  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground buffalo
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Sharp Cheddar or American cheese slices
  • Hamburger buns
  • Lettuce, optional
  • Sliced tomato, optional
  • Mayonnaise, optional


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; add onion and garlic and sauté 5 minutes.
  2. Combine buffalo, onion mixture and remaining ingredients. Form into 6 patties about 3⁄4-inch thick. Place on a tray lined with plastic wrap, cover with more plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to cook. (Patties may be prepared 1 day ahead).
  3. Preheat grill until hot. Place patties on the grill rack over coals and cook, covered, about 4 minutes. Flip, top with sliced cheese, cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes more, until done. Place patties on bun bottoms; top with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise, if using, and bun tops. Serves 6.
