Grilled Bison Burgers
Prep Time:
13 Minutes
Cook Time:
7 Minutes


  • 1 lb. ground bison -or- 3 to 4 (1/3 lb.) bison burger patties
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 tsp. Flavor Crust Seasoning


  1. If frozen, thaw ground bison in the refrigerator for two days before making the patties. Preheat griddle to 550°F before cooking. We suggest using a laser thermometer to test the temperature.
  2. Form bison into three or four burger patties.
  3. Coat the burgers on both sides with olive oil spray to help form a crust; this keeps the juices in the burger.
  4. Sprinkle patties with seasoning blend.
  5. Place the bison burgers on the griddle for 4 minutes on the first side. Flip the burgers, and cook for an additional 3 minutes. The internal temperature should be 135-140°F.
  6. Let burgers rest for several minutes before eating.
  7. Serve on buns with your favorite condiments.
