Venison Recipe: Cheesy Elk Pie

This homemade elk recipe is a satisfying comfort dish. It's a take on shepherd's pie and it's worth its weight in gold

By: Raschell Rule,


  • 3-4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pound ground elk meat
  • 1/2 teaspoon homemade garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon homemade onion powder
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 slices of bacon,  fried, drained and crumbled
  • Green onion, chopped for garnish


Cook potatoes in water until tender. Mash with the milk and butter; cover and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a large casserole dish with vegetable spray.

In a skillet, saute the onion and mushrooms together with the elk meat, garlic and onion powder. Cook until no longer pink. Drain well and place on the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Cover with mashed potatoes and spread out to sides (so it is sealed).

Bake for 30 minutes. Cover with the shredded cheese and bacon. Bake another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with warm homemade bread and a salad.
