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
ground black pepper
Place the first four ingredients into a baking dish and stir.
Add the water or stock.
Sprinkle the seasonings over the top.
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.
Serve with a side salad of any greens available at this time of year.
