Men usually cook completely differently than the girls do. My man is no different. I love when he cooks cause it’s not always something I would cook, or cook the way he does. Today he made Venison Patty Melts. Venison is a very lean meat and this sandwich was pretty darn good. When the boys hunt, they processes their own meat which I appreciate because you have a good idea of what you are getting.
Venison Patty Melt
- 1 lb. Ground venison
- 1/2 Package of onion soup mix
- 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- Salt & Pepper
- Cheese (we prefer cheddar or pepper jack, but use your favorite)
- Wheat bread
- Butter (to spread on one side of the sliced bread and for grilling the sandwiches)
Mix a pound of finely ground venison with the next four ingredients.
Shape into patties to fit the bread. Grill over medium high heat about 8-10 minutes on each side.
In a clean skillet over medium high heat (we prefer cast iron) sprayed with vegetable or butter flavored oil, place a slice of generously buttered wheat bread (butter side down), then layer a slice of thick cut cheddar cheese, cooked venison patty, another slice of cheese and another slice of bread (butter side out). It takes about 5 minutes to get a buttery toasted piece of bread. Take a peak by lifting it up with the spatula. When it looks the way you like it use a spatula to flip the sandwich over. Give it time to toast. That’s all there is to it.
Hubs peeled and sliced up some potatoes to fry along side of the sandwiches. A little salt, pepper and ketchup and lunch was ready. Don’t you love how he used a disposable plate so NO ONE had to do dishes? Love it when the man cooks.
