"Two changes to this wonderful recipe. Used lite sour cream instead of yogurt (had no yogurt) & used canned mild chilies instead of fresh. This was an easy, terrific recipe. And no it didn't taste like chicken but it didn't taste gamey either."

"Some version of this recipe has been a staple in my home for a few years. My husband, who is an avid hunter, previously hated venison burgers. We sub plain Greek yogurt for the mayo and the yogurt. Typically use ten onions instead of green, and often add an egg to the burger mix. We have made this with moose, elk and whitetail. I like to add slices of avocado and pepper jack cheese to mine and even enjoy the leftovers!"

"The yogurt and seasonings take the game flavor from the meat. I use Greek style yogurt and increased the amount to 5 Tbsp.

I think it also helps to form the burger patties in advance for better flavor."
