Venison Hamburger Helper

I hope all of you have freezers full of deer meat and are looking for more ways to use it because I am also slowly working through my own! This Venison Hamburger Helper is done in one pot and is just as easy as the store bought!

I feel like hamburger helper has a bad rap as a cheap food, but I love it! I mean what’s bad about meat, cheese, and pasta thrown together? For my recipe though I wanted to use venison, obviously, and add some more flavor than what is in the regular box. This isn’t a hard recipe and is surprisingly good! It is extremely flavorful and because it isn’t coming from a mass-produced company you get less of a “refined processed” taste and more of a “oh my goodness, I am going to eat five pounds of this” taste 🀣. This is another family friendly meal that could become a staple in your household. Enjoy and let me know in the comments how it goes!!
