1. Venison Burger with Bleu Cheese and Crispy Shallots

There are two things in life that taste good with just about anything – cheese and onions. Shallots, a cousin of garlic and onion, are delicious in any form, but especially when they’re fried to up to crispy perfection.

I know I’ve preached simplicity, but this recipe nails it on specialty ingredients while still keeping things relatively simple.

2. Classy Venison Cheeseburger

Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger. No matter where you go, you can bet you’re going to see a cheeseburger on the menu. A venison cheeseburger, on the other hand, is much rarer a find and twice as delicious. If classic flavors are your current calling, this recipe will set you right up for success. Focusing on fresh ingredients like arugula in place on lettuce and with a generous helping of pickles, this is a great update to an American classic.
