Pappy’s Take-Away

What I like about this recipe is, I’m always out of breadcrumbs!

So, since there isn’t any filler added to the deer burger, I don’t have to run to the store.

And you won’t have to either.

Let’s get into the recipe!

Easy Grain Free Venison Meatballs

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Savory
  • 1 lbs. Ground Venison or Preferred Meat
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Minced Onions
  • 1 tbsp Dry Parsley
  • 2 tsp Mineral Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly. Use your hands if you're not squeamish.
  • Preheat a cast iron skillet while making meatballs.
  • To test seasoning, cook a small piece and taste it. Adjust as necessary.
  • When you're happy with the seasoning, use a 1 Tablespoon measure to scoop out meat and form into balls (makes 16 meatballs this way) or make them whatever size you like (will change yield).
  • Place formed meatballs into the preheated skillet (or use a baking sheet or dish)
  • Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly browned on the outside.


Since venison is naturally lean, you may want to add fat ground into your venison. Which is fine. 
If you're using ground venison with no added fat, you can add 1 tablespoon of healthy fat/oil such as coconut oil or olive oil. This would result in less than 1 teaspoon fat per serving.
