Deer Sausage Sandwich

I’ve often considered trying to come up with clever titles for my posts, but then I believe it would make it more difficult to search, so I try and make them descriptive. I’ve been diligently working to clean out our freezer and I discovered a package of hot deer sausage given to me by my cousin. Since dinner was a fend for yourself kind of affair, I decided on a sausage sandwich.

The sausage comes from my cousin or his son in West Virginia and I don’t know if it’s pure venison or a blend, but I do know it had a good flavor and a nice heat. They live in an area where hunting deer can almost be accomplished by sitting on your patio and harvesting one when it wanders by. I’m the lucky recipient of a few packages or assorted product regularly.

So when I found this, I decided to just make a simple sandwich. I sautéed some onions and peppers then removed them from the pan and fryed the sausage. When it was close to done, I added a couple of slices of cheddar cheese and the veggies. When the cheese was melted I put it between two slices of bread with some mayo and it was delicious. After the fact, I thought I should I have considered some type of aioli, but.

I don’t hunt or fish, cause I don't like turning animals into meat, but I’m glad I know people who do and are willing to give me some.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. I've always said that if I had to kill my own food, I'd be a vegetarian. re: those titles. In wordpress, you can edit your "short link". Let's say you wanted this title read "Deer in the headlights". You could then go in and manually change the link of the title to read: Venison Sausage Sandwich, and that's what search engins would pick up.

  2. I'm with you on hunting. I'm not morally opposed to it, I just don't want to do it myself.

  3. Hi There, I agree... I LOVE meats and have no problem eating them.. But I've never hunted --nor even know someone who does... I couldn't do it ---but those who do love it.

    Have a great Sunday.

  4. My son is a hunter and is amazed that I have to shoo deer out of my yard! He always kept the freezer stocked with venison down in Texas and I miss that. I love venison chili better than beef any day. But I couldn't kill a deer - so I'll stick to beef. ;)


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
