Venison Foil Packets, a fast-cooking favorite with ground venison, potatoes, squash, peppers, onions, carrots, and cheddar cheese cooked to perfection in less than 30 minutes!

It’s grilling season a.k.a. foil packet meal season! I love foil packet recipes because the options are limitless. You can literally put anything you want in the packets and cook it up in different ways–the grill, the oven, the smoker, or even over hot coals on the ground.

It’s so easy! All you have to do is select and prep the ingredients, wrap them in foil, and cook until done. Oh, and clean up is extremely easy too. You’ll have almost no dishes to wash. That sounds pretty perfect to me!

Venison Foil Packets

Prep Time: 5 MinutesYield: 4 Venison Foil Packets
Cook Time: 25 MinutesServing Size: 1 Foil Packet
Total Time: 30 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 463

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb venison, ground
  • 3 red potatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow squash, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 fresh green onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup of matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp of butter

Instructions:

  • Preheat grill or oven to medium-high heat and tear off 8 large square sheets of aluminum foil.
  • Divide the ground venison into 4 servings, break it up into small pieces, and place it on 4 pieces of the foil.
  • Add a dash of salt and pepper or add whatever spices you’d like and top each with 1/2 Tbsp of butter.
  • Add veggies of your choice and add another little dash of salt, pepper, and spices and a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
  • Place the remaining 4 pieces of foil on top of the other 4 and fold each of the sides together, making a square.
  • Place in oven or on the grill and cook until done. The amount of time depends on the type of veggies you use. If you use the ones I listed in the ingredients it should be done within about 25 minutes.
  • Open the foil packet, add remaining cheddar cheese, and enjoy!

Notes:

If you decide to mix things up a bit and make several different ones you can write on the foil with a Sharpie so you won’t have to guess what’s inside.

You can check the potatoes with a toothpick to see if they are done. If the potatoes are done, typically everything else will be done as well.

Be careful when you’re opening the venison foil packets because the steam will be very hot. I like to use two sets of tongs and lean back away from it so I’m keeping my face out of the way of the steam. I had to learn to do that the hard way. Don’t ask!
