Venison Bacon Burger with Roasted Poblano Aioli

Let's face it, most of us are obsessed with bacon. If you're looking to give your ground venison some extra flavor, grind some bacon into it as well. It'll add fat to an otherwise lean game and will help keep your venison burgers nice and juicy. 

To add a bit of smokiness, we roasted a large poblano pepper, some garlic, chopped it all up and then added it to mayonnaise for a mild, peppery spread. You can roast the poblano on the grill, under the broiler or over the fire of a gas range. This is a super easy recipe that is perfect for the grill this summer. We hope you get the chance to try it!

Steamed Walleye with Pork Sausage and White Wine Sauce

We've partnered with Jones Dairy Farm to create wild game and fish recipes that incorporate their products. To date, this is one of our favorites! Perfectly steamed walleye fillets lay on a bed of fresh tomatoes and a white wine sauce made of sausage, thyme, and saffron, sprinkled with fresh herbs such as marjoram and parsley from our "garden"-- this made a lovely lunch for two. Find a good loaf of French baguette to mop up the rich broth.

We also wanted to share a photo from this past weekend. Rick and I went walleye fishing at Johnson Lake in Nebraska with cousins Pete and Aletha Brown. We didn't catch our limit, but it was still a fantastic haul! We caught so many drum, too, which we kept. Even though most people throw them back, drum are tasty-- good enough for a fish fry. Keep that in mind if you ever catch a drum. 

Hope you're all staying cool this summer. It's been in the 90s and pushing 100 here. Makes us a little uneasy because it's only June.
