    This will work with any ground meat, however, elk is IMO the best eating red meat on the planet.

    Bleu Elk Burgers -

    2# ground elk

    1 tblspn lea&perrins worcestershire sauce ( others are just NOT the same)

    1/8 cup finely chopped onion

    2 cloves finely chopped garlic

    1/2 tsp of dried sage

    1 large egg

    1 pinch salt or to taste

    2 pinches pepper or to taste. a little cayenne is nice too

    All of the above is combined thouroughly and then divided into 12 equal parts.

    8 ounces of good quality bleu cheese, i prefer Valdeon, but whatever you'd like is fine.

    4 crispy bacon stips, crumbled

    mix bleu cheese and bacon together and seperate into 6 equal sized "pancakes"

    form each of the meat rolls into patties, place one cheese/bacon patty on top, then cover with another of meat and form/seal to make the patty.

    Grill or pan fry until med rare - medium. I grill for 3-4 min per side on a med-high heat.
    Serve on toasted buns with a little dijon mustard and whatever other fixings you'd like.

    Hope you all enjoy!

    I agree. The best burger I ever had was in Sandpoint Idaho. It was an Elk burger with a cajon rub topped with blue cheese. Man I'm getting hungry.

    Wish i had more opportunity to hunt elk, but kinda scarce down here in TX. Thinking about trying to draw a tag in Wa for 2010 if I can. If not, I'll try to get my brother to put in for one, since he's still a Wa resident.

    btw, the elk recipe is from my own trials and testing. The postman often gives me odd looks; I get Food & Wine magazine one day and Handgunner the next...... I think that little bald spot on the back of his head can be attributed to me in some part ! :D
  11. If ya ever decide to try yer luck with our Roosevelt's,
    I'll make sure you have a good home base.

    Deer back strap fillets....

    Cut meat about 1 1/2" thick, wrap with thick sliced hickory smoked bacon, marinate 48hrs in Wishbone Italian dressing.

    Pan sear both sides of meat in olive oil to seal in moisture, finish on the grill for about 20 minutes....


  13. That sounds good too! I do something sililar to that myself.
  14. O that meat is purdy Rembrandt.
