Ground game meat can seem dry compared to fatty beef that many consumers are accustomed to eating. Often, when game is commercially processed, the processor will purchase cheap pork fat to mix into the ground meat. Preferring to maintain a healthy organic product, I process all of our game meat myself. For burger or sausage, I simply grind and package the meat.
To make it more moist when cooking, I grate a slice of bread into the meat, then mix in a few tablespoons of organic olive oil and seasonings to taste. Other optional additions include cooked rice, raw beaten egg, or grated onions. A splash of milk and/or Worcestershire sauce can add additional moisture. Shape into patties, cook as desired, and enjoy a juicy burger without the added fat.
