What you'll need

Large bowl
Stovetop or grill


Serves 6
1 pound Ground Bison or 1 pound Ground Lean Turkey
1/2 cup Wild Rice cooked and cooled or 1/2 cup Brown Rice cooked and cooled
1 Egg lightly beaten
2 cloves Garlic minced
1/4 cup Parsley chopped
1 tablespoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
6 Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns


1.Combine meat, rice, egg, and flavorings in a large bowl. Stir until all ingredients are evenly mixed.
2.Divide meat into 6 portions and form into thin patties.
3.Prepare a grill or heat a heavy skillet over medium-high. Working in batches if needed, cook patties over until very well browned on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Flip them carefully with a spatula, then continue cooking until done, another 3 to 5 minutes. (Avoid overcooking bison, as it can toughen.)
4.Serve on whole wheat bun with desired toppings.

Chef's Tips

  • To cook wild rice, combine 1 cup wild rice and 3 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat, and simmer until grains are tender and some are puffed open, about 40 minutes.
