Genesis 27:31 And he also had made savory meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son’s venison, that thy soul may bless me.
My hunters do a lot of hunting …… and bring home a lot of venison!
We have found that a good-sized deer will produce about 30 one pound packages of ground venison. I personally would rather have ground venison than ground beef.
Venison has less fat and if it is prepared correctly it has a much better taste than beef.
We always have most of it ground up for use in stews, soups, meatloaf, burgers, just about anything really. But sometimes I need to get creative and come up with new recipes for variety.
Hence the recipe I’m sharing with you. Just remember, you don’t have to use venison you can use just regular ground beef in this recipe.
- 1 lb ground venison (or beef if you prefer)
- 1 package brown gravy mix
- 1 package ranch seasoning
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 stick butter, room temperature
- 1 can cream of onion soup (you can use cream of mushroom) and equal amount of milk
Preheat oven to 350º
Mix venison, gravy mix, ranch seasoning, eggs, ketchup, oats and butter together.
Just squish it with your hands until well blended.
Empty cream of onion soup into a bowl. Fill the empty can to the rim with milk.
Add milk to the soup and whisk together.
Pat out six patties and place in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Pour cream of onion mixture evenly over patties
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 45 minutes.
So simple, yet tender and delicious.
