It's that time of the year again...deer hunting season. Here in NH,it opens with archery season for both sexes,then muzzle loader season opens. You can hunt both sexes for three days,then it's bucks only. Muzzle loader season ends,then rifle/shotgun season begins. In rifle/shotgun season,one can hunt both sexes for only two days,then it's bucks only.Rifle/shotgun season opens on Wednesday,Nov 15 and lasts into the middle of Dec,when archery season ends.
So...the hunter in your family has been successful and now you have all this venison staring you in face. You can't just have steaks and tenderloin,right?
I was trying to find a recipe for venison sausage a few years ago,and stumbled across this easy one for Venison Breakfast Sausage on Cooks.com. It makes a nice change from steaks!
Venison Breakfast Sausage
1 lb. ground venison (no suet)
1 lb ground pork
2 tsp ground sage
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Put ground venison and pork in a large bowl. Mix spices together and sprinkle over the meat. Mix the meat and spices together with your hands until thoroughly combined. Shape into a roll,wrap in plastic or foil,and chill overnight the fridge. Slice and fry as regular sausage.
Simple and delicious! Enjoy :)
