I am all about quick dinner ideas these days, but I’m even more about healthy homemade meals. Often it seems the two of those do not go hand in hand. However, these venison meatballs were actually quick to put together. I’m lucky to have a husband who loves to hunt so we have a freezer full of venison. If you aren’t as lucky, you can substitute ground beef and it will still be a delicious recipe! We had these meatballs with homemade sweet potato fries, but they would be great with spaghetti or as meatball subs, too!
You’ll find the full recipe, including a print version, on Homestead Scratch Cooking. Hop on over to grab the Baked Venison Meatballs recipe.
This can be a tasty make ahead meal to pull out of the freezer for those days when cooking just isn’t going to happen. Add a green salad, crusty rolls and enjoy!

There are probably as many ways to serve meatballs as you can dream up. Ask a group of blogging friends for their favorite ways to serve meatballs and stand back!

Easy Gluten-free Meatballs with Vegetables and Herbs
I think that the key to a great meatball is not only the meat and seasonings, but the delicious sauce. Teriyaki, barbecue, sweet and sour sauce, cheese sauce, and the ever popular Italian style spaghetti sauce. Personally, my favorite is teriyaki, followed by barbecue.
This recipe is a must try on my list. Learning and Yearning shared her family’s much loved homemade tomato sauce with beef bones. For a little different approach, try Susan’s Roasted Tomato Sauce.

What I like to do is buy a box or two of scalloped potatoes….fix according to the directions and then I add a cup or so of frozen veg….or a mix of fresh and frozen…you never can have too many veggies. 🙂 Then I nestle sausages deep inside the whole thing. We love British Bangers…they’re a larger sausage then a breakfast sausage and usually come in a package of 6. Pop in the oven for the recommended time and voila….instant comfort food in a flash.

Thanks Kate. Sounds yummy!
I wish we had some venison…. Thanks so much for sharing on the (mis)Adventures Mondays Blog Hop. I look forward to seeing what you will share next.
These sound fantastic! We’ve got some venison in the freezer, if I don’t use it all up (it’s getting pretty low, wasn’t a very good harvest year) I’m definitely going to try these out. Stopping by from the misadventures blog hop :).

Made these tonight and served with an apricot habanero jam dipping sauce. Soooo good!
This is my go to recipe with our ground vension. We got spicy italian ground venison but it has no flavor, so adding the seasonings from this recipe and making into meatballs gives it SO much flavor and covers up that “game” taste really well. Thank you SO much for sharing!
