Bacon and Venison Scramble

Bacon and Venison Scramble

We know our thick-cut, smoky bacon is classic breakfast flavor, but track down some venison if you’re on the hunt for a new addition to your morning meal. The lean meat is a great match for our full, bold flavor.

Venison sausage is easy enough to find at your local butcher shop, grocery store, or online retailer. Once you’ve got your bacon and sausage cooked up, add eggs, pepper, onions and cheese to make for a hearty breakfast to help fill you up and fuel your day.

Serving Size:



10 slices Wright® Brand Naturally Hickory Smoked Bacon
3/4 Cup venison sausage, raw
1/2 yellow onion
2 poblano peppers, seeded and diced
8 eggs, beaten
3/4 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tablespoons scallions, thinly sliced


1. Heat up a non-stick or cast iron skillet to medium heat. Gently place Wright® Brand Naturally Hickory Smoked Bacon in the pan and cook until brown and crispy.

2. Remove bacon from pan and place onto paper towel to drain excess grease. Set aside. Have a taste if you like.

3. In the same pan, add the venison sausage. Fully cook until brown. Once cooked, place sausage on paper towel to drain excess grease.

4. Your skillet should be pretty hot by now. Add onions and peppers and cook until onions have become translucent. The veggies will soak up some of those bacon and venison flavors left behind in the pan.

5. …but that doesn’t mean we don’t need the bacon and sausage. Add them back into the pan, breaking the bacon as you stir all ingredients together.

6. Add eggs and stir periodically until eggs have cooked.

7. Add half the cheddar cheese and half the scallions over the top. Once the cheese melts, it’s done.

8. Serve four even portions of scramble. Top with the remaining cheese and scallions.
