"I was fortunate enough to spot ground Elk at a local Grocery store and immediately bought a pound. Never having cooked elk before I called on my friend Bea for advice. She said it is very lean and tends to be dry so it's a good idea to add bacon. So I put together this recipe. Nice served with fried Onions, tomatoes, swiss cheese & BBQ Sauce. But you may choose your own favorite toppings. Of course you can BBQ the burgers."
