I just made these on a whim last night and they were fantastic!  I had some venison burger thawed out and I would not have changed a thing with the recipe.  If you do not care for venison burger then use a very lean cut of burger (no more than 8 grams in a 4 oz patty).  All the alcohol is cooked out but the blending of flavors is wonderful and they are perfect for the warm weekend we are to have here in the Mitten.  Enjoy!!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@gmail.com
