  • 20 oz (600 gr) ground bison
  • 1 tbsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 4 burger buns

Caramelized onions

  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • 4 tbsp blue cheese crumbles
  • pickles
  • lettuce
  • sliced tomatoes
  • mayonnaise
  • mustard
  • ketchup


  1. In a bowl combine bison, onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix well, if mixture appears too dry, add some cold water. Separate into 4 even parts. Form burger patties.
  2. Saute onions in olive oil over medium heat until softened. Add balsamic vinegar and stir. Cook for one more minute, then remove from heat.
  3. Preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. Make sure grill is clean. Grill burgers for 2-3 minutes per side, depending on desired doneness.(Grilling time depends on the kind of grill used, size of burger patties, climate).
  4. Lightly toast burger buns. Spread mayonnaise, ketchup or mustard if desired.
  5. Place bison burger patties on buns, over lettuce (mixed greens). Add blue cheese crumbles, top with onions. Top with top part of the bun.
  6. Serve with french fries or a side salad. Garnish with pickles.

Recipe Notes

!Optional: You can place blue cheese over bison patties, one minute before they are done grilling. This will make the cheese melt, but it may also fall between the grill rims.
!You can find bison meat at supermarkets, but local farmers markets offer a better quality meat.
