I made this with ground venison, and they were rather dry. Could be due to the next to zero fat content in the meat. I didnt add the salt either, i try not to use salt, but in this case it needed it. Thought the saltiness of the bacon would have been enough, I was wrong. All those things were of my doing, and have no influence on my decision to give this dish a lowly 3 star, that is based on the fact that bacon NEVER began to crisp up even after 30 minutes in the oven. If it would have even a tiny bit cripsy, I would have been rather pleased with this dish. Would recommend (if using venison) to add a bit of oil to the meat, and dont leave out the salt.
