Tasty Thursday 9/27/12

As an update on last week's post, the venison tenderloin wrapped in bacon.....I made them Sunday night and everyone loved them.  They also reheat incredibly well.  I did make a few adjustments though...

* I marinated in apple juice with a couple packets of spiced cider drink mix included because I couldn't find apple cider at my store.
* I cut each strip of bacon in half and then wrapped.
* I skewered the chunks (5-6 to a skewer) and grilled that way....it was much easier to control and I didn't have to use a ton of toothpicks.
* I only used 1 bottle of bbq sauce because 2 seemed like it was going to be too much.

Here's the final outcome!!



This is my next new recipe to make......

I love the venison bacon wrap recipe! We've always made them just by wrapping bacon around the meat and grilling but haven't added the sauce- I will be trying that one this week!

Baked Apples! I have not had them in a long time. My mom always made the best! Can't wait to see the end results.

The venison looks great also, although I have never been a lover of venison.

That looks soooooo good!! I'm hungry! I'll have to try that recipe with either chicken or pork (which is closer in flavor to venison?)
