For the sliders:

  • 20 oz (600 gr) ground bison
  • 1/2 tbsp salt or to taste
  • ½ tbsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ medium onion chopped — (I used purple onion)

For serving:

  • 10 slider buns
  • 5 slices cheese — , cut in half
  • 1 small onion — , sliced and sautéed in olive oil for a few minutes
  • lettuce leaves
  • mayonnaise
  • ketchup
  • Heinz® Yellow Mustard


  1. In a bowl combine bison, onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well, if mixture appears too dry, add some cold water. Form slider patties using a measuring tablespoon, about 4 Tbsp for each patty. Place on parchment paper. (You can refrigerate patties wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 2 days).
  2. In a small skillet, sautee onions in 1 tbsp olive oil, until soft.
  3. Preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. Make sure grill is clean. Grill burgers for 1-2 minutes per side, depending on desired doneness.(Grilling time depends on the kind of grill used, size of burger patties, climate). Alternatively cook on a griddle.
  4. Add cheese on top of each mini burger, right after you remove them form the grill, so it can melt.
  5. Lightly toast slider buns and assemble the burgers, adding lettuce, sautéed onion, mustard, ketchup and mayo and any additional topping of your choice.
