    That sounds really good. We don't make it often, but when we do we make a double batch so I have plenty to take to my property for a few days of work.

    I have done venison enchiladas a few times. Always a crowd pleaser at a potluck. Just replace ground beef with venison.

    I’ve been doing a few variations of Shepard’s pie for awhile. We settled on a basic gravy over mashed potatoes version last year using an Instapot. I made it last night, it only took about 1 hour. Key vegetable/fresh ingredients are rutabaga, cabbage, onion, mushroom, carrots, garlic and burger. A touch of pepper and beef stock, then thicken when it’s done. The family likes it better than the oven/casserole version, and it’s a lot easier.

    No doubt that however you make it, it’s one of the best recipes.

    My kids always liked it with noodles instead of mashed potatoes.
    Sometimes a little sour cream to finish.

    The sour cream is a good call.

    Every other week I cook up 2 lbs of burger with onion, garlic and tomato for a few hours. Stick it in the fridge, then split it up in 2 pots and make chili and spaghetti sauce. Have the spaghetti sauce that night, refrigerator the chili for dinner the next night. It’s working well.
