- 2 pounds elk meat, cubed
- 1/2 pound bacon
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 2 cups chopped green onions
- 3 teaspoons prepared horseradish
- ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard
- swiss chese, sliced
Run elk meat and bacon through a meat grinder, twice. Blend well, and add salt and pepper. Form into patties 1/2 inch thick.
Melt butter in a skillet, and add scallions, horseradish, Tabasco sauce, dry mustard, and worcestershire. Stir, and cook until onions break down. Spread onion mixture over 1/2 of the patties, add a slice of swiss cheese, then use the other to make a sandwich. Press edges together.
Place in broiler, about 2 inches from flame. Cook for about 5 minutes each side.
