Cook's Note:

If you would like to start with a venison roast and grind it yourself, just cut the venison and bacon into chunks, then toss together with the seasonings before grinding and forming into patties.

Had some frozen hind quarter. After it was thawed I chopped it up with the appropriate ratio of bacon mixed in the spices and put it through the grinder. It smelled really great but when we cooked it up I was a little under-whelmed. I couldn't really taste any of the spices it just tasted like venison burger with some bacon in it. I should have read the reviews and would definitely recommend doubling the spices (including the salt) and adding something like red pepper flakes and cayenne. I have made a lot of other pork sausages never a venison one before so maybe my expectations are off but it ended up bland to me. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly. Unfortunately I didn't have fresh venison at the time so resorted to frozen. That's the only reason I didn't give my attempt 5 stars. The patties were delicious but Im sure they would have been even better with fresh venison. The left-over patties were delicious in hamburgers too. I'll use the same recipe in the future for moose and caribou it was that good. Read More

The firt attempt at making this sausage I ended up with venison hamburgers with bacon. The second time I put everything in the food processor added a jalapeno and doubled the spices (the venison overpowered everything the first time). I feel that it was still lacking some fat could be my ground venison. Read More

I just ate the first test patty and it was some of the best sausage I have tried. I like some spice so I added some crushed red pepper flakes and some ground cayenne pepper ( I didnt measure the amount just what looked like it would add a kick). I will be making huge batches to pass out to family and friends. My mouth is watering just writing the review. Thanks for posting this one. Read More

This looks really good..pretty much what I was looking for in a recipe. I found a few from a couple of wild game cookbooks but I think this tops them! I will probably follow the other reviews and spice it a little more but looks good! Thanks! Read More

This did not end up with enough fat content to taste like a traditional breakfast sausage. That being said it was pretty good and is a great idea the spices need to be increased to taste also I think a touch of brown sugar would be a nice addition. Read More
