Venison Burgers

Recipe Adapted from:


1/3 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
8 hamburger buns, split
8 slices Pepper Jack cheese


In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice, mustard and lime peel; cover and refrigerate until serving.
In a bowl, combine the onions, yogurt, jalapeno, salt and pepper. Crumble meat over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight patties. Pan-fry, grill or broil until meat is no longer pink. Serve on buns; top with cheese and mayonnaise mixture.

Notes & Tips:
We are so blessed to get ground venison from our friends Kris & John. I usually use the deer meat for chili or sloppy joes (or sloppy does in this case), but we wanted burgers and had no beef. I liked the mayo that this recipe makes and the deer with little bits of jalapenos was great. They were not spicy since I took all the seeds out of the pepper. Overall a great weeknight meal.
