What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly brown. Allow to cool.
  2. Combine with other ingredients and form into patties about 1 inch thick.
  3. Preheat grill. Place patties on hot grill and cook on each side for 5 to 6 minutes or until done (an internal temperature of 165 F). Serve on buns with your favorite hamburger toppings.
