Don't miss out on the BEST Buffalo Burger recipe!

It's been a while since we've seen the sun. This winter has been long, but here is one of our favorite recipes for outdoor cooking, and one of the best dishes to grill up for a BBQ is a delicious burger. If you're looking to switch things up and try something new, why not try making buffalo burgers? Buffalo meat is a leaner, healthier alternative to beef, and has a unique flavor that's sure to impress your guests. Here's how to make the best buffalo burgers for your next BBQ.


  • 1 pound ground buffalo meat
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground buffalo meat, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Mix well to ensure the seasonings are evenly distributed throughout the meat.

  2. Add the Worcestershire sauce and egg to the mixing bowl. Using your hands, mix all of the ingredients together until they are well combined.

  3. Add the bread crumbs to the mixing bowl, and continue to mix everything together until the bread crumbs are evenly distributed throughout the meat mixture.

  4. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions, and shape each portion into a patty that is about 3/4 inch thick.

  5. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Once it's hot, place the patties on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked to your desired level of doneness.

  6. Serve the buffalo burgers on buns with your favorite toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheese.

Tips for making the best buffalo burgers:

  1. Use lean buffalo meat: Because buffalo meat is leaner than beef, it can dry out more easily if overcooked. Look for lean buffalo meat with a fat content of 90% or higher, and avoid overcooking the burgers to keep them moist and juicy.

  2. Don't overmix the meat: When mixing the seasonings, egg, and bread crumbs into the meat, be careful not to overmix. Overmixing can result in tough burgers, so mix everything just until it's evenly combined.

  3. Use a meat thermometer: To ensure your burgers are cooked to a safe temperature, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of each patty. The safe internal temperature for ground buffalo meat is 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. Let the burgers rest: After grilling the burgers, let them rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more flavorful burger.

Buffalo burgers are a great way to switch up your summer BBQ game and impress your guests with a healthier, unique option. With these tips and recipe, you'll be sure to make the best buffalo burgers at your next cookout.
