Making venison burgers?
What do you guys mix with the deer meat when you make deer burgers? I want to keep it as healthy as possible, while getting it to stay together well enough to grill, so was thinking mixing it with lean burger, like 93/7.
What are some suggestions?

We mix about 20% pork fat and high temp cheese.....maybe not as lean as you're looking for, but the flavor is superb.

We mix in a little pork sausage with ours...they taste great, don't dry out, and they won't fall a part on you. You can just use a little pork fat and get the same thing though.

ttt - anybody just use beef to cut it?

I've mixed some 80/20 beef with some for burgers before. Seemed ok. IMO the 93/7 wouldn't help a whole lot (just too lean). Just think you need a little more fat to keep them from being too dry.

100% venison. add some egg to the burger when making patties to keep together...

X3 on the egg, I put a dash of A1 and spicy mustard in as well.
