This is the old secret family venison hotdish recipe that ends up in deer camp each year.

I can't remember how it got its name.

  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground venison or elk
  • 1 lb. sliced bacon
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup celery (diced)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can peas (16 oz.)
  • 1 can mushrooms
  • 2 cans tomato soup
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice

Brown beef and 1/2 of the bacon (cut into small pieces). Remove most of bacon grease.

Add butter, celery and onion, simmer 10 minutes.

Add peas, mushrooms, tomato soup and cooked rice.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Place the remainder of the bacon (slices) on top.

Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

I made the Russian Fluff and it was just as good as I remembered! I actually changed it slightly by adding a can of carrots and and an extra can of mushrooms, but probably tasted the same as when you treated us at TW's. I raved about it enough that my Mother and sister want me to make it for them over the holidays! Very easy recipe which fits my skill level quite well ...
