3 Super Sandwiches and Burgers to Make With Your Venison

Venison is one of the most nutritious meats to eat among wild game and in the kitchen, it’s incredibly versatile for someone with designs on making great meals.

Ground venison? Man, where do you start? Casseroles, spaghetti and pasta dishes, burgers, meatloaf … the options seem limitless. Don’t forget about soups, either, whether you’re doing it with a cast iron Dutch oven, slow cooker or giant pot to feed a hungry crew of hunters.

Roasts? Bigger hindquarter roasts are great on the smoker or in the slow cooker. Shoulder roasts are great in the smoker on the ol’ low-and-slow plan to then shred for sandwiches or tacos.

Here are three easy venison recipes to try that should make your mouth water and keep your family or friends coming back for more.

Venison burgers are like venison chili in that there’s no one or perfect or specific way to make them. Everyone has their own style and can create whatever they prefer, from nothing but bread and meat to a stacked masterpiece. (Photo: Getty Images)

When grinding your burger add 1/3 part bacon to the grind. Put a couple of chunks of deer into the grinder then a strip of bacon. Regrind all of the mix a second time through then package as you normally would. Cook them on the grill, use your normal toppings and enjoy.
