Ostrich Burgers


While this might sound very exotic, Ostrich has a very beef like quality but is a much leaner meat. You might just be able to fool a few people with this recipe.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Makes 4 1/4-Pound Burgers


  • 1 pound ground ostrich
  • 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly brown. Allow to cool. Combine with other ingredients and form into patties about 1 inch thick. Preheat grill. Place patties on hot grill and cook on each side for 4 to 5 minutes or until done. Serve on buns with your favorite hamburger toppings.
