Gluten Free Venison Burgers with Roasted Tomato Blueberry Jam

I love burgers, such as my Gluten and Dairy Free Loaded Chili Burgers. Burgers should be messy. If you’re not getting messy with a burger, are you even doing it right? This over-the-top burger is all about textures and the balance of flavors.

Sticky Delicious

Gluten Free Venison Burgers with Roasted Tomato Blueberry Jam are about the toppings as much as the juicy burger itself. Decadent yet complex it will have you going in for the next bite.

Let’s dive into the meat of it all. These burgers begin with ground venison from First Light Farm. Their farm-raised New Zealand venison are raised in small herds on large pastures. This leads to a delicate flavor that cooks up tender.

The burgers are lightly seasoned with umami powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper. Cooking them in a cast iron skillet gives them that crave worth crust while also keeping them juicy. You can cook them either on the grill or on the stove.

The roasted tomato-blueberry sauce is stick, tangy, and a little sweet. Fire roasted tomatoes are combined with fresh blueberries, a little sugar, and balsamic. As they cook down the flavors marry about become a gooey sauce begging to cascade down the burger.

What’s a burger without some crunch? We’re topping these burgers with onion rings! Make extra because the onion rings are delicious on their own. No one will know they’re both Gluten Free and Dairy Free!

How to Make Gluten Free Venison Burgers with Roasted Tomato Blueberry Jam

Get out your cast iron skillet and invite a friend over. Burger night gets a taste of the exotic with this skillet burger.

Time needed: 45 minutes

  1. Make Your Patties

    Add your ingredients to a bowl and mix until they are just combined. Don’t over work your meat. Divide your meat in half and form two patties.

  2. Heat it up

    If making these on a grill, heat your grill to 500 degrees. Preheat your cast iron skillet. If you’re making these on the stove preheat your cast iron skillet on medium.

  3. Burger Time

    Allow the first side of the burger to cook approximately 3 minutes before flipping. Cook the second side about 3 minutes. I like to pull them off at 145 degrees. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes.

  4. Getting Saucy

    Add all of your ingredients for the Roasted Tomato Blueberry Jam to a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow them to simmer for 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the berries have slightly burst.

  5. Onion Rings

    Create a dredging station. Soak your onions for 5 minutes in Dairy Free milk before coating them in the Gluten Free flour mixture. Fry them in vegetable oil until golden brown and then allow them to drain.

  6. Burger Build

    Add your roasted tomato-blueberry jam to a Gluten Free bun. Top with your venison burger. Add a few, or lot, of onion rings and your top bun. Don’t forget extra napkins!

Top Tip for Gluten Free Venison Burgers with Roasted Tomato Blueberry Jam

Always make sure your cast iron pan is fully heated before adding any meat. This will give you that beautiful sear and crust. If your pan isn’t hot enough it will steam the meat instead of searing it.
