It’s time to add a new recipe to our Venison Recipe Collection with these amazingly, delicious Blue Cheese & Mushroom Venison Burgers!!!
When our neighbor asked if we wanted some venison… It was a no brainer answer… YES!!!! Venison is one of our favorite meats to have on hand in the freezer. We are more than willing to take any off your hands at any time! My husband and boys will also quickly volunteer to help you skin and clean the deer!
Our family is kind of obsessed with burgers. Ground meat is so economical for our large family. And burgers are always a hit! I have even started grinding my own meat when I find good deals on beef, pork or chicken. And of course, I grind my own venison meat too. We use our KitchenAid mixer and food grinder attachment.
My husband has become a pro at coming up with some pretty awesome flavor combos for the burgers. He bought a stuffed burger press. And we love how easy it is to use. You can whip up a big batch of burgers and freeze half using a vacuum sealer. I love doing this for easy dinners on nights when we know we won’t have a lot of time.
Venison is a very lean meat. If you want your burgers to have a more juicy flavor you can add some ground fat from a pork shoulder or ask your butcher for some ground fat. We didn’t add any this time, and the burgers turned out really good. Instead we just greased our cast iron griddle with a good amount of butter before putting the burgers on. It added great flavor!
These burgers turn out quite big! They are about 1/3 lb each with all the cheese stuffed in them. When you cut them in half the blue cheese oozes out. I will be honest and let you know that this is heavy on the blue cheese flavor. So if you are not a big fan of blue cheese, try a different cheese in the middle.

I don’t think I’ve ever had venison or really know what it is. But, that burger looks delicious. It’s been a while since I’ve had one.
I love mushrooms on my burger. This one looks super tasty. Hubs got a new grill so we need to try this out!

Yummy! I love venison but never topped it with blue cheese before.
I have heard it was an acquired taste and I have yet to acquire it. LOL!!
Jessica Harlow says
I LOVE mushrooms. I know they pair so beautifully with blue cheese, so I’ll be this burger is awesome. I’m a little timid when it comes to venison, but I’d try it for sure!

These look so yummy! I love the idea of vacuum sealing your own burgers to quickly pull out for a meal. I haven’t had venison in many years but I bet this recipe tastes delish.

This sounds like such a delicious burger. Stuffing with blue cheese is such a great idea and it’s good to see that the burger press works so well!
I’m a vegetarian married to a carnivore. There’s not like a shortage of meat in our house, but my husband definitely appreciates it when I make something just for him. He’ll adore this burger.
I just tried Venison for the first time over the holidays. It was good. This sounds like an amazing burger!
While I am not a fan of bleu cheese, I am a fan of venison. We have a freezer full, I need to try this!

Try stuffing with Sharp cheddar instead of the blue cheese! So good.

I’ve actually never eaten a venison burger before! But blue cheese on anything sounds lovely to me!
