Absolutely amazing super succulent recipe! Will definitely do again, I made it for two instead of four and it seemed a lil confusing in such small increments but everything was just enough and the burgers came out humongous! I only regret not having the correct cheese in the recipe. First time trying bison and won't be my last!

Delish!!!! I changed a couple things purely because of personal preference/what I had on hand but the original recipe sounds amazing too!!! I omitted the thyme, used panko bread crumbs, 2 eggs, garlic, onion and chipotle powders, and subbed almond milk. I also topped with a slice each of Chipotle Gruyere, Smoked Gruyere and Havarti with Jalapeño peppers. Also added blue cheese crumbles to the fig/shallot filling. Served on a toasted onion bun with baked butternut squash on the side! It was divine and I can't wait to eat another one tomorrow!

I love bison. I was very happy with the burgers though I must say that I couldn't really taste the fig/shallot mixture as the bison itself seems to overpower it. Not in a bad way, but it didn't seem worth the trouble to make the fig filling if I can't really taste it. I followed the recipe exactly. Maybe it needs more fig or something that pulls the fig flavor out better. I may experiment next time and use the fig more as part of a sauce like another reviewer did.

Loved this recipe! I didn't have figs or cranberry juice so I substituted 1/2 c fig butter from Trader Joes and used the fig as a sauce.

devoured it for dinner. at a leftover one for lunch the next day. and for breakfast the following day. rich and smoky from the cheese contrasted by sweetness and crunch form the shallots and figs. i feel this is the beginning of my love affair with bison.

We loved this recipe! I did use cranberry juice, and because I wasn't sure what kind of dried figs to use I used half black Mission and half Calimyra. Using bison I'd suggest you won't want to overcook it. This made a very excellent meal tonight! Once you figure out how you want to eat this----as a traditional hamburger-type or a more upscale type----you'll enjoy all the varieties you can make. We will have this again!
