Lightly Seasoned Bison Burgers

This 'Seasoned' Burger goes just one step beyond our 'Just The Basics' bison burger recipe. The green onions, Worcestershire Sauce, and dry mustard compliment the taste of bison beautifully. You won't be disappointed!

Pictured is our double burger combination--almost a half pound of succulent bison burger.

Instead of making the 6 patties the recipe calls for, make 8 smaller patties. Shorten your total grill time by about 2 or 3 minutes. Nobody comes back for seconds after one of these!
2 tsp
1 tsp
1 tsp
1/4 to 1/2 tsp
2 lbs

green onions, finely chopped (1/3 cup loosely packed)
Worcestershire sauce
dry mustard
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
ground bison (approx 10% to 20% fat)
vegetable oil


  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the chopped green onions, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, sea salt and black pepper.
  • Add the ground bison meat and blend with seasonings and shape into 6 patties.
  • Place patties in a single layer on small cookie sheet or serving tray.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Pre-heat barbecue to medium-high.
  • Brush a little cooking oil on the top side of the burgers. Quickly grease the preheated grill with a rag or paper towel soaked with some cooking oil. Place the burgers on the pre-heated grill, top side down.

  • Except when the burgers are being flipped, the barbecue lid should be closed during cooking.
  • Grill burgers for 4 minutes on one side without disturbing.
  • Flip burgers over and cook the opposite side for another 3 minutes.
  • Flip again, cook over reduced or low heat for 6 to 7 minutes.
  • To finish, flip one more time and cook over low heat for a final 6 to 7 minutes for medium-well to well done burgers.
