I made these last night and decided to share as they turned out fantastic. Definitely one of the best things I've made with wild-game burger and will be making them again - and probably often. Prep time was all of about 10 minutes and super easy.

1lb of venison burger - I grind mine with 20% bacon ends and pieces but you could chop some up and add. I divided into 10 equal size balls - you could vary this.

Put those balls into a lightly sprayed muffin pan and squash with a shot glass to form an impression.

Put a slice of cream cheese in the depression (I used about a butter square size)

Shredded cheddar on top - enough to cover

Topped with diced jalapeno - I used 1 large pepper and that was about right for us

Lightly salt and pepper

Baked 15 minutes at 400.

Added bread crumbs and baked another 5 minutes

We ate them just like this but you could throw them on slider buns if you wanted to.
