  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix bison, Panko crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic, and pepper together by hand in a bowl; form into 4 patties. Place patties on baking sheet, cover with aluminum foil, and refrigerate until chilled, about 15 minutes.
  3. Spray the patties with cooking spray and grill until hot and slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. Top each burger with a slice of cheese; continue cooking until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).
  4. Sandwich burgers between bun halves.

My husband and I cooked this tonight and it was so good!!! The burgers turned out juicy and tasty. We didn't cook them for 5 minutes on each side, like the recipe said. We did 3 minutes on each side on 450 degree grill and they came out 140 degrees. We will definitely be making these again!

First time cooking with bison so thankful for this great recipe. I've heard bison can get dry because it's so lean, but the egg, Worcestershire, and breadcrumbs seemed to bind it together nicely and keep it from drying out. Made just as described except added some salt to the formed patties. The burgers were super flavorful. Turns out I like bison so look forward to making this again.

I didn't have a grill so they are pan fried in a little olive oil. Added sweet and spicy BBQ sauce in place of the hot sauce and muenster cheese.... Delicious!

I have replaced ground beef in my rotation with bison. Most of the time thought I make it into meat sauce, because there's so little fat that you can't make a meatloaf and/or a burger. This recipe called for the addition of an egg and Panko. Couldn't find Panko in the pantry so I use an equal amount of Matzoh Meal; which has no seasoning in it an I left out the hot sauce. They were delicious and I made them on my grill pan following the rest of the directions. Thank for submitting this. I've saved it to my recipe box.
