If you’re looking for comfort food I have got you covered. Venison Pepper Stuffing Casserole is the definition of comfort food. It’s hearty, filling and satisfying.
This is a rendition of a traditional stuffed peppers recipe. It serves 10 people, depending on how hungry you are. After eating this, you’re going to need to hit the gym–but you’ll be too full and won’t be able to move–I kid you not! With that being said, I don’t fix this dish very often. It’s mostly reserved for special occasions.
When I was growing up, this dish was always served at family powwow’s, especially at Christmas and Thanksgiving. I remember watching my Momaw Inie, with her long dark curly locks, standing at the oven and putting layers of boiled green peppers on top and when it was done I’d always pick them off of mine. I’m sure she never noticed or I would’ve heard about it–waste not, want not, right?
This stuffing is so good with a slice of turkey or chicken. Oh, and let’s not forget the deviled eggs! You have to have deviled eggs at all get-togethers. I have been known to just make a pan of this and call it dinner.

To make this dish more diet-friendly…
- To help lower the cholesterol and fat use less fat in your ground venison burger. This recipe was calculated using 80/20 ground venison burger because that’s what most hunters use. If your burger has less fat this recipe will also have less fat and cholesterol. You can use ground venison that has no fat added and it will be just as delicious! Also, you could leave out the corned beef and that would help lower the sodium and cholesterol majorly. Use a cholesterol-free butter substitute as well and non-salted butter. Use the healthiest Ritz crackers you can find. They have reduced sodium crackers and reduced fat crackers, but for now, we will have to choose the lesser evil of the two. You could omit the Ritz crackers and buy a low sodium blend of breadcrumbs or make your own. All of these changes will also lower the calories.
