Bambi's Dad Died So You Can Make These Burgers, Burgers

I have never in my life understood the southern man's love of going out into the woods covering themselves in deer urine scent and camoflague clothing in orer to stalk and shoot animals.I have also never really enjoyed eating the meat of their resulting bounty and I really hated preparing the stuff. Something about the blood from the fresh processed wild game turned my stomach and I just couldn't do it.

Well maybe my new found heart of stone cold demeanor has changed something in me, because last night I found some ground venison in the freezer and decided to cook it up. I found a recipe on and figured I would just throw the burgers in the freezer for the little carnivore in the house. well the more I cooked and the more I smelled and the more I looked at the resulting lovely burger patties pan frying themselves to a nice brown color...the more I thought I should try one.

I tried a was the best burger (next to my asian turkey burgers) I've ever made at home. Seriously delicious. I've never added yogurt to a burger-but I think this might be a secret ingredient to a juicy amazing tasting burger.

Here's the recipe:

1 pound ground venison
2 tbsp plain fat free yogurt
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 small jalapeno diced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients, shape into patties and pan fry in a hot skillet until no longer pink on the inside.

Well nice to see you blogging again.... after, oh, only about a 2.5 year absence (lol). I'm a vegetarian, but I think I'll try it on my little carnivores tomorrow night.
