I'm so excited to be sharing one of my favorite recipes with you! The best part about this recipe is that anyone can make it even if there isn't wild game easily available. Not only is it an inclusive recipe, but it is also extremely easy to make.

We normally make ours with ground buffalo or ground venison and it is irresistible either way!
