Cheesy Venison and Potatoes
|Prep Time: 5 Minutes||Yield: 4 Servings|
|Cook Time: 35 Minutes||Serving Size: 1/4 of the Dish|
|Total Time: 40 Minutes||Calories Per Serving: 509|
- 1 lb of deer sausage or ground deer burger
- 6 small taters
- 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 onion finely diced
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. of salt (optional)
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F
- Rub olive oil on the inside of a long cookie sheet or a long casserole dish.
- Cut the potatoes to the desired size. Note: The larger the potato, the longer the baking time.
- Place the potatoes in the pan and dash them with salt and black pepper and move and flip them about so they become covered with the olive oil, salt, and pepper and place them in the oven.
- Next, break the sausage or burger into small chunks and fry on medium-high heat just until it’s done, but not browned, and remove any leftover grease.
- After the potatoes have baked for 20 minutes, carefully remove them from the oven and sprinkle and mix the diced onions and deer sausage/burger in with the potatoes.
- Place the pan back in the oven for maybe another 10 minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes.
- Once the potatoes are done, (when a toothpick will go in easily), remove them from the oven and sprinkle the top with cheese and place it back in the oven for about 5 minutes–just long enough to melt the cheese.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool. Then devour!
