As a palate-pleasing alternative to traditional pork sausage, my husband and I created this lower-fat version. It's moist, flavorful and delicious. We especially enjoy it for breakfast or brunch.

Venison gives a pleasant change-of-pace flavor to this quick-to-fix pasta casserole. "Since my husband is an avid hunter, I'm always trying to find new ways to prepare ground venison," writes Donna Thomas from Bark River, Michigan. "Even those who usually don't care for the meat will like this hearty on-dish meal."
My husband is an avid hunter. Almost 55 years ago, his aunt gave us this recipe. The tender, flavorful meat combined with the sour cream and seasonings makes a wonderful dish. —Mary Calendine, Hiddenite, North Carolina
Until I met my husband, an avid hunter, I'd never cooked or eaten pheasant. I tried several different recipes before creating this one using our favorite ingredients.

These meatballs are a savory blend of ground venison and pork sausage, with water chestnuts for crunch. "This is my husband's favorite venison recipe," says Geraldine Mennear of Mastic, New York. "Even my co-workers, who normally don't like game meat, enjoy it."
The whole family is sure to enjoy this savory southwestern casserole. A refrigerated biscuit crust and packaged taco seasoning make preparation easy. Karen Witman of North Irwin, Pennsylvania submitted the recipe.
This flavorful stew works well with a variety of wild game. The meat turns out to be very tender and the sauce is thick, with a nice pepper presence. We like the stew on the hot side, so season to your taste.
For over 50 years, this elegant entree has graced my family's holiday table. The zesty stuffing with its nice nutty crunch complements the slices of moist duck, while the hint of orange in the gravy sets it apart.
