I am normally completely against mixing bacon with wild game because I feel that the strong flavor of the bacon over powers the natural flavor of the wild game. This recipe is one exception. In the recipe’s most basic form, it is just fun, delicious, and so easy to prepare. Perfect for that summer BBQ!

Ingredients:

1 lbs ground venison

3 cups shredded monterey jack cheese

12 avocados, halved and pits removed

1 lbs of bacon, strips cut into thirds

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp of ground black pepper

1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning

1 tsp of salt

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Bring a medium skillet to medium high heat
  3. Add ground venison, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, and salt
  4. Cooked until meat is browned
  5. Arrange avocados on a baking sheet
  6. Scoop ground meat into the avocados
  7. Top with cheese and then bacon
  8. Place in oven and cook for 15 minutes
  9. Turn on for broiler and cook for 5 minutes or until bacon is crispy
