I made these little venison and cheese sandwiches for a party. I knew there would be a lot of food, and a lot of non-venison eaters. I wanted something light and tasty. Abe the host, an avid hunter and venison lover himself, said I HAD to put this in the cookbook, I could make them whenever I came to his house, and then proceeded to eat most of them himself. I’d say they were a hit.
