Freshly ground antelope venison is mixed with mild chorizo and pan fried in a cast-iron skillet. For a one-of-a-kind venison burger, finish it off with a slice of Havarti cheese, caramelized sweet onions and a spicy thousand island sauce.

Yield: 5-6 burgers
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Burger Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground antelope venison burger
  • ¼ pound chorizo sausage (mild, medium or hot)
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 slices Havarti Cheese
