Share your favorite wild game recipes, hunting stores, and more!

Welcome to this week’s Game On, where other people can share what they’re doing with the Wild Game in their pantry. Venison, elk, bear, salmon, bass, squirrel…you get the picture. If you’re blogging about wild game, there are readers here who want to know about it. In fact, if you have any blog related to hunting, fishing, cooking game, or even cooking food that food eats (aka, home grown produce), share your favorite blogs. Read the “rules” here, and click on the Linky List link below to share your wisdom. I look forward to discovering many great blogs this week.

What do you have cooking for the new year? Any adventures planned? Share them today!

Happy New Year’s Venison Appetizers

Happy New Year! What a great start to 2012. We spent a quiet evening with a few friends, who devoured the two venison appetizers I brought to the party. Nothing makes a hunting widow and cook happier then people licking the plate clean!

venison appetizers: Dill bacon bitesvenison appetizers: root beer onion tartsThe only thing these two venison appetizers have in common is that, well, I used venison in them. Other than that, they are completely different tastes. Not surprisingly, the men had devoured the Dill Bacon Bites practically before I’d set the tray on the table. The ladies drifted toward the onion tarts.

I’ve posted both of these venison appetizer recipes on my Backyard Grocery site because I took pains to make sure I was using only local ingredients in them (that’s usually the criteria for posting a venison recipe on that site versus this one). So pop on over to check out the recipes: Dill Bacon Bites and Root Beer Onion Tarts.

Look for some other venison appetizers on this site too: I have a lot of them!

Why serve venison appetizers?

Do you have any friends or family that refuse to eat your venison? We do! What I’ve found is that bringing venison appetizers to parties is a great way to introduce people to the joys of venison. It’s safe for them—most appetizers are really just one bite of food. They can say they tried it, but aren’t stuck with a whole dinner if they hate it. But they never hate it. Never! I’ve become known for bringing a venison appetizer to any party I attend, and people generally look forward to seeing what I’ll show up with. Even the hunt club annual party, where everyone brings game, they’re excited. Because my venison appetizer recipes are also different than what most hunters are making. Try them out!
