    Bear Fat Pop-Tarts Recipe

    Pop-Tarts are one of the most iconic American breakfast treats—and for good reason. What kid doesn’t love a sugar-packed fruit pocket wrapped in a firm crust that’s covered in colorful icing? These pastries have a nostalgic place in my heart, but we can one-up these morning pies with a wild twist...

    Venison Meatball Sub Recipe

    Meatball subs are one of my favorite Italian dishes to make at home. They are great for a quick dinner, work lunch, or meal to get kiddos excited about ground meat. With a touch of fat (I use 30%) and the right spices, you can create a venison sausage that rivals any chorizo you'd find at the deli...

    Turkey Egg Rolls Recipe

    Turkey season is upon us, and that means droves of hunters across the country are getting ready to harvest some of nature’s “other white meat.” These big birds yield a lot of great meat, but many folks are left questioning what to do with the legs. Wild turkey legs are very tough and full of tendons...

    Squirrel and Bacon Pizza Recipe

    It’s hard to argue with the versatility of an old-fashioned pot hunt. The meat from small game is tasty, easy to process, and can be used in a variety of preparations. While it might not be commonplace to work forest critters into weeknight meals, I feel that’s where they’re best suited. The mild...

    Venison Deep Dish Pizza Recipe

    Pizza is one dish that inspires a lot of debate. Thick or thin crust? Meat and sauce on bottom or top? Cheese first or last? Chicagoans are particularly passionate in this discussion. Deep dish pizza has deep roots in the Windy City. As an Illinois product of the 19th century, it’s now a staple...

    Country-Fried Rabbit Recipe

    Whether you call it country fried, chicken fried, or buttermilk fried, every small game hunter should have a classic fried rabbit recipe in their repertoire. It’s cliché, but it really does taste like chicken. Although you can use any cut from any rabbit, I’m picky about which meat hits the fryer...

    Fried Pheasant and Waffles Recipe

    Chicken and waffles just makes sense. Although separately these meals usually sit at opposing ends of the day, they come together to create a perfectly balanced combo. This is the definition of comfort food: crispy, buttermilk-soaked meat and fluffy, sweet waffles. Carbs be damned. Without...

    Bear Fat Chocolate Croissants Recipe

    Black bear grease is as versatile as it gets. Meat, hide, skull, and claws are nice, but it’s that beautiful liquid gold I get most excited about. Rendered bear fat is stable, mild, and useful—akin to typical shortening. It can be used in the same manner. I like it for biscuits, cookies, pie crusts...

    It’s difficult to overemphasize the excellence of a good Monte Cristo. It’s the perfect balance of flavors, textures, and aesthetics. The salty ham, rich cheese, and sweet jam make for the ultimate pub sandwich. The addition of a crunchy coating and wild game elevates the experience even further. I...
