Venison Breakfast Casserole
This delicious trail-inspired recipe will warm you up in the morning before you head out on the hunt. And it’s great for a delicious everyday meal at home, too.
- 10 eggs, beaten
- 1 lb. venison breakfast sausage (you can also use wild boar, elk or any other wild game breakfast sausage)
- 1 24 oz. cottage cheese
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, freshly grated
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 can hot green chilis (add fresh jalapeños for an extra kick)
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with a nonstick spray. Brown the sausage. In a large bowl, mix together all your wet ingredients, combining fully. Next, add all your dry ingredients, adding the sausage last. Bake at 400° for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve with your favorite hot sauce.
A Note from Chef Nick: For an added bite, add shredded hash browns to the mix.
