Grilled Bison Cheeseburgers with Bacon
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)
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
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.
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.
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.
Place buns on the grill, sliced sides down, to toast, about 1 minute. Spread mayonnaise over the toasted buns. Add burgers and bacon.
