These five side dishes will bring your venison’s flavor to life.

If you’re a venison junkie like myself, you’re always wanting to try something new. Maybe you’re interested in preparing a dish in a new way, or it might be trying different side dishes with the main course. Whatever your venison niche may be, here are five side dishes everyone needs to try. Honestly, these sides pair great with most other wild game entrees, too.

Sweet potatoes

For starters, sweet potatoes can be prepared any number of ways. The obvious is baked and loaded with honey, butter and brown sugar. However, I like to chop them up into hash browns or slice them and cook them with olive oil to make sweet potato fries.

Garlic mashed potatoes

This is a standard venison steak side dish. Either load them up with garlic butter, cheese and chives, or pour a little gravy over them. Either way, mash potatoes are a safe go-to. While we’re on the subject, roasted potatoes are also a great option, especially roasted red potatoes.

Bacon green beans

Obviously we don’t want an entire plate full of carbohydrate side dishes. One of my favorites is baked green beans with bacon bites. Chop the real stuff rather than buying bacon bits. However, if you’re in a rush, bacon bits will do. Likewise, preparing a green bean casserole with bacon, similar to a traditional Thanksgiving dish, is also a good option.

Vegetable medley

This is perfect for all you veggie-lovers out there. Grab a cast-iron skillet, throw all your favorite vegetables in the pan, pour a little white wine over them and sauté them for 5-10 minutes on medium heat. Personally, I enjoy green beans, Brussels sprouts, cherry tomatoes, onion, squash and zucchini. This is one of my favorite dishes to pair with grilled venison backstrap.

American dish

Finally, if you eat as many venison hamburgers as I do, some good ol’ baked beans, potato salad and homemade french fries make for a classic meal. I typically grill my ground venison burgers for 5 minutes on each side and then serve them up. This is a household favorite for us.
