ELK….It’s what’s for dinner!

Remember that Elk meat my parents sent me? Well, after long thought I finally decided what to make first…..it so would’ve been the backstrap had Chicken been home, but he’s off gallavanting around Long Island this week…alright, I guess he’s probably been busy working, but any trip that leads 5+ miles from this house is a vacation to me! Sorry I got off the subject… back to the meat….I decided to try an Elk sausage quiche! Turns out, it’s really good! Wanna know how to get it? Alright here goes……..

Step 1. Pay your dues & send your name in to N.M. Game & Fish….wait for months to see if you ‘draw’ an elk license!

Step 2. Pack up into the mountains, track said elk, wait for just the right moment and….. POW, you’ve got your elk!

Step 3. Cut meat from said elk, and pack it out of the mountains!

You what? You just wanted to know what “I” did for this Quiche?
Oh, alright then, here goes…

Step 1. Be your parents ‘favorite’ daughter (ha, ha Kamie….just kidding) 🙂

Step 2. Tell them your boys would just Looooooovvee to eat some of that elk…especially jerky!

Step 3. Accept styrofoam (frozen) box from Fed Ex and voila ….elk meat!

Seriously now…here’s the recipe I came up with:

1 1/2 C. shredded cheese (I used colby jack)
4 tsp. flour
3 eggs
1 C. milk
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
pepper to taste
handful spinach leaves
chopped onions (1 small)
chopped or chunk(s) elk sausage
1 unbaked frozen pie crust

Preheat oven to 400

1. fry onions & sausage in pan (in about a Tbs. of olive oil)

2. Remove from heat and add spinach

3. Put cheese & flour in bottom of pie crust (mix); & then dump in sausage mixture
4. Combine eggs, garlic salt, pepper, mustard & milk & pour on top of sausage
5. Add a little extra cheese to top

6. Bake for about 40-50 minutes or until browned

Tastes like chicken! No, it really doesn’t, but it is VERY yummy! We will be having leftovers for dinner tomorrow…Yeah!

    Yeah well, I’m not so sure I want any of that Elk. If it were deer, I would put up a fight! But only the backstrap that is battered and fried, served with moms mashed potatoes and cream gravy! Yum!
