Cooking time:


1 pound ground Florida alligator meat
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons Florida onion, finely chopped
1/3 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red Florida bell pepper, cut into strips
1 green Florida bell pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow Florida bell pepper, cut into strips
1 Florida onion, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
French bread slices or rolls


Preheat grill. In a bowl, combine alligator meat, egg, onion, salt and pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Mixture will be very moist. Shape into 4 patties, each 1/2-inch thick. Cover and set aside. Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and pepper strips and sauté until tender. Season to taste; reduce heat and keep warm. Grill meat patties for 10 to 12 minutes over medium heat until cooked through, turning once. Serve open-face on French bread slice or in a roll; top with sautéed onion and peppers.
