The ultimate in delicious patties.
Create a restaurant quality burger at home by mixing mushrooms and onions that have been sauteed in red wine into your burger patties before cooking. They make great bacon cheeseburgers!
After you’ve diced the onions and mushrooms, start to saute them in the melted butter with the garlic over medium heat.
Once the onions start to look a little translucent, pour in the red wine. It should cover the bottom of the pan.
Let the wine simmer until it is mostly reduced to a thickened sauce with the onions and mushrooms.
Remove everything from the pan and let cool at least to room temperature.
Form the ground bison into 3 patties using your hands.
Take the cooled onion and mushroom and spoon about 1 Tbsp onto each patty. Mix the meat, onions, mushrooms, and sauce together and reform. It’s ok if the patties feel a little “wet” because of the red wine sauce, but be careful not to drown them in it. You can add more to your liking but be careful not to add too much or they won’t form properly.
Cook the patties on medium-high heat for about 4-5 minutes on each side. This is for a pretty large/thick burger. Decrease the time if you've made smaller/thinner patties.
Serve with whatever you like and enjoy! I went for a classic bacon cheddar cheeseburger combo, but this patty would also make a great melt with just some cheese added to it!
