This weekend is race weekend for everyone around the country, but especially here in Indianapolis! We decided to compile a list of some of our race day favorite with a twist! All recipes shown are designed to be eaten with all kinds of wild game! If you are looking for inspiration to turn things up a notch with your game meat, check out these recipes

  1. Wild Game Fajitas with Casey Butler

The first food to make it on the list is a crowd favorite anywhere you go. Also, these fajitas are best enjoyed using antelope or venison. The recipe is simple enough that almost anyone can cook it. And versatile enough that most game meats could be substituted in!

Be sure to be the talk of the bar-b-que with this great take on a traditional hispanic dish!

  1. Nilgai, Duck Sausage Kabobs

SIF you are looking to seriously impressed with your culinary prowess, you cant go wrong with this awesome kabob. The recipe calls for the combination of antelope, duck, bacon, and a slew of veggies, with the duck and bacon being worked into a sausage.

The ingredient list is the longest part because after you have the ingredients arranged on your stick, it’s up to your grilling! It is recommended that you use a pellet grill with hickory pellets. But it will bdeliciousus on any type of grill! A great treat for friends to eat causally whilenjoyingng the weekend!

  1. Wild Caught Trout Burger

I decided that list should include something that even if you don’t have wild game burnong a hole in your freezer, you can still spice up your race weekend. This burger is BEST made with some fresh  caught trout, typically ones that are a half pound or bigger. However, you can really use any kind of flaky fish. Match that with curry-lim emayo and you have yourself some serious flavor.

While fish and burgers are not tradtioanlly synomyys terms, this one pairs very well in the summer time and any cold beverage of your choice. Adult or not, but probably adult.

  1. Grilled Onion and Mushroom Elk Burger

Okay I know what your thinkin, and yes I put 2 burgeres in a row ion this list. Both becvasue I think byurgerse are the ultimate racwe weekend food abnd because I know some people are adverse to fish. To quote Joe Rogan “fish is good, if there is no meat around”

This take on the clasisi cmushroom and  swiss burger is awesome. The lean elk miked with the  savoriness of the mushrooms and onions, relly makes a restaurant quality buirger. Except youd be hard pressed to find elk on any menuy near you.

  1. Venison Nachos

Rounding off the list with a true weekend classic. This twist on regular nachos wil make even the poickeist weater scarf down wild game. The ingredient list is simple enough that you don’t need tos tress over the prep. While the flavors are prounoucned enough to cover any “game” flavor that might be left on your deer.

This one worksgrerat as an overall crowd pleaser and appetizer. The venison can really be substituted for anything you like, but deer is the way to go with this one!
