If you live in an area where you can purchase a blended seasoning intended for game that's a good choice. But you can make a good basic seasoning using equal parts of garlic salt, onion pwd then add 1/2 again as much black pepper.

2-3 lb
ground venison/deer
1 large
onion or 2 med onions
green bell pepper
small amt. finely chopped celery
worcestershire sauce
1 can(s)
diced fire roasted tomatoes
mixture of salt, pepper and garlic pwd.
*(or other seasoning mixture intended for wild game)
potatoes depending on size
*the potatoes will be mashed and create a thick top layer for the dish


1Cut onion and green bell pepper into small pieces but not minced.

Mince celery
2Season ground venision well in skillet
Add onion, green pepper & celery.

There is no fat content in wild game..the vegies will add their own moisture to the skillet but Be prepared to add a bit of oil to facilitate the frying process.

Put a good brown on it for good flavor..the vegies should be soft -but don't burn them
3Add worcestire sauce, stir and taste. It should enhance the flavors..not overpower them

Add the fire roasted tomatoes and cook on med.heat till all vegies are fully cooked.
4Remove mixture with all it's juices to 9x13 dish
5While meat & vegies are browning..
Cube potatoes and boil till soft. Drain

Add a stick of butter and give them a rough mash. I also add a little salt & pepper to the potatoes.
6Top mixture in 9x13 with mashed potatoes

Top potatoes with some shred yellow cheese.
7Bake at 400 degrees till heated through and top has browned a bit.

Serve with a hearty bread if possible.
