Easy Venison Potpie
I love Potpie recipes, and Easy Venison Potpie is no exception. This delicious entree has a very simple filling and is made with refrigerated pie crusts. It really couldn’t be any easier. Instead of a beef or chicken filling, I used ground venison. Using Golden Mushroom Soup gave the filling a rich, deep flavor only adding to the scrumptious taste of this main dish.
I asked a friend for some ground venison. Her husband has a deer lease in Texas and he usually brings home several every year. I wanted to try to make several recipes with the venison instead of traditional ground beef. I got several packs from her and have really enjoyed making these recipes.
This potpie recipe would probably work fine in a regular pie plate. Unfortunately, mine had already been packed up for a move by that time. All I had left was this rectangular 8×12″ baking dish. It’s certainly easier putting the crust in the circular pie plate, but I fitted it into the other pan just as well. If you’re making a Homemade Pie Crust, it won’t matter what you bake it in since you can shape the crust however you like.
If you have relatives who hunt or have easy access to ground venison (or chunks for that matter), this is a terrific recipe to use that wild game. For that matter, I think it would be good with elk or bison as well. The next time you have venison in your freezer, why not pull out a pack and whip up this delectable main dish. I assure you, like Pavlov’s dogs, you’ll be salivating from the first bite. 🙂
Easy Venison PotPie will be a huge hit with your family.
If you have family members who hunt, this is a great way to use up that wild game!
My husband and I loved the way this recipe turned out. We each had several servings. 🙂
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Roll out pie crust and fit into a round pie plate or small 9×9″ or 8×12″ glass baking dish. Roll out the top crust and cut in strips for a lattice crust. Set aside.
Meanwhile, fry ground venison with onions in a Dutch oven over low to medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Sprinkle with seasonings.
Add a can of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom Soup NOT regular cream of mushroom soup, plus a bag of mixed vegetables.
Stir to combine and heat through about a minute.
Remove from stove top and pour filling into bottom crust once top crust is ready to go.
Cut the other pie crust with a pastry wheel and place strips over top of filling as a lattice crust. You can weave the crust if you’re so inclined.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes until filling is hot and bubbly.
Easy Venison PotPie turned out so tasty. This basic recipe can be used with any kind of wild game.
Easy Venison PotPie is an amazing comfort food meal, especially in winter or spring months when the weather outside is still cool.
Every morsel is good down to the last bite.
Here’s the recipe.

(My own concoction)
The Campbell’s Golden Mushroom Soup gives this recipe a deeper, richer flavor than regular cream of mushroom soup. It’s more expensive, but the outcome is significantly better.
If you enjoy venison or wild game, this is a terrific entree for you!
