Antler and Fin Podcast: Venison Shepard Pie Boulettes

Shepherd’s pie originated in the mid-1800s. In its original form, it consists of a red meat cooked in a gravy topped off with mashed potatoes and baked to form somewhat of a casserole. My version utilized ground venison stuffed into a mashed potato “ball” and fried to a golden brown. The ingredients are easy enough, the process is the tricky part. Regardless, this ultra-comfort food is not only unique but extremely satisfying.
