Hunter’s Venison Ranch Patty Melt

Hunter’s Venison Ranch Patty Melt

BY MICHAEL PENDLEY AUTHOR OF TIMBER 2 TABLE 

Like most teenage boys, our soon to be 15-year-old son, Hunter, eats a lot. I mean an amount on par with an average family of four. Luckily for us, he loves to cook and to tinker with recipes. This Venison Ranch Patty Melt is one of his creations, and one of his go-to recipes when he is cooking.

Hunter with one of the three whitetails he has taken so far this season.

He recommends Texas Toast for the bread and sharp cheddar cheese with caramelized onions to top the patty melt. While he grills the patty melts from time to time, his favorite cooking method is seared in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Serve the patty melt on Texas toast.

For best results, use venison ground with a little added fat. For burgers, we like 75 percent venison ground with 25 percent bacon for a nice smoky flavor.

 

Timber 2 Table Recipe

Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes

Ingredients

3 pounds ground venison (try bacon ground with 25 percent bacon for this one)

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning mix

¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce

1 Tablespoon kosher salt

1 Tablespoon black pepper

Toppings

Caramelized onions

Sharp cheddar cheese

Cooking Instructions

Mix ranch seasoning packet, Worcestershire Sauce, salt and pepper into venison. Divide meat into six 8-ounce patties. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat with one teaspoon of vegetable oil. Place two or three patties, depending on skillet size, into the pan. Cook, without flipping, 7-9 minutes on the first side until moisture droplets push up through the top of the patty. Flip once, cook for an additional three minutes then top with a slice of cheese. Cover pan until cheese is melted, move patty to lightly browned Texas Toast, top with onions, and serve.

Try grinding the venison with a little bacon for added fat and flavor.

Travel: Leaving the Commonplace Behind

What is the definition of a vacation? Well, there are those living in the snow who believe their vacation should come along with the warmest beach and a few fancy drinks with little umbrellas in them so they can relax before heading back to the deep-freeze. There are also those who sit at desks all day and dream of a vacation that allows them to hike those trails in the Great Outdoors. There are even more who have the kids literally screaming in their ear who simply want a vacation from their vacation.

Making Money Online

Yes…there are books, audiotapes, videos on YouTube, seminars, webinars and every other ‘nar’ you can possibly think of that offer up information on how YOU can be a millionaire using nothing but your own home computer. Of course, if wealth were that easy, no one would be clogging the highways on Monday morning. They would be home in their robe enjoying the day and counting their oodles and oodles of cash. Not to mention, you would think if wealth online was a plan that worked there would be far more doing just that, considering literally everyone is spending at least three hours on their computers each and every day for personal time and are staring at their cell phone screens 24/7.

It\’s not very clear whether Harry Catto\’s (Joe Blakemore) death was a murder or a suicide. One thing\’s for certain, though. It wasn\’t merely a mishap, because nobody accidentally sticks a gun in his own mouth and pulls the trigger. The cops suspect that he killed himself, but his father (David Troughton) is too much in shock to press them to launch a full investigation.
