I just recently discovered ground buffalo and it makes delicious hamburgers! It's a leaner meat and has a unique & tasty flavor. These are a joint effort by my husband and I - I prepare the patties, he grills them to perfection.

This was an excellent recipe for ground buffalo. I was out of lemon pepper, but I used everything else, as directed. The burgers were moist and very tasty. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl mix the buffalo, egg, breadcrumbs, onions, mushrooms and garlic. Mix until well blended ( I have found the easiest way to mix is with my hands - it pays to get a little messy!).
  2. Season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon pepper.
  3. Form into hamburger patties. Make the patties thick - almost in the shape of a meatball. The thicker they are the juicier the burger will be.
  4. Cook on the grill for 8 minutes on each side. We usually soak hickory/mesquite chips and put those on the grill before the burgers for a nice smoked flavor (we use a charcoal grill). You want to be careful to not overcook these as the buffalo can dry out quickly.
  5. Place cheddar cheese on burgers when there is 1 minute left.
  6. Put on buns and top with your favorite toppings - tomato, pickles, lettuce, mustard, ketchup.
  7. Enjoy the unique flavor of buffalo.
