Default Venison Skillet Baked Potatoes

This is definitely one of my favorite things I've made in a long time. Meat, potatoes, and cheese. Can't miss!

Venison Skillet Baked Potatoes


1 pound ground venison
3 – 4 medium potatoes, sliced thin
2 Tbsp olive oil
tsp salt
tsp pepper
2 – 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces sour cream
3 green onion tips, sliced thin
2 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp seasoning of choice
2 c shredded cheese


Preheat oven to 450. Scrub and slice potatoes into 1/8 inch slices. Place in a medium bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and stir to coat. Place potatoes on two foil-lined baking sheets in a single layer. Place pans in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Check the potatoes after 10 minutes. If additional baking is required, flip and bake an additional 5 – 10 minutes. When potatoes are tender in the center and slightly brown and crispy on the edges, loosen from the pan and set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 350.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a cast iron skillet (if available) or other skillet. Once crispy, remove to a paper towel to cool.

Drain grease from skillet and set aside.

Brown ground venison in a separate large skillet. Once browned, stir in sour cream, sliced green onion tips, butter, and seasoning of choice (reserve 2 Tbsp green onion for topping). Heat through, then remove from heat and set aside.

In the cast iron skillet or other greased casserole dish, layer half the potatoes, half the meat mixture, 1 c cheese, remaining potatoes, remaining meat, remaining cheese, crumbled bacon, and reserved green onion.

Place skillet in the oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly browned.
