Creole Deer Burgers are hot and juicy tongue-tingling Creole flavored venison burgers with a spicy homemade Creole mayo. Yummy!
Who doesn’t love a good juicy cheeseburger? I do, especially if it’s a deer burger. These are ready to eat in a matter of minutes and are so good. If you’re craving a burger don’t go get takeout, fix these instead and your taste buds will thank you.
I love spicy foods! You probably already figured that out from some of my recipes. Years ago I was at a friends house and he made some turkey burgers and topped them with Creole mayo and I loved it. I just had to try it on some deer burgers so a few days later I did just that and OMG it was so good. Then I decided I wanted a little more heat and added some to my burger mixture and I was in heaven! I’m a huge Creole fan. I think you could put some on an old rotten stump and I’d eat it.
This recipe is not for the faint-hearted! If you like plain burgers–no spice or heat–don’t eat this one! You can, of course, leave the Creole out of the burgers and not use Creole mayo and you’ll be good to go.
Creole Deer Burgers
|Prep Time: 5 Minutes||Yield: 4 Burgers|
|Cook Time: 6 Minutes||Serving Size: 1 Burger|
|Total Time: 11 Minutes||Calories Per Serving: 414|
- 1 lb venison, ground
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup of quick oats – uncooked.
- 1 1/2 Tbsp of Creole seasoning ( I like Tony Chachere’s original)
- 1/2 cup of mayo
- 1/4 Tbsp Creole seasoning
- Prepare the Creole mayo first by mixing the mayo with 1/4 Tbsp of Creole and refrigerate it for later.
- Break the ground deer burger up and then add the egg, oatmeal, and Creole seasoning and mix.
- Divide into four meatballs and then press the meatballs into patties.
- Preheat the pan to medium-high heat and place them in the pan. Once the bottom of the burger and part of the sides are browned, turn them. Fry on each side for a few minutes each for a well-done burger–less for medium-rare or rare burger.
Note: Deer meat gets done much faster than beef. Please try to not overcook them or they will be dry.

To make this recipe more diet-friendly…
- To help lower the calories, fat, sodium, and cholesterol, you can omit the Creole mayo. These burgers pack plenty of heat already, so you don’t absolutely have to have the Creole mayo.
- A lot of the cholesterol is coming from the venison–more so because of the fat added to the venison. I calculated these burgers with 20% fat added because that’s what most hunters add to their venison. You could use less fat in your burger, but I wouldn’t cut very much fat because the burgers will be very dry. You could also use a cholesterol-free mayo for the Creole mayo.
- To help lower the sodium even further you could use a little less Creole seasoning in the burgers.
