decembrino of Pennsylvania. Sounds great!

Venison Recipes1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
1/3 cup chopped green onions
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds ground venison

In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice, mustard and lime peel. Refrigerate until burgers are ready.
In a separate bowl, combine the onions, yogurt, jalapeno, salt, pepper and ground venison. Form into 8 patties with a consistent thickness so that they cook evenly. Grill over medium heat, turning once until cooked to medium. Do not cut or poke holes in burgers while cooking to ensure that they stay moist.

Top with cheese of choice if desired. Serve on toasted hamburger buns with mayonnaise spread. Enjoy!
