Serves: 4

Prep time: 2 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Burger Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground venison
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 small white onion, sliced
  • ½ pound bacon, cooked
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • ½ pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • ½ cup guacamole
  • 4 hamburger buns

Secret Sauce Ingredients:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


1. Season ground venison with salt and pepper and form into four patties.

2. Sauté bell pepper, onion and mushrooms. Set aside.

3. Heat grill to medium-heat and cook patties to desired doneness. While patties are cooking, combine all secret sauce ingredients. When patties are almost ready, add cheese slices and close the grill cover for approximately ten seconds, or until cheese is melted.
