    1. Cook bacon in a frying pan over medium heat until browned and crisp. Pour bacon and dripping into a heatproof bowl and allow to cool. Heat olive oil in the same pan, then add garlic and shallots. Cook and stir until softened, about 3 minutes; then add to bacon.
    2. Once cool enough to handle, mix in venison, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, salt, pepper and egg until evenly combined. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
    3. Preheat the barbecue for medium-high heat.
    4. Shape the mixture into 6 patties and cook to desired doneness. Serve on toasted baps or hamburger buns with your favourite toppings.


    Not barbecue season? No worries, cook the burgers on a griddle or under the grill instead.
