It started at deer camp. If your deer camp is anything like mine, we work hard, we hunt hard, and we eat well!  Especially on Saturday’s after a hunt; if it’s been a successful hunt, the deer get cleaned in a hurry because we gather at someone’s camp to eat and usually watch football and tell stories about what happened during that sit.

One weekend, one of the guys cooked what he called a “Fat Boy!” What is a Fat Boy? A huge ball of sausage stuffed with all kinds of goodness wrapped in about a pound of bacon. It was delicious but it was a little too greasy for me, personally, which led me to recreate my own version of a fat boy, a “deer burger loaf.” Still stuffed with all kinds of goodness.

This recipe is perfect for those hunting days, when you’ve put in the hours and you’re worn out, but don't really want to cook but you need good food.

It's your make-ahead quick meal that goes great with just about any side.

If you’re going to make one, you better just double the recipe and make two! They’re going to eat it all!
