Here's a Great Venison Meatball Recipe for Your Super Bowl Party

These venison meatballs are easy and will have your guests asking for more. 

The wonderful thing about cooking meatballs is that you can dice them up for several different recipes. Especially when you make them out of venison, which many people do not think of making when they are considering how to utilize all that meat from this past hunting season.

However, this recipe is great for holiday parties, birthdays and even your Super Bowl party coming up. The lean, tangy taste will make you crave more, but won't leave you feeling overly stuffed. Try these venison meatballs for any special occasion.
