Please rate my recipe at bottom of this page.

Hunting is a part of my family’s life and life in Wyoming. We keep a freezer full of game meat to feed us all year long. My husband and son love antelope, I could take it or leave it. It is a little strong for my liking so I’m always looking for ways to fix it so I can enjoy dinner too.

This was sort of an accidental success. We thawed antelope burger for dinner and had a package of thawed pork sausage that didn’t get eaten over the weekend. I looked at several meatball recipes for basic ideas and added my own style. Smoking it on the outdoor grill was key, antelope meatballs that I even loved.

my own style. Smoking it on the outdoor grill was key, antelope meatballs that I even loved.

We serve these on pasta with spaghetti sauce but they taste awesome on their own, in a meatball sub, and would even be great in a meatball slider.

In years past I used my hand to mix meatloaf, meatballs, ect. This time I used my Pampered Chef Mix ‘n Chop… and I’m never going back! it did a through job combining the ingredients and I didn’t get my hands icky.
