Karlee’s Wild Cheese Burgers

These are amazing burgers and fun to prepare with the kids. To make them really special, I like to top them with some fried onions and sliced garden tomato. And here’s a little tip for any burger: Get really good bakery buns! Slice them, glaze the sliced sides with a little melted butter and toast them on the grill. It makes a huge difference in the finished burger.


  • 2 pounds ground venison
  • 3/4 cup cooked wild rice
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Seasoning salt to taste
  • Sliced cheddar cheese

Mix all together and fry until done. Or cook them on the grill for a real treat. I recommend medium rare with venison, but everyone has their burger cooking preference. Put your sliced cheddar on after the first flip to adequately melt the cheese.
