Bulk Venison Breakfast Sausage


"My husband is a avid hunter and we make this sausage every year. We add pork to the venison because the venison has such a low fat content. For the pork we get really fatty looking roast ground at our grocery store."

  1. In a very large bowl or plastic tub, sprinkle the venison and pork with the curing mixture, pepper, pepper flakes, sugar, and sage. Mix very well to evenly incorporate everything.

I work with quite a few avid hunters, though venison is rather new to me as a cook. They all know I love to cook, so they keep bringing me in venison - of course they also know I'll make something with it, then bring it in for them to eat! Anyway, looking for new things to try and found this - wonderful!! Everyone loved it! I made biscuits and gravy with this sausage and everyone came back for seconds....and thirds!! Thanks for taking the time to share the recipe!


Excellent recipe! I was able to use up some venison roasts as well as make a more healthy breakfast sausage. I did add a bit more sage as that is my taste, I do appreciate the suggestion to try a sample before freezing. Thanks alot!


Terrific recipe, AmynJohn! We have 3 hunters under one roof and using all that venison can be a challenge before the next season rolls around. This will definitely help to use up the meat. We used Adobe seasoning instead of the curing mixture since I could not find the Morton's one you suggested. The entire family (even Grandma!) enjoyed our sausage gravy and biscuits this morning.
