Grilled Bison Cheeseburgers with Bacon


Sharp Cheddar cheese and crunchy bacon tops these grilled bison burgers served on Hawaiian-style buns for a delicious, hearty meal.


  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 1 pound ground bison
  • ½ cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 Hawaiian-style hamburger buns
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels; reserve bacon grease.
  3. Mix bison, bread crumbs, egg, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper in a bowl until evenly combined. The mixture should be slightly sticky and easy to form. Split into 4 equal patties. Use some leftover bacon grease to moisten each side of the patties; this will inhibit them from sticking on the grill and adds a little flavor.
  4. Cook patties on the preheated grill until browned, about 5 minutes on each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each patty should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place Cheddar slices on each patty and continue to grill until melted, about 1 minute more. Remove to a plate.
  5. Place buns on the grill, sliced sides down, to toast, about 1 minute. Spread mayonnaise over the toasted buns. Add burgers and bacon.
