Everything tastes better with bacon. That is just an indisputable truth. Venison burgers are no exception. However, I’ve never really been a fan of putting pieces of bacon on a burger. I don’t know why this is when I love bacon so much, but I’ve stopped wondering why I do or don’t like certain things.
But what about using bacon as the vehicle for the venison burger? There’s a thought. I’d like to take credit for dreaming up the thought, but we can thank YouTube for that. My nephew (who spends ALL of his free time watching YouTube videos) told me about one where the person used bacon to make plates. Very interesting. Then as I was surfing recipes, I came across a recipe on Your Lighter Side, a site dedicated to low carb eating and featuring bacon prominently.
There are endless combinations for the ground venison stuffing for these bacon baskets. The one posted here is what is pictured. Some fun alternatives would be the BBQ Venison burger, the spicy venison burger, or the zesty horseradish venison burger. I’m making myself hungry just thinking about these venison burgers!
