  • 2 lbs. bison burger
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic pressed
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. liquid smoke
  • 1 T. bacon grease (or olive oil)
  • 1 slice white bread (torn in small chunks)
  • 1 egg


  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, using your hands. Make sure the ingredients are thoroughly combined
  • Divide the meat in half, then in fourths, and finally into nine equally-sized portions. You should have enough for nine 4 oz patties.
  • Form the meat into patties using your hand, or a hamburger press. Place wax paper between the patties and freeze until ready to eat. 
  • Cook for approximately five minutes per side (either in a frying pan or on the grill). 
  • Do not press down on the burgers as they cook, this releases all the juices, resulting in a dry burger. 
  • Top with your favorite hamburger fixings and serve.


Nutrition info is for one burger patty without the bun or fixings.
  • You'll notice in the picture that I served my burger with bacon, but turkey bacon is another great option.
  • To further cut down on calories, leave the mayo off and replace it with mustard instead.
  • My favorite way of cutting down on calories and carbs is to use Thomas' Lite English muffins instead of hamburger buns. They're not as "bready" as hamburger buns and have fewer calories/carbs, but you still get to have bread, yay!
  • If you're really watching your carbs, serve the burger wrapped in butter lettuce. The soft leaves are the perfect shape and size for burgers.
