  • 1 lb ground venison
  • 2 Tableaspoons bacon fat melted
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Stir the seasonings into the bacon fat.
  • Break apart the venison in a bowl, and pour the seasoning mixture over the meat. Using your fingers, gently mix together.
  • Form into patties and fry for 2-3 minutes per side over medium heat.


You can substitute melted butter or olive oil for the bacon fat, if desired.
To make Bacon fat: fry a pound of bacon and remove the bacon to a plate. Use the remaining fat in pan.
You may freeze the sausage raw or cooked. Just use a freezer-safe wrapping or container.
You may add more cayenne for spicy sausage, or add brown sugar for sweeter flavor. 
You may omit the Italian seasoning and add sage for a different flavor.
