  • Ground Venison Shepherd’s Pie
    Ground Venison Shepherd’s Pie
    It’s that time of the year where the days are starting to get cold and the smell of fall is in the air. It’s the perfect time to eat something that warms the heart and soul — a good ol’ Shepherd’s Pie. It’s the essence of holiday spirit: robust flavors and wholesome ingredients symbolize bountiful feasts and gatherings. Ground Venison Shepherd's Pie is a twist on the classic version using Silver Fern Farms Premium Ground Venison. It’s bold, it’s hearty, and it’s exciting for the crowd. The filling is cooked until browned, topped with a layer of familiar, creamy mashed potatoes, then baked until golden brown. It’s truly a labor of love that deserves a place on your holiday table. ~ @fationatefoodbelly
  • Lamb Wellington Bites

    If you're looking for a delicious holiday appetizer that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser, then try these Lamb Wellington Bites. The combination of tender lamb medallions wrapped in a crispy, buttery puff pastry makes for a mouthwatering treat. Pair with homemade Dijon and horseradish dipping sauces for a truly irresistible treat. Note: I like to refrigerate the lamb for a few hours before adding to the puff pastries to help slow down the cooking process in the oven. This allows for the puff pastries to brown better on the outside.
