Deer Meat Casserole Made with Leftovers

For those who enjoy venison, deer meat is a delicacy. Each year I hope my step father will get a deer so I can have a roast and some steaks. All I can think about is how I will prepare meals using this type of meat.

This is a leftovers casserole, right down to the leftovers from a deer roast. The ingredients will vary according to what you have on hand, as this is meant to be a frugal meal. This is just one of many versions, and has no measurements. Just throw everything together in a casserole dish and bake.


deer meat, cut into small pieces

roasted potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces

vegetables such as peas and carrots

sweet potato and/or squash, cut into bite size pieces

1/8 to ¼ cup of water or homemade vegetable stock


rosemary or oregeno

sea salt

ground black pepper

  1. Place the first four ingredients into a baking dish and stir.

  2. Add the water or stock.

  3. Sprinkle the seasonings over the top.

  4. Bake at 350* to 400* depending on the oven, until the food is warmed through.


  • Use vegetables from the garden to save money.

  • It’s cheaper to buy a big size bag of sea salt than it is to buy multiple small ones throughout the year. Grinders are well worth the cost, in my opinion. This is a splurge for me. Same for black pepper.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with a side salad of any greens available at this time of year.

  • Shannon
