Ingredients assembled with ground venison browned in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.  Ground chuck or ground elk works great also if Bambi sensitive!  Use very lean ground beef only and well drained.  Omit the olive oil if using ground beef which has fat added.

Ready for some hand mixing with low tech tool!

Ingredients mixed and ready for casserole dish.  Below baked venison hash brown casserole:

This is a copy and paste of a hash brown casserole recipe by Janet Harris in The Adcock Traditions Family Cookbook circa 1997 of which I added the ground venison, chilies, red and green bell pepper and additional seasonings.
