Make Deer Sausage Recipes with Old Meat Grinder

Seek and ye shall find some deer sausage recipes to delight your palate.

When our family first began eating a lot of venison, we didn’t know how to make sausage. We just cut up the deer into standard beef-type cuts. The smaller portions we’d cut into cubes for stew meat (delicious!) and throw away the marginal or fatty pieces.

We often thought about how to make deer sausage, but somehow had the idea we’d need casings and a lot of equipment. We thought it would be complicated and take too much time. But I hated to throw any scraps away.

Somehow we got the idea to use our old hand grinder and try to grind the scraps. My wife advised, “We don’t need casings; let’s just leave the sausage loose.” So we tried. We should have caught on years ago. What came out of the meat grinder was fresh ground venison. It looked good and tasted better!

Here’s one of the deer sausage recipes that I hope you find tasty.


¾ pound ground deer meat
¼ pound ground pork
1 1/2 cups grated raw potatoes
1/2 cup grated onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco


Combine all ingredients except ketchup, salt and Tabasco and mix thoroughly. Shape into 8 patties, approximately 3 inches in diameter. Brown deer sausages on both sides in melted butter in heavy frying pan or skillet.

Combine ketchup, celery salt, and Tabasco sauce. Pour over deer patties. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 10-15 minutes more.

Serves 6-8.
