"This delicious, one-dish meal was designed to be most flavorful when made with ground venison, but it's also fabulous when made with other big game or even ground beef."

A friend just gave us 10 lbs of ground venison, so I decided to start the cooking mission with this recipe. Two thumbs up :) we thought it was fabulous! I thought the cottage cheese wouldn't really "go" with venison, but was great additional layer of yum. Will definitely make again.


This was awesome! My husband is very picky with how his deer meat is cooked but he loved this. I used sour cream instead of cottage cheese made it a little more runny but it was still excellent. I also added some seasonings to the meat such as liquid smoke...gave it a more smoked flavor! Overall a phenomenal meal and fairly quick to make


Excellent recipe, although I had my doubts about mashed potatoes on the bottom. I used ground elk sausage for the meat. Didn't plan ahead too well before I thawed out the elk, though. I was low on cottage cheese, so used half cottage cheese and half sour cream. It had to cook a little longer than suggested, but it worked fine. Also was out of tomatoes, so I scattered a handful of halved grape tomatoes on top. I'll admit the meal looks kind of gloppy when served out onto the plate, but it was certainly yummy. Both my teen-aged kids gave it a thumbs up, too!
