Spicy Ostrich Burger

Spicy Ostrich Burger

This spicy burger turns up the heat and the flavor! 

Ingredients
1 pound gourmet ground ostrich steak
2 tbsp AOF burger seasoning
¼ cup yellow onion, minced

Toppings
lettuce
sliced red onion
tomato
pepperjack cheese
chipotle mayo
grilled jalepeno
 

Preparation
1) Thaw out 1 pound of ground ostrich and pat with a paper towel to absorb any extra moisture

2) Place ostrich into a mixing bowl and add 2 tbsp of AOF burger seasoning and minced onion

3) Mix the ingredients together well and form into your desired sized patties -- remember, a 1/4 pound ostrich burger will eat like a 1/3 pound beef burger because our burgers don't shrink!

4) Heat grill to medium-high, lightly baste your patties with olive oil and place them on the grill

5) Cook to your desired temperature.  Remember, ostrich will cook more quickly than beef due to the low-fat content.  And great news: ostrich can be eaten at lower temperatures than beef (including medium-rare) because it's safer and easy on your digestive system.
