11 Venison Breakfast Recipes Perfect for Brunch or Dinner, Your Choice

Brunch may sound like an intimidating meal to prepare, but if you’ve got the right recipe, it’s as easy as Sunday morning. If you’re a venison fan, you can easily incorporate this lean and delicious meat into any brunch recipe.

One pot meals like frittata and casseroles are great for serving a crowd and can even be made the night before and baked in the morning. If it’s an intimate brunch you’re after, think of something simple like a venison-stuffed omelet. Looking to impress? Try replacing Canadian bacon with venison tenderloin in a Venison Eggs Benedict.

Ready to get cooking? Here are 11 venison brunch recipes to get you started.

1. Venison Breakfast Sausage

This is one of those sausage recipes you’ve got to make in big batches so that you always have a bulk venison breakfast in the freezer for impromptu brunch celebrations. Serve with your favorite style of eggs or on the side of an order of buttermilk waffles.

This breakfast sausage recipe pulls together two types of pepper, both black pepper and cayenne pepper, to create an easy heat everyone will love. Get the recipe here.

2. Venison, Mushroom and Spinach Frittata

If you’re dining al fresco, you can cook this meal over an open fire or on the grill around medium heat, perfect for the final morning at deer camp or even a late-night dinner.

A healthy sprinkle of ground black pepper and some ground sage would bring this recipe over the top. Some shredded cheese and crushed red pepper would pair nicely, as well. Get the homemade venison recipe here.

Swap in venison sausage patties or venison summer sausage for Canadian bacon for a hunter’s take on a classic brunch dish. In fact, you probably don’t even need to add extra ingredients to your shopping list to pull this recipe off. 

A dash of ground mustard and onion salt in the Hollandaise sauce will cut through the richness for a slight tang that’s unbeatable. Top with red pepper flakes because you can. Get the recipe here, and feel free to swap in venison breakfast sausage patties. 

4. Venison Bacon

Yes, pork bacon is hard to beat, but when you slice and dice venison the right way, there isn’t much competition between the two. Venison wins every time. Brunch will be a hit when you set a platter full of venison bacon down on the table.

Pair with a Denver omelet, chock full of bell pepper, and experience a new way to enjoy game meats. Get the deer meat recipe here.

Save the bananas for dessert and serve up a helping of venison sausage stuffed french toast for a sweet and savory take on brunch. If you wanted to get fancy, you could fill the pockets with apple slices rubbed with brown sugar, too.

You could use ground pork, but homemade venison sausage just tastes so much better. The original recipe yields quite a few French toast pockets, find it here.

6. Venison Biscuits and Gravy

There’s nothing like biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Replace pork sausage with ground venison, and your meal just went the extra mile, well on its to becoming a family dish type favorite. 

When it comes to brunch, low calorie should not even be in your vocabulary. So pull out your large bowl and get to gravy-making, y’all! Get the recipe here.

Quiche may sound like a hard brunch item to make, but a prepared pie crust makes it easy. Venison, spinach, and cheese make it delicious. This would make a delicious holiday brunch, perfect for Easter afternoon or Christmas morning.

This recipe can be jazzed up using an array of spices to fit your tastes, or you can stick with the classic kosher salt and black pepper method. I personally like a dash of garlic powder in the eggs for flavor. Get the recipe here.

8. Venison Steak & Eggs

In fact, it’s so good, you’ll want to save this steak recipe for your venison stew. Get the recipe here.

9. Venison Breakfast Taco Casserole
