Venison And Cheese Pockets
With the snow from Winter Storm Nemo keeping us inside, my wife and I were determined to come up with something out of the ordinary for dinner tonight, so we gave a swing at making Venison and Cheese Pockets. In a word they were AWESOME!
I got the ball rolling earlier today by making up a batch of Homemade Pizza Dough. I set it to rise in the den near the wood stove and we went out to finish up the shoveling.
My wife took a pound of ground venison and browned it off, she seasoned it with Mexican Chili Powder, Paprika, Salt, and Pepper. She took the dough and quartered it. Each quarter she filled with the seasoned venison and a mix of sharp cheddar and pepper jack.
She fold the dough over and kneaded them shut. I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled just a pinch of sea salt on them.
They went into a 450 degree oven for 12 minutes.
Here they are coming out!
We had them with Black Bean Salsa and Sour Cream on the side. I had a some Siracchi with mine. They were excellent! They were also the perfect Self Sufficient meal to what is ending up being a crazy weekend here on Long Island. It is nice to know that with a few simple items from the freezer and pantry we were able to make a filling and nutritious meal.
