  • Cusine



1 lb ground bison

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste

4 hamburger buns

For the Thousand Island Barbecue Dressing:

½ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup ketchup

2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

2 tablespoons barbecue sauce


Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire. Mix the mayonnaise, chili sauce, 2 tsp. of the barbecue sauce, sweet pickle relish, and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Set aside. In a medium bowl, use your hands to gently mix the bison with the remaining 2 tsp. barbecue sauce, 1 1/4 tsp. salt, and 3/4 tsp. pepper. Form into four 1/2- to3/4-inch-thick patties. Lightly oil the grill grate and place the patties on the grate. Cover and grill for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the burgers, cover, and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes for medium . While the burgers cook, toast the rolls on the grill. Spread some of the dressing on each half of the roll and arrange a lettuce leaf and a slice or two of tomato on the top halves. When the burgers are done, put them on the bottom halves. Assemble the sandwiches, cut in half if you like, and serve.
